Avocado toast with quail eggs

Some Jefferson Elementary School students had the chance to try avocado toast with quail eggs Thursday, Jan. 23, 2020, at the Cape Girardeau school. Inspired by the book "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs" by Judi Barrett where food rains from the sky, resource reading title teacher Rachel Bentlage said students had the chance to make toast with quail eggs, taken from the quail housed at the school, or to construct a raft or house made out of food. The quail egg toast also featured fresh avocado. Bentlage said many of the kids have never tried avocado or a quail egg, and she wants the kids to have a “totally different experience.”
