Not much time to blog these days. M and J are sick. Not just stuffy-nose sick. I'm talking, fever, vomitting, coughing, stuffy-nose sick. Strangely, D and I are fine though neither of us got much sleep last night. M is better than J - at least he has more energy and is forever wanting to chase after her. During those times, I find playdough is a Godsend! Whether you like to make your own or prefer to buy it, trust me: IT IS A LIFESAVER. (We often break open our playdough when J takes her first nap in the morning.)
If only playdough could cure chest colds...
1 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
2 Tbsp cream of tartar
1 Tbsp veg oil
1 cup water
Mix first 4 ingredients together. Dissolve food colouring in water. Add water to mixture and combine well. Cook on medium heat, stirring constantly, for 3-5 minutes. (Dough will form clump.) Remove and knead by hand for 5 minutes. Keep in airtight container or ziploc bag.
