My usually ravenous four year old has almost no appetite at the moment. I guess swarms of angry looking pox marching across your face will do that. I baked his favourite muffins today to try and coax him into eating something. Happily it worked. How could it not?
100g melted butter beaten together with 1/2 cup of raw organic sugar and a large soup of natural yogurt. Then in with 2 eggs and 2 cups of flour. Today I used one cup of plain flour and one cup of ground almonds (figured if it was going to be all he ate today we’d at least get some nuts in for protein… but then he somehow found some space for a little ice-cream this evening so turns out he was doing quite well on the protein front!). 1 tsp baking powder. A cup of frozen raspberries / blueberries and a few chocolate chunks.
The smell of baking certainly makes a pleasant change from the rather overpowering aroma of pine-tassel / calamine that’s been dominant around these parts of late.
