Every one was getting peckish, so Prudence and I decided we would have a bake off.
"The scone challenge."
At least we felt that it would fill them all up after the cooking was done.
Of course.... always, there are many hands all wanting to help at the same time.
"let me wind the handle." "Don't bump I will get flour on my fur."
"I don't like grating, I might take my skin off."
Well I could see they needed to learn a few lessons.
"OK guys listen here"
"We can have fun cooking with out fighting and being jealous that some one has a better job than you. We need team work."
With out every ones help the scones won't happen.
Boof was getting a little too close to the sifter, and got flour all over his face.
Then they all started to giggle.
Prissy Pink was doing a very good job of stirring. We did this outside in front of our huts, because the morning was so lovely.
Prudence had a team and so did I. We were going to see who was the winner.
The bears decided we needed to make a different scone so it would stand out as the BEST.
We made Petite Orange scones that had a glaze of orange on top.
Boof said, " was he petite...."."I'm afraid not Boof" Tiny is petite..."
"Well if I am not petite could I have several scones."
They came out of the oven looking good. Every one wanted to smell and taste them.
Another lesson in Patience.....
"DON'T touch it, because it is hot and would burn your fingers."
"You all have to wait until they are cold and we put the glaze on."
It was so yummy that every one thought theirs the best.
Prudence's kids made great scones and they liked them the best.
We thought ours had more class, so it was a good lesson in telling them. we all like different tastes and different things, so it meant every one was a winner.
They all had a great morning tea, and their tummies were very full.
PS.... Granny has the best recipe book, although to see it it looks a bit worn.
She tells me it has recipes from her Gran, mother and loads of friends.
That is why she loves cooking. It reminds her of friends that are not near her any more.
Ahrrrr... lovely sunshine, full tummies and happy campers, what more could we want.
We are all having the best time.
These scones are for you, my lovely followers.
Have a taste they are what Prudence made.
My thought for the day.
"I can do things you cannot,
you can do things I can not;
together we can do great things."
