My Life with S

A Snapshot From Our Weekend 2015-10-20

We had a late, lazy weekend; S was very impressed with herself, having gotten dressed before me on both days!

 I had promised her the nightbefore that when we got up, we would do some mixing. She didn’t let me forget, so we set about making some Christmas mincemeat.

 S was really into the weighing part, and watching the numbers creep up!

The mincemeat, ready to rest for 12 hours in the corner. I think S was a little disappointed in how boring and inedible it would be – and the lack of cake!
apples
While we were making mincemeat our friend Sam brought us some apples from the tree in her garden. S was very excited by this; she thinks Sam lives on a farm because the last two times we’ve seen her, she’s taken us to a farm.

Since there was no munching to be done with our morning of cookery, and we had a lot of apples ot use up, we made apple cake. It was a bit tricky to stir, on account of all the apples – but S gave it a good shot.

Of course, the best part of baking any cake is the part where the bowl needs cleaning… shortly after this, she had her head in the bowl.

Here’s our finished cake. It was a bit lush.

    Love making my own mince meat and the best part of cooking is always licking the bowl clean. #Pointshoot

    The apple cake looks delicious! We had a quiet weekend too as I wasn't very well. Sometimes it's nice to stay in the house in PJs! Popping over from #PointShoot Baby Isabella recently posted...My Autumn MandalaMy Profile

    Oh she is so cute and what a fab learning experience. I can't believe you make your own mincemeat I bet it is so much more delicious! Rose is always super chuffed with herself when she gets dressed before anyone else :) Thanks so much for linking up to #PointShoot (I am standing in for Em this week!) x Amy @ Mr and Mrs T Plus Three recently posted...Imagine the possibilities with BarbieMy Profile

      Thanks Amy. The mincemeat is really easy and great for children to join in with; S is really chuffed with the jars on the side now!
