Lately Miss G. has become more and more inquisitive in the kitchen.
Each time I pull out the mixing bowl she quickly scampers into the kitchen and uses the cupboard handles to pull herself up in order to peer up and take a peak at what’s happening on the kitchen bench.
Her excitement melts my heart.
With a gorgeous little helper by my side cooking seems fresh and new again. I love showing her how to bake a cake, prepare a sandwich or cook a little pasta. Watching her face light up with excited amazement as we stir together something delicious to eat is pure joy.
Today my lovely little helper assisted me to prepare a loaf of banana blueberry bread.
But I do have to admit most of her ‘assisting’ consisted of eating the majority of the blueberries, she loves them. The few blueberries that were lucky enough to make it into the bowl bled beautifully turning the batter a gorgeous shade of rippled blue and Miss G. giggled as she watched the batter change shades.
In lieu of the missing blueberries I decided to add a little mashed banana to the batter as well. The results were delicious.
For morning tea Miss G. and I sat on our regular balcony spot and enjoyed a couple of slithers of the blueberry banana bread.
