Home economics assembles nine-foot burrito (VIDEO)

Wednesday morning, while most students were sitting behind desks, the students taking home economics were spending their class time down in the kitchen, Nov. 20. The class spent the day tackling a special project: rolling up a nine-foot burrito.

Students took turns spreading on beans, sprinkling cheese and piling on meat. For the grand finale, all students gathered in a row to roll up the burrito and eat lunch for breakfast.

Sophomore Ali Cowan, who came into the kitchen a little late, was surprised to hear that the class was attempting to put together a nine-foot burrito.

“I think Mrs. [Sharon] Scharf can pull this off,” Cowan said. “I think this is a creative idea. Whether it turns out well or not will determine whether it?s a good idea.”

Sharon Scharf the home economics teacher got the idea from trying to out-do a recipe she found on the La Victoria web site.

“I found a recipe for an eight-foot burrito around 13 years ago,” Scharf said. “And of course, I had to extend it. We?ve been doing this project annually for many years now.”

For 14 of the 16 years Scharf has been teaching home economics, her classes have created burritos made to impress even the hungriest teenager. And often the normally lunch or dinner meal has become a breakfast staple during first semester.

Once finished, the students all cut off a part. Most everyone seemed to enjoy the results.

    The edible cell project was enjoyable. It was interesting to see what foods people used to build their cells. This project also was good review about animal and plant cells.
