yesterday Evald turned seven which means summer is over and a new year can begin. we started the day like we always do on birthdays, waking him up with hot chocolate and freshly baked buns in bed. part of this ritual is for the birthday child to lay awake and listen to the preparation sounds from the kitchen, and then to pretend still to be asleep when the door opens and the singing starts. we had a wonderful day. gifts, cakes, guests and ice cream. the best birthday ever, Evald claims.
frozen banana popsicles:
just cut the bananas in twos and put the pieces on to the sticks. then cover them with chocolate and shredded coconut, one side at the time. put them in a box and freeze for three or four hours. they both smell and taste wonderful and are quite healthy too. got to love them.
