Yesterday my Mom came round to do some Chinese cooking with the kids.
Not only did she come laden with bags of ingredients, but she also bought the kids an acorn bird feeder and a bird table!
Today they were working with an electric wok and cooking in stock rather than oil.
In went the stock from the Chinese shop.
Everyone got chopping
And there were lots of new smells and flavours to try. Here Kiki is tasting some bamboo
They got to use their bowls that they picked out in Chinatown too.It got very steamy.
They got to eat with the chopsticks too. See, the chopsticks don't just get used for cake testing or as sticks for the toffee apples :P
After they ate their Chinese feast for lunch, off they went to the garden centre to get an apple tree.
Before Gran left, Champ wanted to put together the bird table.
And soon everyone was joining in.
yay! I think that we might have to move it from this position as it is quite exposed but at least it is up! Lets hope we get some birds on it and not just squirrels.
