It was Shaina's night to help with supper tonight. We made a new recipe. (Click here)
I really liked it, it turned out to be an even split down the middle For and Against!
Maryn, Julie, Shaina and I loved it. Max, Dallin, and Mark weren't"wowed" and Sam doesn't eat anything unless it is coated in sugar!
It definitely looked good!
Sous Chef Shaina did all the chopping and grating and stirring. She was a great help and It was fun to work together!
Here are a couple shots of Sam's fun with his play dough this afternoon!
Honestly, I would never not have play dough at my house! It is hours of independent play time!
Sam doesn't do play dough the typical "roll balls and build snowmen" sort of way. It is usually just a prop in his never ending imaginary Star Wars/Marvel Hero escapades! I really need to video him sometime, he gets right into it and some of the stuff that he comes up with is just hilarious! I Love play dough!!
Here is my recipe for any one brave enough to try it!!
- 5 cups flour
- 1 cup salt
- 1 Tbsp. cream of tarter ( nice but not necessary)
- 4 pkgs. Koolaid! (gives it a nice smell and color of course)
- Mix all together in a large bowl
- 4 cups of boiling water
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
- Pour oil into boiling water and then pour all on top of the flour mixture. Mix it together until it is incorporated then let it cool. When it is cool enough to handle, knead it until it is smooth. I do all of this last part right in the bowl. (you'll need a big bowl)
