This year one thing we (media specialists) have been encouraged to work on is the promotion of our programs and our media center. In the current economy with some districts getting rid of media specialists this is very important. One thing I have done all year to promote my media center is what I call, Book Bites; the first Friday of each month I bring in a treat for the teachers and pull a display of books to go with it. Our kindergarten teachers are wrapping up a unit on Georgia so I wanted to do something with a Georgia theme. We also are in the middle of a 1/2 price staff appreciation book fair, and I found a new cook book that I just had to have. I found a recipe for a Peanut Butter Texas Sheet Cake that I wanted to try.
It turned out great. I just barely managed to get a shot of it before my husband dug into it. I am a big fan of peanut butter and this has just enough peanut butter flavor to it. I made one change to the recipe, it called for creamy peanut butter and all I had was crunchy. It added a little crunch to it.
