We had such a lovely day with the little ones – 17 in all with a few keen-beans as young as 3 and one tiny tot helping! Every single one got stuck in to the grating, the spinning, snipping with the scissors, podding the broad beans – and then podding them again!

I perhaps over-estimated what we could all do in the time we had… luckily I had some FANTASTIC mums who jumped right in, at the ready, and helped all our wee ones have a ball of a time… next time ladies, I will simplify it a bit – and will definitely get into the garden early on to avoid the scorching heat! (who’d a thunk it feeling the chilly weather today?!) But we got it all done and some absolutely dee-licious food on the table.

It just makes me so happy to see these wee sprites getting in to it, and concentrating to get their jobs done – so many of them know all the herb names and can use kitchen equipment well… we have to thank shows such as masterchef for continuing to spread the good message about cooking!

So now what happens? Back to school for term 4! I’m greedily compiling the menu for the next few weeks… globe artichokes, asparagus, beetroot… watch this space for some spring motivation!!! Meanwhile the last word on this post goes to this little poppet… don’t you just want to stuff her in a  sandwich and gobble her up, shoes ‘n all?!!!
