Happy Mother’s Day Mommies!

 Hi everyone! How are you all doing? I hope everything is going well. Thank you for all your lovely comments on my last post. Sorry I’ve been away for so long, I’ve been trying to deal with some personal business. Add motherhood into the mix and blogging just had to take a back seat. I promise to try to make it around to all your blogs as soon as I can, but today I’d like to take the time to wish all these wonderful blogger moms a very Happy Mother’s Day! In no particular order of course:

I’m sorry if I’ve missed anybody, you’ll have to forgive me as I’ve got lots on my mind right now.

Instead of sharing a food recipe with you this week, I’d like to share a playdough recipe. I got this recipe from K’s school and I’ve already made 2 batches of playdough for my kiddies. They love playing with playdough.

You can somewhat tell from this picture how big a batch of playdough this recipe makes (enough to fit into that yogurt container).

Playdough recipe:

  • 2 c flour
  • 1 c salt
  • 4 tsp cream of tartar
  • 2 c water
  • 4 tbsp oil
  • 2 tsp food colouring (1or 2 packages of unsweetened Koolaid can be substituted for food colouring)

 Combine two cups flour, 1 cup salt and 4 teaspoons cream of tartar in a lagre saucepan. Gradually stir in 2 cups water with 4 tablespoons oil and food colouring. Cook over medium to high heat, stirring constantly until a ball forms. Remove from heat, cool and knead until smooth on wax paper. Store in an airtight container.

Note: Cream of tartar is a white powdery substance. Please DO NOT confuse it with tartar sauce!

Looky here, my very first Mother’s Day gift that K made for me in school 😀 😀 :-D.

I don’t have a green thumb so I’m hoping to keep this plant alive for as long as I can. Hopefully that’ll be more than a week.

These words melt my heart everytime. When she gets older and starts wanting more expensive stuff, I’m going to be in a lot of trouble ;-).

Mothering has been the toughest job I’ve ever had by far, but definitely the most rewarding as well. I’m off to spend quality time with my babies.

Wishing all the wonderful moms out there a very Happy Mother’s Day from luvtoeat – momoirs of a food enthusiast. Until next time, friends and family :-D.
