Sundays in my City #73 – Baking with the Boy

28 Aug

Unknown Mami

The weather is improving and the sun has been shining, the perfect opportunity to get out and about right?  Wrong.  I spent yesterday in front of the laptop, surrounded by journal articles that needed to be read and hopefully understood.  Today, I attempted to continue my reading, but out in the sunshine and promptly fell asleep!  I figured that no study was going to happen, it was time to do something else.

Since we had a class get-together to attend, boy-child and I decided to make some snacks to share with friends.  What started out as a simple idea soon became much more colourful.  We started out with my favourite kid friendly and delicious recipe 100’s of Biscuits, the same recipe that girl-child followed back here, but this time we did a little experimentation.

Green Cookie Dough

Green was pretty spectacular, as was the red!

Ruby Red and Pop Rocks

 We had fun decorating them too, and eating them of course!

Good enough to eat!

His hands ARE clean, just stained from the different food colourings used!

The cookies were taken to the picnic this afternoon and were a treat.  They were devoured in minutes.  Even the parent folk were happy to give them a try and a nod of approval!  Boy-child enjoyed his kitchen experiments and I enjoyed spending the time with him having some fun.  Having used food colouring, toffee and chocolate chips along with popping candy, I wonder what secret ingredients he will want to use next time?

Head over to Unknown Mami and check out some of the adventures others have had during their Sundays in my City.

    I love that you gave him free reign to choose his own secret ingredients. So often we spend our time in the kitchen with our children warning them about HOT ovens, SHARP knives, HEALTHY food, its good to let them loose and challenge them a little! I am inspired to do some baking today with my littlies!
