The pig & chick...

~ Breakfast Time ~

Playtime n story telling sessions are integral
part of the vacations. I always feel nothing
is better than reading out a good story to the
kid , short educative ones are not only a great
pastime but also a wonderful aid to build values
n teach them uncountable life skills. My little one
tremendously enjoyed the 'Little Pig n the Chick '
story that I read out yesterday. The story revolves
around a cute little chick n a piglet who try to mimic
the birds without actually realizing that they are
much different to the winged creatures.....

Story on my plate

Half fried egg , peppercorns ,olives, red pepper , tomato sauce n lettuce

Tip- Large metallic cookie cutters are a great way to make cute
shaped fried omelets/ pancakes. Place a cutter on a skillet n pour the
the egg/batter .Cook till done. Decorate n serve.

Father's Day

~ Happy Fathers Day ~

Little Food Junction wishes all the Fathers round the
globe a very Happy Fathers Day .

The breezy morning today is filled with an enchanting
smell of lavender n citrus, my little one has sprayed her
dad's (actually her own) favorite room sprays all over
the house. Days ahead she had been planning for some
celebrations. My little cook wanted to prepare breakfast
for papa(since its fathers day mommy is allowed to help
in the kitchen..lols)- We've fixed up some shirt/tuxedo
sandwiches to add to the merriment of the occasion.
A tiny little fruity no cook dessert is chilling in the
refrigerator to follow .....

Shirts for Breakfast

Brown bread , cheese, tomato sauce & garden fresh salad.

Chill Time

Homemade Mango Jelly in recycled pet bottle moulds
(lil one's idea -after using similar moulds for creating
fancy sand flowers at the sand pit)

Quick Fruit Jelly recipe - Ingredients- 1 cup thick mango
pulp ,1-2 tsp powder sugar (adjust according to the
sweetness of mango), 1/2 tsp vegan gelatin , cherries
to garnish.

Method- Blend the powder sugar with pulp and
keep aside. Soak gelatin in a 1tbsp of normal water
for 2 mins. Dissolve gelatin on a double boiler & add
to the mango pulp till well incorporated. Pour into
moulds & cover with a cling wrap. Refrigerate
for 5-6 hrs. Unmold & garnish with a cherry.
