Baking 101

Ruby likes to 'shop' in the pantry. For some reason I had a ziplock with muffin mix in it and she got it out and dumped it on the floor. Ruby puts everything in her mouth, to the point that I don't ever worry about her choking on anything. She filled her cup with the muffin mix and started to eat it. She proceeded to gag on the flour and I had to get her water to rinse it down.

Erik was cleaning up Ruby's mess rather relunctly but he got good practice writing his letters in the flour on the floor.

Here is Ruby with the muffin mix paste on her face. The funny thing is that the other day we were at Isobell's house and Ruby was eating the flour off of the table where we were rolling out pizza crust. Isobell watched Ruby for a while then decided to try the flour since Ruby was enjoying it so much. Isobell put some in her mouth and immediately turned around and started spitting, she gave Ruby a look like what is so great about this stuff and Ruby looked at her and said,"Yummy"
To each his own.

I love the following Recipe and have found it helps give me some energy later in the day.
