Art and Cooking

In addition to the usual round of daily tasks, both kids had fun in the kitchen.  Benedict made some yummy Glamorgan sausages with salad for lunch and Pip made healthy nut and banana flapjack for after tea:

Pip also  enjoyed her impromptu art session this morning.  We used the Usborne art skills book as our guide, the instructions were clear and concise and each project page contained a list of necessary art supplies:

    1. Glamorgan sausages are vegetarian and they are essentially a mix of grated cheese, breadcrumbs, grated onion and seasonings bound with eggs and cream. You can form them into a sausage or pattie shape and then fry them in the pan. They are great with salad or cooked veg, roast potatoes and gravy.

    2. Ah, we have a similar German recipe, but without the cheese and cream.

  5. San, I love how your kids cook and bake! I did not get my two younger ones doing that as much when they were young (now of course they do All the cooking!) and wish i had.
