A four leaf clover, if found, is considered lucky. The 4th leave means will have luck in your future. This week, we made our four leaf clover and I considered myself lucky to be able to have this kids in my class, eating all this naturally green food!
4 Leaf Clovers
1 green tortilla wrap,
family’s taste preference.
Lime Juice (optional
Salt, Pepper, Garlic
powder to taste.
Add in’s: Chopped
tomatoes, onions, red pepper, fresh garlic, feta, etc. (optional)
Mix/Mash all above
ingredients together with fork. Lime or
lemon juice helps it from turning brown too quickly.
Fold over wrap in ½. Cut
out heart shapes with cookie cutter. You
can get at least 3 med/large sized hearts or lots of mini hearts.
Place a small piece of
cheese between the 2 layers.
Toast in toaster oven or
in pan on stove top until cheese is melted.
Place 3 or 4 hearts at
the top for the ‘leafs’, and use a cucumber stick for the ‘stem’. 4 leaves = lucky!
Serve with guacamole for
Kids Kitchen Konnection: When kids get to cut, chop, stir, and mix – they are more likely to try those foods. Their faces were that not pleased when they saw all the green food we had to work with today – but, in the end, making something fun and tasty, encouraged most of them to try!
