A Week Off

Monday 1 July 2013

I haven't blogged for over a week, due illness, DIY, starting my crafty business (*coming soon*) and just any spare time spending it with the family. It seems that we don't get that much time together, so on sunny days it is great to get outdoors and enjoy those precious moments. But since midweek, the bug got the better of me and by Friday I was no use to anyone.

Thankfully, I am on the mend and wanted to share with you our favourite family craft from the last seven days...

It is enough cooking with a little one, so I am including her in what we do. We fold clothes, peg out washing and now cook. Sometimes it is hard and messy but always fun and she loves it (she doesn't cry, so I take it she loves it!)

We make shortbread which is great fun, quick and easy. Mixing the ingredients together, watching me and then playing with the dough! I gave Little L some food colouring to try and make some patterns with and some currents to add, cover, coat - whatever!

The mixing and colour changes really kept her concentration. The rolling pin was substituted for a tin foil inner but she copied me and we made biscuits.

I hope this is just the start of our cookery adventure together and we can eat home cooked food too.

I really want to show her where our food comes from, how we grow it, mix it, bake it and then eat.

I have just been in the garden and the raspberries are ready to be picked so any recipes for these would be greatly received..
