Then we read about pancakes and Shrove Tuesday in our lovely Hawthorn Press book Festivals, Family and Food and Hannah wrote about pancake day in her journal.
I love that she drew herself carrying about 100 pancakes, she really likes them!
Then we decided to make a treat for the birds, We made some seed cakes to put on the bird tables in the morning by melting lard and mixing bird seed into it, then we poured it into little cake tins to set.
|Hannah diced the lard and added it to the bowl|
|then melted it over a saucepan of water and added the seed.|
|she pressed the mixture into the tins|
|and left them to set!|
|Lots of Daffodils are coming up now|
It was a really good day despite Hannah feeling under the weather!
