I'm hoping that the weather improves today so me and Lili can venture out.  Yesterday it rained all day so we had a movie afternoon where we made popcorn holders and then she picked a DVD to watch - Alvin and the chipmunks!!.  After that we did some baking. We started with Jammy Buns taken from The diary of a frugal family blog.  Really easy for children and cost very little.  As you can tell i let lili make the buns - not too bad for a 4 year old!!

Then we made homemade pizza and i let her roll out her base and then put all her toppings on.  Now don't start getting a vision of me being a domestic goddess when i talk about making my own pizza bases.   I have a breadmaker that does it all for you (sorry to break the illusion :-).  If you don't have one i would so recommend getting one.  I have used my constantly since getting it last year and everything tastes so much nicer and you know whats in it.  Pizza dough only takes 45 minutes to do so you can decide at the last minute that you want to make it.  I usually cook half of the dough and freeze for another time as it does a big batch.  Tear and share bread is also devine.

  1. Those look yummy. I used to have a bread maker, but wore it out. Apparently they're not meant to be used 3 or 4 times a week!
