We have seen the first signs of spring here in Amsterdam, but still, they say it’s going to be the coldest week so far this winter. So a good time to celebrate a bit of outdoor coldness for this new The Little Things post!
We got together with three families in our team member Nina’s gorgeous country house and had a wonderful morning making bread dough and wrapping it around sticks, while the dads were preparing a fire in the garden. Making the dough was easy and sooo much fun!
We used a basic bread recipe:
We were with 10 children, so you can definitely use half the amounts if you are with a smaller group. You can add some sugar and cinnamon to make the bread slightly sweet, but we were planning to fill the bread with sausages later so preferred them to be more savoury.
You need some good sticks to wrap the bread around. So time for a little search outside for some cool sticks! (Or, in our case, just collect them from the stick collection in the basket outside our front door.)
PS – This is the newest post in a series which is called ‘The Little Things’. Thank you Maud Fontein for taking these beautiful photos and thank you Nina for letting us use your beautiful house and garden! The children are wearing clothes from Babaà, Omibia, Mabo, Dotty Dungarees, and La Coqueta.
