Our Favourite Meal

If you could order up your favourite meal right now what would it be??

Allanah's favourite meal would be an entrĂ©e of shrimps in a bed of lettuce, followed by lamb shanks. 

The lamb shanks would be all covered in rich, brown gravy and I would have some roast vegetables that I like like parsnips, potatoes and kumara and maybe some peas and corn as well. 

I would have home made mint sauce with it.

To drink I would have pink sparkling grape fruit juice with strawberries floating in it.

To finish off for pudding I would have pavlova, red jelly, hundreds and thousands, Spanish cream with lashings of whipped cream on top.

What would you have has your most favourite meal?

Fireworks Book in ITunes

Our next iTunes Book has been published and is ready for download on the iTunes Book Store.

This is how we put it together. 

We wrote our stories in a Google Form linked from our blog

We each took screen grabs of fireworks that we had made with the iPad App Real Fireworks.

Then we copied those stories into Book Creator. 

Then we recorded our narration of the text we had written and published it in iTunes for everyone to enjoy.

Here is the book made into a video.

Here is the embed code if you want to put it on your blog.
