Here are a few phone snapshots of our day. We were having too much fun to even think about pulling out the camera until after Lulu went to bed. And all this stuff happened after spending hours at the playground and beach in this amazing spring weather. Today was truly one of those really, really good days. I love my little family. And I love my life.
There was painting….
Lulu knows her Dandelions and her Tulips and her Daffodils, so I think she had flowers on her mind, hence the garden painting.
Then I made play dough from a recipe from An Everyday Story and it turned out great! Lulu made cookies with tea, and pancakes, and it looks like meatballs with tomato sauce!
Then I made some very yummy vegan cookies from a recipe I found on Oh She Glows but with a couple of modifications. I chopped up the toasted walnuts in my coffee grinder because I don’t have a food processor, and it worked quite well. I would caution if you’re going to try this, to put just a little in at a time, and you’re golden.
The other thing i did was replace the raisins in the recipe with chocolate chips. Nobody in my family cares for raisins unless they come in the little boxes all by themselves. And everybody in my family loves chocolate, so it was a no brainer. Um, so now that I think about it, these are not vegan cookies anymore, because of the chocolate…..
It was my first time using Sucanat, and I have to say I think it works well! And Lulu loved her cookie tonight, which means they are for sure good. She has been known to leave partially eaten cookies laying around the house if she’s not too keen on them, especially the vegan ones I make with bananas. The one tonight fell on the floor and she just about lost her marbles. MY COOKIE!!! Oh my lord, get that cookie to that girl immediately! I take that as success!
Thank you for letting me share our really, really good day with you. I hope you had the very same kind of day. And if not today, there’s always tomorrow!
