Spark had an Italian theme.
He chose spaghetti and meatballs with a bread stick and garden salad. His beverage was milk and his desert was brownies with ice cream. We made the bread sticks because they were part of his table setting. The other part of his setting was the candle in the wine bottle. To get the bottle with the basket on the bottom we had to buy a bottle of $14.00 Italian wine. We found out we don't like Italian wine and ended up dumping the wine down the drain. That turned into an expensive candle holder.
She made an Anvil Sandwich - recipe here. The rest of her menu was potato chips, an apple, milk and peanut butter cookies. For her table setting we found an old black lunch box, not an easy feat, a hard hat, blue checkered tablecloth, rough, brown napkins, a thermos, various tools and a rolled up newspaper to read during lunch break.
This one of our favorite projects in 4-H and are already looking forward to doing it again next year.
