Moonshot and Moon Pies
I thought that today was a great day to read, Moonshot: The Flight of Apollo 11 by Brian Floca to the children, and since we haven't made anything together in the kitchen lately, we tried our hand at making old fashioned Moon Pies.
Moonshot is a gorgeously, and realistically, illustrated story of Apollo 11's trip to the moon. It's a wealth of information in several different formats- there is an illustrated timeline on the front pages and an essay detailing the history of the flight on the back.
this recipe for the graham cracker cookies and this recipe for homemade marshmallow fluff. I sort of cheated and spread chocolate on the top of each Moon Pie instead of dipping the whole thing. A big glass of cold milk was a perfect accompaniment!
