This morning I got myself up an hour early in order to accommodate the baking needs of my daughters for their class potluck lunch. There’s really not a lot to be said nor were there a lot of ingredients used but isn’t this what a daddy does? To go the extra five miles and help his children out? Certainly all daddies are like this. I know I am.
The idea was to bring non-junk and non-warmed up items. Lindsey wanted to do a cheese and crackers platter, and Lexis’s choice was bannock. I wanted the bannock to be fresh as it’s the only way to eat it, hence getting up at the crack of dawn or slightly thereafter. Bannock only contains five ingredients but it definitely takes time to pull off the entire process. I was a floury, oily mess but it all turned out well.
And what is there to be said about serving up cheese and crackers? It’s just a step above pouring cereal into a bowl. I arranged them just so and feared the formation would explode on the ride to school. I’m pleased to announce it didn’t. All in all, it was a success and the feeding was apparently pretty delightful. It felt good to be there for my girls when they needed me. That never goes away.
