first time making jam! what's even better? it's made with fresh strawberries picked by little bb!! the strawberries were quite big and sweet.... however, on our way back that day, most of them were smashed by little bb.... and so were the blueberries i brought along for the outing... then, i thought of making jam out of them.... as it was my first time making jam, i read about jam making and came across one recipe which calls for a bit of orange peel to make the mixed berry jam less sweet... i prefer jam with chunky pieces of fruits so, instead of crushing all the berries, i left some in bigger pieces and so, here comes our first homemade jam! chunky strawberry + blueberry + orange peel jam! we are loving it!
when brownie goes on hunger strike (our boy likes to go on hunger strike every now and then), little bb goes, "brownie 食 mum mum 啦!" (brownie, eat your food!) when little bb is given big pieces / chunk of food / snack, he goes, "wah, 好大舊!" (what a big piece!) followed by "wah, 好味 yummy!" when i talk on the phone, he goes, "mami 做乜嘢 gae?" (what are you doing mani?) "唔好講嘢啦!" (don't talk!) and he tries to take my phone away.... some nights ago, i was talking to our nanny about little bb's potty training, we used a very soft voice as we didn't want little bb to hear us, while we were whispering, little bb said in a loud voice, "mami auntie 做乜嘢 gae????" and in a very nosy manner..... we all paused and laughed out loud.
a strawberry picking trip with school mates..... we probably got the least strawberries as little bb has special taste.... he kept picking the small and green baby strawberries and i have to keep telling him to leave the poor babies alone.... it is a work hard and play hard day today from early in the morning (ard 7:30am) till late at night (ard 11:30pm)
