Getting sick of photos by this stage...the fake smile is starting to creep in
At the end of her big day just relaxing on the steps at school.
Initially there wasn't much chatting when Kayla came home, just taking it all in I think. But now I have heard the whole story about her day. From what I can gather, she had a fabulous time at school and she loves Mr Munroe her teacher. They have a few class rules which she said are "very important", and her lunch was apparently very yummy. It was a very exciting day for Kayla, and one that I have dreaded for a long time, but I think we all came through it with a smile on our face.
Also today I have another Make it on Monday installment. Today I thought we would have a cooking lesson. This is a recipe for Savoury muffins from the Day to Day Cookery book that I tried yesterday.
4 bacon rashers, chopped
2 shallots chopped
2 cups self raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
½ cup grated cheese
1 cup corn kernels
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 ½ tbsp margarine, melted
1 cup milk
1. Place bacon and shallots in a small pan.
2. Cook over medium heat until bacon is cooked but not hard. Allow to cool
3. Sift flour into a bowl
4. Add bacon, cheese and corn and mix
5. Make a well in the centre and pour in egg, margarine and milk and mix well
6. Spoon mixture into 12 well-greased muffin pans, filling then two-thirds full
7. Bake in a hot oven (200 to 220 degrees Celsius) for approximately 20 minutes.
And here are my muffins
Th The little ones are for the girls lunches, and the big ones are for our lunches. For the mini muffins I put them in the oven for about 12 minutes. I think next time I will add some carrot as well. These muffins were well received by the family, so I think they will become a regular item in their lunch boxes. They freeze well also, which I love. Yummy!!
