Hey folks, how’s it going?
What are you all up to this November weekend?
I’m giving wife a day off, today. She does a lot of things and she doesn’t drive, so she has to walk everywhere. Usually fully laden with a stubborn, verbose 3-year-old and a loud, heavy 21-month-old. And she’s a weary lady and deserves a day off.
Suits me. I’ll just drive over to sandma and grandad’s (yes, that’s sandma, not a type-o. My mum is called Sandra)… You never know, they might want a trip to the garden centre with us. Of course, they’ll see right through my mixed motives of wanting an extra pair of hands, but they won’t mind – especially if I splash out on a coffee… Not that I don’t enjoy the kids. They are always easy for me – novelty factor I suppose. But it can’t hurt to have an extra body or two who can run after the boy while we’re ogling the pets. Girl child asked for fish for her birthday you see, so that’s what we’re going to look at. Suits me. I want pet fish, too. Little does she know this will be a mutually enjoyed birthday present 😉 . Don’t judge me. It’s not like I’m not going to do all the work, anyway…
Ok, ok, I’ve teased you with my weekend adventure story long enough. Here’s the soda bread recipe: http://www.eatingwell.com/recipe/262572/easy-gluten-free-irish-soda-bread/
I baked it in my large black cast iron skillet and all! FYI: I didn’t have any buttermilk. But if you mix in a couple of tablespoons of lemon juice into regular milk and let it sit for a few minutes before using, it has the same effect. Just search the net for buttermilk substitutes if you like, there are a few different ones out there.
Hmm, nothing about craft yet, is there?
I know, how about you all let me know about your experiences crafting with children. My little girl loves to make a card. She’s a bit of a free thinker and won’t always play by the rules, but if you have any tips for craft projects with little ones, let me know in the comments. And tell me which Clarity products you’ve used. If I get enough feedback, I might have a little idea for another blog post…
Over and out!
