Try It, You’ll Like It


February 22, 2012 by WITS Houston

One of our goals at Writers in the Schools is to get kids to LOVE reading and writing. This is easier with some students than others. And for our more reluctant writers, sometimes we have to venture out into their world, allowing them to have fun with their imaginations. For kids who thrive on fare such as Captain Underpants or Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, the challenge of writing a disgusting recipe or yucky menu is met with glee. Would you eat in this bistro?

Gross‐Out Menu

Wormy Water $.50
Maggot Margarita $2
Blueberry Booger Smoothie $1.50
Moldy Mac‐&‐Cheese $10
Sautéed Spinach in Spit $15

Rubbish Ravioli $20

    Vomit vanilla ice cream would be good with puke pie.
