We are a Restaurant!
Have you ever heard someone say, "This kitchen isn’t a restaurant?" Imagine if it were. What would you call it? What kind of food would you serve? When would your restaurant be open? The next time you eat a meal that would be served in your family's restaurant, take a picture of it and discuss why it would be perfect for your kitchen restaurant.
Creating an imaginary restaurant is a great way to explain why you would make certain choices and use lots of details to describe your menu items.
Take your "restaurant" to the next level and give it a trial run! Plan a meal for your restaurant and create a menu. Set the table and decide who will do the different jobs in a restaurant. Is there a greeter? A server? Who is the chef? Maybe you can invite friends over to be the "customers." Have fun creating your very own family restaurant!
