After breakfast (pancakes) we went down to the garden because Meema said the zucchini needed to be picked for goodness sake before they got too big. I took Dolly but I put Baby in Meema's basket. She said NO when I wanted to put in some other friends and some good rocks I found on the porch.
I am much quicker than Meema.
The zucchini were there all right and we picked four. One was giant-sized and Meema said she would cut it up and put it in the chicken bucket for the chickens.
There were some nice little ones and Meema sliced up and cooked one for my lunch. She said I was probably too little to eat zucchini but I did, some of it. I also had cheesy noodles (penne, not farfalle this time,) and some little tomatoes that I picked.
I can fit a lot of my finger puppets on this car.
They like to go for a ride.
Then I made oatmeal for everyone on my stove.
Later Meema and I made play dough from a recipe Miss Beth gave us. I helped put in the ingredients and helped stir. When it was all cooked and had cooled down, I kneaded it. This is an important part of the cooking.
I showed Meema how to make cookies. It is a little tricky. You roll and roll and roll a little ball and then you smash it down flat. After you smash it, you turn it over and it is all smooth.
We made lots and lots of cookies and Meema got pretty good at it.
Later we went outside and I watered my scarlet runner beans and Meema's plants too. Plants have to have water, just like people.
I will be back up on Wednesday and it will be Family Dinner Up. Wednesday is my favorite.
