Our second weekend in a row with nothing planned. I only mention it because it is such a rare thing...for it to happen two weeks in a row is miraculous.
Daddy went out for a ride on the bikes with both boys, then had to ring me to come and collect Pumpkin. After getting up at a record breaking 5.30am he had worn himself out and was not prepared to ride home. He dutifully fell asleep on the sofa for an hour after lunch.
Pumpkin spotted some plums in the fruit bowl the other day and declared he wanted to make a plum tart so today we got to it! We made sweet pastry and then rolled it out and filled it with plums and an apple and some sugar, glazed it and baked it. Hey Presto!
I also had a go at making a new recipe for cereal bars (not quite as successful) but it meant that I had two egg whites to use and Bean had been asking how to make meringues so just before he went to bed we whisked them up, added the required sugar and popped them in the oven for the night.
