Things that I like today..
Yes, it's a follow up to my negative rant yesterday.
1. My favourite shoot - above - in Paris for Country Living magazine. Ten days in Paris, all expenses paid, what's not to like! C'est Superb!
2. Karalee for sharing her daughters horrible doctors visit - but found the other patients that were ahead of her were kind and let her go first. There are good people, they are simply at another other clinic!
3. My brother in law 'Mr.Fun' we call him. He came down from work to get my daughter to take her medicine and now her temperature is down for the first time today.
4. That Lily ate these cheese crackers that I made her today (below shot). She hasn't eaten since yesterday afternoon, and she ate a whole heart.
These are very tasty and kids love them. Actually adults love them just as much. They are full of cheese and butter, but when they are warm from the oven, damn tasty.
1/2 pound cheese
5 tablespoons butter
1 cup flour
Grate the cheese and put into a food processor. Add flour and butter then whiz till it comes together in a dough ball.
Roll out dough, cut out shapes of choice with cookie cutters. This is where it's fun for kids- they can chomp off animals limbs or make a garden out of the flower shapes.
Bake in oven at 400 for 10 minutes. Check them at 8 minutes as your dough may be thinner than mine, which means they will cook faster. Don't let them get to brown.
