Kitchen helpersBecause she is growing up before my eyes, I'm making a more conscious effort to include Miss S in my kitchen activities.
This was my view across the kitchen bench this morning:

I was hoping to be able to share a recipe for soaked banana bread with you today, but I'm just not having any luck with it. A lovely reader sent me the recipe and I've tried to make it twice now, but it just doesn't seem to work for me in my funny oven.
Never mind. I had fun baking with my girls all the same. I also discovered that they both love eating pieces of frozen banana. It was like ice cream to them - they couldn't get enough. New healthy snack up my sleeve - check!
Mung beansThis week I nominated Miss L as our mung bean manager.
Every morning and evening she helps me water our mung beans and drain the water off again. We take a close look at the mung beans each time, to see how much they've sprouted.
It's made her more willing to eat mung beans too, which is great as sometimes I worry she doesn't eat enough vegetables. (What parent doesn't?)

Mini gardenersWe've had splashes of good weather lately so I finally tackled the weeds in my garden.
It's been nice having the girls around for this too. They're not as much trouble as I thought they would be, in fact Miss L is downright helpful. And Miss S especially seems to love copying whatever Mummy does.

So that's how life looks around here at the moment. What's happening in your neck of the woods?
