Third graders share holiday recipes

Travis Morse/Register-News


MT. VERNON — With Thanksgiving coming up next week, you can almost smell the turkey roasting in the air. Appetites are ready for classic Thanksgiving fare and newer traditional dinner treats.

Students in Katie Baumhoegger's third grade class at the District 80 Primary Center are ready for some Thanksgiving culinary delights — and written their own recipes for their family to follow.

The recipes are part of a writing project teaching about different types of writing. While the young students may not write perfect recipes, writing recipes will be something that follows them throughout life, as shown in the Holiday Recipes section of today's Register-News.

The Holiday Recipes feature tried-and-true recipes from local cooks. The third grade students may not have tried out their recipes, but they are definitely the recipe to get everyone in the holiday spirit!
