Yesterday we headed down to the beach for some Bodyboarding!

Summer is still here and it was beautifully warm in and out of the water 🙂

We collected the boards from the wonderful team at Let’s Go Surfing, then I gave the students a quick demonstration on the beach before they headed into waves!

The waves were pretty small but they all managed to catch a few and had lots of fun, which is the important thing!

Crepe Competition! 13 March

On Wednesday we had morning and afternoon Crepe Competitions!

We worked in two groups to follow the below simple crepe recipe:

INGREDIENTS

  • 4 cups plain flour
  • A few pinches of salt
  • 4 eggs
  • 4 cups of milk

METHOD

  • Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Blend until smooth. Add a little water and mix to desired consistency. Cover and set aside to rest for 5 minutes.
  • Heat a medium non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Spray with cooking oil. Using 1/4 cup mixture per pancake, pour batter over pan, tilting from side to side so batter covers base in a thin film. Cook pancake for about 1 minute or until underside is golden, then use a spatula to flip. Cook other side for just under a minute until golden. Repeat with remaining mixture, spraying pan with cooking oil between pancakes.

Hongki impressed us all with his flipping skills, with Lisa and Laura also giving it a good go!

Once everyone had their own crepe, the competition started!

The students had strawberries, blueberries, bananas, honey, nutella, nuts and whipped cream at their disposal to help them create the winning crepe!

I couldn’t possibly try them all, so instead judged them on their appearance…

Talita and Busakorn took the win with their delicious looking creation, combining all the available ingredients!

Making Dreamcatchers! 7 March

Yesterday Orla and I taught the students how to make dreamcathers!

I had a small group in the afternoon, which made it easy to show and help each of them individually, ensuing they were made to perfection!

We all opted to go for neutral, rustic designs. Once we had covered the outer ring and made the web, we made them more decorative with hanging feathers, tassels, shells and beads.

Maria and Patricia made theirs to go in their van, which will no doubt give them fond memories of Byron and Lexis when they’re on their travels, whilst Raphael decided his made a great accessory for glasses!

Sushi Making! 6 March

On Wednesday we made sushi here at Lexis Byron!

We patiently waited for the rice to cook in the rice cooker, but after an hour had to put some of in the microwave to speed the process up! We were all hungry and keen to start making our rolls…

For fillings we had tuna, cream cheese, smoked salmon, avocado, carrot and cucumber.

One of our students, Dana, works in a sushi restaurant and rolled me a delicious tuna and avocado roll <3 Thanks Dana and Surim for teaching us how to make sushi!
