Today I found the answer to lifting myself out of a funk....baking with the half naked baby. It's sure to bring a smile to anyones face.

I'd decided to make some dough up, so the girls could make calzones. I love that word, you can't help but put on an italian accent...calzzzzzzone! Sienna wanted to help with the dough, so she poured, and mixed and then really went to town with the kneading. She is so adorable.

After she was done, I put it into the cupboard to rise. It always fascinates me when you pull it out an hour later and it's twice the size. Sienna was astounded too.
Then the girls all washed their hands and got down to making some calzones.
Kneading the Dough

Shaping and rolling the dough, I seriously need some more rollers, world war three almost broke out. Then it was in with the fillings. Just cheese for the little peeps, the big girls had tomato, onion and capsicum as well.

Then they had to fold the top over and press the edges together.
Making the Calzones

Into the oven for 20mins and then it was the good part!

Scrumptious! Love the last collage of photos with the end results - both on the plate and being consumed. Mmmm, I think I need some extra supper before bed now.... x

The Word Party

Loving words clutch crimson roses,
Rude words sniff and pick their noses,
Sly words come dressed as foxes,
Short words stand on cardboard boxes,
Common words tell jokes and gabble,
Complicated words play Scrabble,
Swear words stamp around and shout,
Hard words stare eachother out,
Foreign words look lost and shrug,
Careless words trip on the rug,
Long words slouch with stooping shoulders,
Code words carry secret folders,
Silly words flick rubber bands,
Hyphenated words hold hands,
Strong words show off, bending metal,
Sweet words call each other 'petal',
Small words yawn and suck their thumbs,
Till at last the morning comes,
Kind words give out farewell posies....
Snap! The dictionary closes.
