We had been out to pick it whilst we were waiting for the cupcakes to finish baking in the oven. D was a great help, breaking the eggs into the mix and then fishing the bits of broken shell out of the yolk! She decided that we shouldn’t tell anyone about the shell until they had finished eating the cake, hmmm. Then it was time to lick the bowl. When I showed her the fabulous scraper that collects every last little bit of cake mix her eyes widened with astonishment and she sat on the edge of the bench and enjoyed every last bit! Later they were all put in a bag to take home to share with Mummy and her sister.
She then went outside to cook the sausages on the barbecue with Poppy. She loves to cook and for five years old is pretty smart too.
So, I have another zucchini selected to allow it to grow to a spectacular size, for next week.
