all reference the country of France.  Jane Lambert, the author of Five In A Row suggests making food that corresponds to the stories you read.  She even has a FIAR cookbook.  I think its fun to try and incorporate new foods with the stories we are studying when possible. So, after lots of brainstorming and a trip down the frozen food isle at Trader Joe’s we ended up with the following fun French foods for my kiddos to taste test: 2 flavors of quiche, croissants, “Wee Brie”, Concord grape juice, white grape juice, and a grape trio medley.  I bought everything at Trader Joe’s except for the “Laughing Cow Wee Brie” which I got at Winco.  I have to admit that the idea of different varieties of grape juice and brie is a kindergarten version of a wine and cheese party.  I know, I know, it’s terrible of me but I gotta be honest here!  Of course my critics, the kids, didn’t like anything except for the grapes and grape juice! That was fine with me since I got the leftovers and I really enjoy the quiche, croissants and brie!  C’est la vie (that’s life; such is life)!
