As a kid, my favourite day on the weekend was what I called “cookfest”. Basically my family would spend the day cooking… spaghetti sauce, lasagna, chili, muffins, cookies and bread. To this day, my favourite food remains a slice of warm bread, fresh from the oven slathered with butter. Hmmmm, comfort food.
The other day, my mom made bread and asked Ella if she’d like to help. And she did. She helped measure ingredients, watched as it mixed and even made her own little loaf. She watched it go into the oven and got to help take it out. She’s a kid after my own heart because as soon as it was out, she asked for a slice. In the end, she had three warm slices with butter. It made me smile!
Then we headed home and Ella decided that she needed just a little more before bed. It’s definitely her loaf of bread now 🙂
It really is the little things in life that make it so sweet!
