(Mini) Greedy Bird Baking Enterprise: Afghans
"Everybody's favourite", according to the ever reliable Mary Berry. They will certainly become one of our favourites. We made these to take with us to the Stephs this afternoon. Usually I have to insist that Steph keep any of the baked goodies we come bearing and then she always shares out whatever's left so that we bring some home too. Not so today. Today she casually inquired if they could keep them all. Damn damn damn. We shall have to make some more.
Actually that's fine, because they're really quite fun and very easy to make. Firstly there's the crushing of the cornflakes.
Then there's the eating of the cornflakes.
Then there's the rolling up into little balls.
And after everything's done, the final prize and raison d'être of the whole operation: the licking of the spoon.
Matilda starts requesting spoon-licking privileges shortly after the first ingredient has been fetched from the cupboard.
Then it was off to the Stephs for a ramble in the glorious Winter sunshine.
Owen found a rock.
It was a good day.
