Homemade winders

With the blackberries we had collected we made Fruit winders.

You need:
500g blackberries
500g cooking apples
150g honey
juice from 1 lemon
Greaseproof paper

(1) Peel, core and chop the apples. Put them in a saucepan with the blackberries and lemon juice. Simmer until they have turned into a pulp.
(2) Sieve the fruit to create a smooth puree. Then add the honey and stir well.
(3) Divide the mixture between 2 lined baking sheets, spreading it out evenly and thinly.
(4) Cook on the lowest setting until the fruit has dried out and comes off the paper easily - this took several hours.
(5) Cut into strips.

muffin pizzas

 Today for supper we made Muffin pizzas.

I cut muffins in half and fried some mushrooms. The girls chopped some pepper, halved baby tomatoes and olives and ripped up Mozzarella. 

They then spread their muffins with tomato purée and a bit of ketchup and then added their toppings. We then cooked them under the grill for about 5 minutes.

Blackberry picking

We walked along the roman road (the linton side of the All) where there are lots and lots of brambles and enjoyed the warm sun and picked blackberries where we all got stung and pricked and ate far more than we picked!

Things to do in August Review

  • Enjoy P's birthday
P had a great birthday. She had holiday gym club and then in the evening we went to 5 Guys (where it is all about the drinks machine!) and then went bowling. She got some binoculars, a watch, some lego and some colouring pencils.

  • Make sure the girls carry on with reading etc 
I really needed to hear them read aloud, but I failed!  They all read to themselves but I think P especially would have benefited from me hearing her! 
  • Go on holiday!
We had a fab time in Cornwall and our Featherdown Farm Stay was a prefect as I thought it would be!  We loved walking, the beach and coming home and watching the Olympics.
