My ten year old has become interested in cooking this summer. He asks to help with chores in the kitchen, browses through cookbooks, and uses his tv time to watch the food network. Yesterday he peeled and sliced apples for pie. When he was done we realized that...
the peaches were not looking so fresh so Ezra decided to cut those up for a peach pie. Then he suggested that we throw in a stalk of rhubarb to "add some acidity." Maybe he's been watching too much food network? I don't think so because halfway though our slicing my son informed me that "cooking and talking with you is so much fun." Just goes to show that cooking is all about spending time with family, whether it be making or eating. So with the help of some store bought crusts, we baked off two yummy fruit pies.
And then we reaped the rewards.
And speaking of rewards, I received this package from the UK yesterday. Last Monday was our 17th wedding anniversary and I may have mentioned that I have yet to knit a Hanne Falkenberg kit. To make it seem more like a surprise gift, I let my hubbie place the order and choose from the three patterns I was interested in. After very little consideration he picked the Mermaid jacket in this blue and white colorway. I love it and can't can't wait to begin.
But first, I have a nature walk to finish - and super cool moth eggs to observe!
