PDF Texture Chart   --  This is a resource for different words to talk about the texture of things. Students should have this in their binder.
PDF Examples of Appetizers   --  If you aren't exactly sure what an appetizer is, or just needing a little inspiration, here is a sheet full of appetizer ideas. Usually, they are going to be shared and everyone will just get a little bit to start the meal. Things like bread baskets and chips and salsa can also be counted as appetizers.
PDF Examples of Entreés   --  Entreés are the main dish part of the meal. This sheet might inspire you and give you some ideas. Depending on the kind of restaurant you want to have, a hamburger or other sandwich could be an entreé. Most entreés are designed to be eaten by just one person, although some restaurants might serve several of them "family style" to share.
PDF Examples of Desserts   --  Most of us probably don't need examples of desserts! However, if you are looking for inspiration for something a little bit deferent from cookies or ice cream, you can check here.
PDF Examples for Specialty Beverages   --  A specialty beverage is one that requires part or all of it to be made in the restaurant. Coca-Cola? Not a specialty drink. Fresh squeezed mango lemonade? Yep- that's a specialty drink! Think about shakes, smoothies, horchatas (look it up! then try it-mmmm), agua fresca, floats, and slushies are examples of the kind of drinks we are looking for. You could also think winter- cocoa and cider could also count!
