After my discussion with my hubby and the warm responses I get from you all. I have straighten my thoughts and will no longer wonder anymore if anyone is really utilising those tried and tested recipes that I shared here or whether my effort in putting up them up will be useful for others.
He told me that since it is my way of “giving back” what I learnt, I should just do it. As to whether my effort is utilized or not, it doesn’t matter.
So thanks all for giving me your views. I felt so much better now that I get some directions.
I hope from my experiences in the kitchen, you can find inspiration.
As a mother, draw strengths from my parenthood journey and I from yours.
God bless you all.
Now let me tell you about our very exciting Youth Day.
During our breakfast date last week, JM suggested we do a baking session for the kids. It was a perfect time for the proposal as the following Monday was Youth Day and it will be good for the kids to have something to do.
I was a little apprehensive about giving lesson not to the 9 years olds but rather to 2 years old. After all I had done before for primary school level kids.
I didn’t want a classic chocolate muffin as I wanted to do another batch of buckwheat cookies with chocolate chip. Yes it is that good that I wanted JM and AL to try it as well.
Since the cookies have chocolate chip, I thought it will be a good idea to have savoury muffins instead. After all, I have never done a savoury muffin before!!! Or have I?
Unfortunately, no time to take any pictures of the process. So here is our effort, Peanut Butter Muffins and the Buckwheat Butter Cookies with Chocolate Chips (I think this is my 4th time baking these, so you can guess how crazy I am over these by now).
The session went through so smoothly even though I have a two years old involved. I even have time to cook a simple lunch of Fried Udon for my guests.
I could see how the little one enjoyed the lesson. Also was good for the older kids as they learnt Maths in a fun manner.
I was pretty disappointed with the appearance of the muffin as it has a very flat top to it. Doesn't even look like a muffin. I was afraid that it was dense but surprisingly, it wasn't!
In fact, AL who doesn’t really fancy peanut butter, actually likes it!
After the session and lunch, the girls continue to paint, done some skipping as well as hula.
By then, time to say good byes as the little two years old was totally drained.
I truly enjoyed the afternoon with the ladies and the girls and my little princess too.
