Saturday Sandwich 15: Ice Cream Sandwich & Last Month

The Sandwich book were using has a section of sweet sandwiches (I'm not looking forward to the rose petal sandwich :() so this week we decided to try one of them. Unsurprisingly the kids were interested in trying the Saturday Sandwich this week (part timers!) so it was a family affair. Also, thanks to my wonderful husband I've got a new camera to take the pictures with. ^_^

Ingredients: cookies, ice cream

Sandwich some ice cream between two cookies. The book also says you can add any sauces or sprinkles you like. We used treacle since it's all we had in the cupboard. It's sometimes a bit bleak just before shopping day!

They were really good. I've never had ice cream between cookies before and it was a lot nicer than I expected. We chose soft chewy cookies which made them easy to eat. The ice cream started to get a bit sloppy after the first few sandwiches though and made a drippy mess (especially under Leigh's sandwich). It was a nice treat I can see us having again.

Ratings: JD - 3/5 Emma - 3/5 Leigh - 4/5 Erin - 4.5/5

Last month we tried to work on spending more one-on-one time with the kids. With us moving house it was difficult to keep it up all month due to packing and house-hunting. But towards the start of the month it was great. JD and I took turns setting a 'date' with each of the kids to do something fun. Leigh took advantage of this opportunity to get me to go clothes shopping with her in Harrogate (I'm not a fan of shopping). JD and Erin played video games and visited KFC. Me and Erin had a spa session and gave each other makeovers and pedicures. Also Leigh and I shared music by taking it in turns to choose music videos on Youtube to watch. JD and Leigh went for a walk

Finding time to spend individual time with each of the kids is tricky most of the time (sorry for the overuse of the word 'time' in this sentence). We spend a lot of time as a family but one-on-one time has to be scheduled to make it work. It's something I'd like us to carry on with though as the kids do each have different interests. Having all of our attention seems to be something they enjoy.
