Sugar and food colouring are evil!

By PaisleyJade - Wednesday, July 02, 2008

I know - I am a shocking mother... we went a bit overboard with food colouring and sugar yesterday and today!

While Symon and Master 9 went out for special time last night (to see Prince Caspian at the movies), I stayed home and had some special time with Master 6. We were going to watch a dvd together with popcorn, when he pulled out his latest cook book from the library and showed me how to make coloured popcorn. Pretty simple really, just food colouring and honey... so we decided to give it a go. It was easy and very tasty (maybe a tad sickly!).

Today we continued the food colouring overdose when I succumbed to Miss 4's pleads for "real cupcakes". The colour of the icing looked amazing... and scary as I thought about the aftermath of hyper-active children to follow.

I think we will have a vegetable and fruit focus for the rest of our week!
