Today we took what we learned yesterday and put it to good use…baking apple pie!! It was not nearly so glamorous as these pictures make it appear. It was messy, Liam (2) wants to do everything and nothing at the same time, Emerson (4) follows directions very well but gets ahead of himself and Miss Norah (7 months) is on the sidelines throwing in the spice. We learned how to chop, measure, mix and work with dough (with handwriting and math while the dough chilled) we also got to learn what a plunger is and how that works as Emerson tried to take care of business himself while I nursed the baby. It was interesting for sure…some days are better than others in this home school adventure! Here is the recipe I used Dream Book Design I found that the dough really needed to chill more like 30 minutes (maybe because I had hot little toddler hands helping?) it held up and baked much better after longer chilling. They were quite tasty! Our hats consist of paper towels, paper and tape.
Chef in training! Keepin’ it real with the #homedepot aprons
Good chopping for a four year old
Liam said “Mama I not your fran (friend) he did not want his picture taken, no wait “I DOOOO!”
My friend Sarah and I made pesto this morning! We used Pioneer Woman’s recipe you can find it here talk about YUM! I can’t wait to try homemade pizza and all things pesto!
Silly boys! Liam said “I say cheeeze!”
These day’s my life revolves more around feeding children and paperwork than painting. I enjoyed doing the cake even though I did have a time with it, baking and decorating cakes rattles my nerves a bit. It’s not too shabby considering it broke in half when I was putting it together, but it tasted good and that’s all that really matters :)
