Books to Eat is a series of Mondays in our school library where kids/families create a book inspired something to eat. In the past, entries have ranged from incredibly complicated cakes to very simple.People have brought in a single pea to celebrate the book Little Pea, people have also brought in cakes longer than a meter of a realistic dragon for Lord of the Rings. The creativity and delicious is off the charts.
Blake and I are keen participants. We think and plan all year and sometimes put in 2,3 or 4 cakes a year. This year we were out of town for two of the three weeks (disappointing, but worth it) so he and I each made an entry for the first day only.
Blake (with a little help from Scott) – The Secret Keepers
It’s made of Rice Krispies wrapped around a can of soda. He later baked brownies as a base with some blue glass candy around it to look like waves.
Me – If You Give A Dog a Donut
One rainy evening we booked a cooking class and, as luck would have it, it was just the three of us.
We made green curry – my absolute favourite!! We made two other dishes too, and they were all delicious, but man oh man, I love me some thai green chicken curry.
We brought home this mortar and pestle to bring home as a souvenir. Haven’t used it yet, but maybe some day……
Here are a ton of photos from an incredible day in the trees with my two favourite people.
This was Blake’s first time on the ‘real’ course. He no longer needs to go on the junior course if he doesn’t want to. We did have a play in the junior nets before we left, though.
Grit, courage and determination were on display all day. Also, sweat, mosquitos and, at times, exhaustion, but it was all worth it.
There was kind of one road into our beach and one road out. That meant any time we went anywhere we passed the same stuff, including this Upside Down House. It proved to irresistible and we eventually stopped and checked it out.
In addition to the house, there was a small escape room and a cool hedge maze. A pretty great roadside attraction!
