Last week was busy, to say the least. On Monday, many teens pitched in to help Paul and Kayla make four wonderful pies! Makayla and Kayla peeled all of the apples while Paul mixed together a pumpkin concoction, all the while Faith and Megan L. became pro pie crusters! Kayla melted the brown sugar in the microwave, which was supposed to top the apples (note: if brown sugar is harder than a rock and dry, DO NOT add 1/4 cup of water and place in microwave for 25 seconds).
It turned out wonderfully anyway, and Megan has since been named The Pie Master. With the help of Paul and Kayla, Megan constructed four pies, two of which were donated to the community Thanksgiving put on by the Washington County Youth Service Bureau.
Thanksgiving carried over to Tuesday at the BTC. Kayla and Paul were sweating over a hot stove all day to make a wonderful “Teensgiving” meal for all of the youth who could make it. It included mashed potatoes, Polish broccoli, cheesy carrots, and a roast!
The turn out was more than Paul and Kayla expected, which was amazing to see! They greatly appreciated everyone who came out for the meal and participated in the activities going on in the space. It was great to see everyone’s smiling faces before the holiday!
