CREA Teacher

,
As most of you might know by now, last May 2012 I was appointed Teacher of the Month by ineveryCREA.
Thanks to this honour I had the chance of meeting lots of creative teachers who work with ICT and design various projects at their schools and with their students.
During the whole month, I had the difficult task of being in charge of selecting the best school of the month, a school that had to carry out a creative project regarding The Olympics.
As I have just mentioned, the task was a lot of hard work, since all the candidates applying for the contest truly deserved the award, but I tried to do my best and I certainly accomplished the duty with great pleasure and lots of joy.
Yesterday 19 June, I was invited to attend the 2011 - 2012 CREA event, where I received my own award, for which I am sincerely thankful to ineveryCREA and Angélica Suárez, and where I spent a delightful day with all the other CREA teachers and most importantly, where I met the most imaginative CREA kids and parents you could think of.



Thanks for making my day!!!
Keep on being CREA people!!!

Venera de Navia

,
By Jose and Vicky



This is a dessert from Navia (Asturias) typical in all festivals. It is so easy to make that you can always be successful. Let’s do it then!

Ingredients:

2 Eggs and 2 yolks
900 grs sugar
1kg grounded almonds
1Wafer foil

Decoration:
½ white of an egg
A little bit of powdered sugar
Green and red ice fruits glacés

Preparation
Mix all the ingredients together until you obtain small pastry dough. Preheat the oven at 200 degrees. Then make small cylindered shapes with your hands wet, like snakes.
Put them in the oven, and be careful, because this step is very important, since when you see the dough turn into toasted colour, it means that it is already done.

Decoration:
Mix half the white of the eggs and whip half an egg until light. Then thicken it by adding powdered sugar.  After that decorate it as it is shown in the picture above.

Enjoy!
