My old chum Sarah is half Dutch. At the start of each school term I looked forward to whatever exotic comestibles she’d bring back from visits to her motherland. I remember fondly stroopwaffels, chocolate letters given at Sinterklaas and a thick and rather moreish pea and frankfurter soup (opinion was divided on the latter)…
These are very quick to make and are a bit more fun than doling out handfuls of sweets to each and every gremlin and ghoul that haunts your doorstep this evening. Visit the Party Times to see how I made them. Happy Halloween.
I searched in vain for a mobile for Little Pea that wouldn’t be too in her face/cost a small fortune and inspired by her granny’s superior effort over the summer (see below), I eventually decided to try making one. This yielded mixed results – I am not sure I saved much money and it certainly looks homemade – but she loves it, so thats enough for me.
A big impact for relatively little outlay, these are blousey, easy to make and they last. Tie small ones to string and garland your house.
How is it that someone we have only known for four and a half months can give so much happiness? I am so, so pleased to be able to say that. And to finally believe it.
