The Gingerbread Man

One day a little old lady made a gingerbread man
and put him in the oven to bake
When the oven door was opened out jumped the Gingerbread Man!

When they got to the other side of the river
the fox opened his mouth and ‘snap’
that was the end of the Gingerbread Man

{isn’t it fun using toys to tell stories!}

Happy storytime, 


The other day, while Little Miss Q slept…
Dino Boy and I baked *smile*

Gingerbread… he decided
And so we got the ingredients ready for him to make the dough

30 g butter
60 g brown sugar
4 tbsp golden syrup
pinch salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 cup flour
cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and cayenne pepper to taste

These days I can step back…
…and let him do much of the baking himself…
{and he loves that he can}

So he melted the butter, sugar and syrup before adding the dry ingredients *smile*
Then worked it until is was a good dough, before rolling it out and cutting his shapes!

We enjoyed our afternoon tea at our Toadstool Nook
Eating up shooting stars and angry cats *wink*

And isn’t there something lovely…
…about drinking homemade lemonade from a jar *smile* 

Surrounded by beautiful blooming poppies!

Gush ~ my little man makes me smile
Happy days,
