It was a good thing that Jenny requested blueberry muffins for breakfast on my vacation day, because we forgot to run the dishwasher and were almost out of silverware. Elena was a big help, but mostly she liked cleaning up the batter.
The previous evening, Elena helped us bake snickerdoodles for a Memorial Day picnic. I didn’t get any photos; my hands were too sugary–Jenny made the dough, then I rolled it into balls and helped Elena coat them in cinnamon sugar. She liked shaking the sugar bowl more than rolling the dough around. Our cookies were a mere sideshow at the desert picnic. A cupcake contest took center stage–there were some serious entries.
