Paddy Cake, paddy cake...
Inspired by a little friend's baking adventure, Gus and I broke out the bisquit dough, some chocolate chips and a sprinkle of cinnamon sugar this afternoon. The setup was simple. Flatten out the bisquits (while singing songs like "Paddy Cake", sprinkle sugar on it, stick chocolate chips in there and roll them up.
Needless to say the snack started while we were still making the snack. Gus also requested salami, so we added ham instead (no chocolate chips on those, he did sprinkle some sugar on them...a gourmet chef in the making!)
This is me trying to capture what almost always happens when we try a new food. I ask "Is it yummy or yucky?" and Gus answers "Yummy!!!!" (as in this case) or "Yuckeeee!!!" (as is often the case with anything green, fried, breaded or otherwise dubious looking to a 4 year old).
Gus digging in. He ate the two with ham first, then ate another two with chocolate chips. It's 4:30 in the afternoon. I fear dinner will be a small occasion. At least we are saving a few "yummy rolls" for Daddy.
