Baking for Fun
Ella received a baking set from Grandma Barbara and Grandpa Jim for her birthday. I know she was excited about it, but I was almost more excited to actually make some dough so she could try out her rolling pin, cookie cutters, pastry wheel, pans, and oven mitt. (The oven mitt was the most special element of all!)
So I made up some pie crust dough, and Ella had a blast playing with it, and eating it, doing the real stuff like mama. Now I realize I need to make her an apron, so the flour won't get all over her clothes. Shhhh, don't tell her that she's getting a play kitchen for her birthday from us. Then she won't have to deal with us barring her from the real oven, when she wants to put her pan in there...
