Essential Ingredients for Your Cupboard

A while back I was asked to do a workshop for a school in Santa Barbara… they asked if I could prepare a list of the ingredients I use to make the Ooey Gooey® recipes so they could have some stuff on hand for the teachers to bring back to their classrooms. They said they had received a grant and wanted to provide some of the materials for the teachers who were going to be there that day. Sure I said! Not an unusual request… oftentimes workshop coordinators prepare goodie boxes so the participants can bring home some of the materials used in the workshop. Let me tell you though…I had no idea about the surprise we were all in for once we arrived in Santa Barbara.

It was so amazing that we took pictures!! They said they pretty much cleaned out the local Smart and Final and that the manager was real excited about doing business with them (I’m sure!) I have held on to these pictures knowing that someday I would pay tribute to the dedication and commitment these administrators and directors had for their staff. Each teacher got to take one of everything home with them!! This is how to spend your money, support staff and stock your pantry! Please know we know that not everyone gets big grants and we understand many budgets (and storage spaces) might not accommodate this…. It does however, provide you with an overview of what belongs in the teacher’s cupboard…
