Tricking the Children

Imitating a college professor who served coffee during final exams, I used to serve coffee to my 8th grade students for a big test when I was a History Teacher.  What the 8th graders didn't know was that it was decaffinated coffee.  Who was I to tell them the truth that they weren't actually experiencing a caffeine buzz?  It was too much fun to watch them pretend to be jittery.

Tonight I made "Pulp Muffins" with this afternoon's juice pulp.  The muffins turned out to be quite green so I called them "St. Patrick's Day Muffins".  I thought it would be more appealing than Spinach-Lettuce-Celery Muffins.  They were none the wiser.

Vegetable Juice:
1 cucumber
1 c. spinach
1/2 head romaine lettuce
2 stalks of celery
8 strawberries
1 orange
This juice smelled like strawberry heaven, but tasted like vegetables.

The juice made about 3/4 cup of damp pulp.
