Some lovely food again this weekend.
Steve has made more wholemeal bread. Not as good looking this time but just as tasty. He got up early on Saturday morning to bake it so we had it warm from the oven with melting butter with our morning coffee. Mmmmm.
Rufus and I had been to the library last week and I had managed to pick up a few new cook books to have a look at. We used the first one today. It is called Little Kitchen by Sabrina Parrini. It is Australian and looks like it was only published in 2009 so quite new. It is a lovely book especially for cooking with children. Laid out very well with photographs of a completed version of every single recipe as well as other fun or stylish photos.
I see they have a website and sell baking equipment in Australia - Little Kitchen
So, for lunch today, we decided to go for the Crunchy Chicken Fingers. We had some Ruskoline in the cupboard so we used that instead of making our own breadcrumbs and we just served them with peas.
Adam did most of this himself and I was impressed at what a neat job he made of it. He is getting really good at cracking eggs into a bowl and there was no shell in the egg at all. I think I usually underestimate what a 3 year old can actually achieve.
Because it's the tattie holidays, Adam will not have pre-school for the next two weeks so this will give us more time to do loads of cooking and baking. There are a few recipes in this book that we have our eye on - can't wait to get cracking!
