Week 2 – Making Rocky Road
Ellis is at that age when he wants to do everything for himself, or he wants to do everything you are doing! So I thought Ellis could do most of the Rocky Road himself, and he did! I think he especially liked bashing the biscuits with the rolling pin, oh and cleaning out the bowl!
Ellis loves being in the kitchen and seeing what is going on. He wants to help chop vegetables, pour pasta in a sauce pan, butter toast, make a cup of tea, basically anything and everything myself or my husband are doing. At least it is training him while he’s young! If we are not actually doing any cooking, he wants his hands in the sink playing with water – usually making a mess! I love seeing him interested in everything, we really do take everything for granted when we get older. I wonder when he won’t be fascinated about what an egg is anymore, or even turning a block of cheese into grated cheese all with the use of a cheese grater! It seems simple and obvious to us, but to someone so young, it’s all new and a novelty.
It’s times like these when I wonder what he’ll grow up to be…a chef maybe? Or an engineer, you can always see his brain working away, figuring everything out, or possibly a professional mountain bike rider? I think his Daddy would like that one!
Really looking forward to seeing what we get up to in Week 3, hope the weather improves so we can get outside. I think the garden could do with a bit of work although not sure what Ellis would make of that, it might be another indoor activity!
