Busy days and good naps
The cubby house is a fantastic box our new dishwasher came in and has been sitting on our verandah waiting for the right moment. We now have the two armed house, curtains and all. Sadly only enough room inside for one little one at a time and the whole house has to be lifted up to gain entry! Glad I am that we don't have to do that with our house!! Thank goodness for doors!!
The 7 yr old grandson and almost 4 granddaughter formed their own pizzas. After all her hard work come dinnertime a little voice said "I don't like pizza'. It was such a good recipe for the pizza base thanks to 'Phyllis at allrecipes.com.au....
1tbsp dried yeast
1cup warm water [45deg]
315 bread flour
2tbsp olive oil
2tsps caster sugar
in a small bowl dissolve yeast in warm water, stand until creamy...10 mins
large bowl place flour oil salt sugar and yeast mixture. Stir well, beat until stiff dough. Cover and let rise, until double, about 30 mins. Oven 180deg. Dough on floured surface and roll into pizza shape. Place fillings on and bake about 20 min.
The base really was great, very light.
Last night we had a friend to stay with her baby, 2 weeks older than Lulu. The two girls were really fascinated with each other. Our visitor came with dinner for us, a real treasure.
Off to a nap now, see you all soon! Aubrey
