The Little Red Hen

This little Golden Book was one of my favourites when I was little, I enjoyed reading it with Noah last weekend when we visited a cafe and they had it on the kids table... The repetition is perfect for little readers. The illustrations are fantastic, I must find this book to add to our collection.

Unfortunately I don't get to be the Little Red Hen these days because I have two very willing little hands. Hands that want to get into the butter (and thinking it's cheese), stir the just-sifted flour, and pour all the ingredients in at the wrong time..

Regardless, these bickies that I read so much about this week have just come out of the oven.. And the word on the street is, they're darn good!
Nothing says Friday wind-down to me like a quick afternoon baking session and a cup of tea in my favourite tea-mug..

Wasn't that Little red Hen a matyr anyway? Just kidding, good book recommendation. Mmmmm, baking is good for the soul isn't it. Although eating it is better.
