In the kitchen last week.

Madi made four desserts last week. After the pavlova, we attempted profiteroles, which ended up pancakerolls (frowns), but tasted scrummy neverless if the fact that there were no leftovers is anything to go by! Maybe the homemade caramel sauce helped.

Then we broke out the chocolate and made Rachael Rays Black and White Parfait, which was Rogers fave.

(The oreos were our idea )

Finally she turned her hand to Chocolate Pistachio kisses, from Jo Seagars cookbook.

These were SO cute, and though the Mr found them a little chocolatey, they were a BIG hit with the girls.
Madi had fun in the kitchen, but she was happy enough to go back to her books :)

YUM! Those chocolate pistachio kisses have been a huge hit amongst my family & friends for years, I remember seeing Jo Seagar make them way back when she had her TV show, and I've been making them ever since. Looks like Madi has some pretty mad baking skills!! :-)

P.S. Happy 10th Birthday to Kyla - what an AWESOME idea to let her do the freefall for her birthday!! You are the coolest mum EVER!

Oh what fun! Madi is turning into quite the sweets chef! Pretty soon, Hay, you'll be able to sit back with a cocktail and a book, and your girls can take care of all the cooking for you!

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.
