The Carnival.......a project by Mitchell & Amie

My middle son, Mitchell is in his Senior year at High School and studying Hospitality as a subject. He is already studying to be a baker through a school based apprenticeship. Mitchell teamed up with his friend Amie and together they had to create a table centre piece focusing on sweet food for part of their assessment for this year.

They chose the theme "Carnival". 

Persian Fairy Floss - yum

Funny little clowns

Two stands full of fun cupcakes..........

Popcorn and bunting...........

A wonderful carnival centrepiece.  I am so proud of them.  All the hard work paid off.  Not bad for two 17 year olds.

Another weekend...........

Another weekend has disappeared.  Not fair.  I would like it to go for at least another two days I think.

It's Eistedfodd time of year, which adds more to an already busy life.  It is lovely though to see the children perform.  Another night to go tomorrow night. 

In between kids and washing and groceries and food I had a busy time in the garden this weekend.

10 punnets of foxgloves together with some other assorted lovelies and 320 bulbs were planted.  Oh my aching back!  But, so worth it for the beautiful Spring garden I will have.  A couple more weeks and we will plant up some pots. 

The vege patch is quite lovely at the moment with cabbage, beetroot, broccli, cauliflower, lettuce, spring onions, assorted herbs, spinach and some late tomatoes (which are very slow in ripening).

I really enjoyed preparing some yummy food today, quiche for lunch made with eggs, spring onion, parsely and tomatoes all from our own garden! 

Pizza for tea - I love making yeast raised pizza dough - it was delicious too. 

I can't believe it is Sunday night already - that weekend passed all too quickly.

Oh to have some more time to potter in my garden.
