Cooking, Crafting, and Fall Fun

Our week was a busy one! We had our church’s annual Fall Revival on Sunday-Wednesday and it was great. Lots of driving and late nights for us, but worth it for the wonderful sermons and fellowship with our church family.

Sadie has been extra interested in helping me cook and bake lately and I’m not complaining! I’m using her curiosity to teach her simple recipes before baby comes next month. Here’s what we’ve been preparing, cooking, and baking together:

-Cutting fruit with the knife in this set
-Scrambled eggs
-Crescent rolls
Vegetable and bean soup
-Feeding the pets (we even cooked some beef liver for Niva as a treat!)
-Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches
-No bake kids cookies (PB + oats + honey + banana + chocolate chips + chia seeds)

It’s certainly not easy, less messy, or fast to have a little one at my side in the kitchen but I absolutely love those moments together and I think it’s so important to teach her as much as I can in the kitchen.

Lots of crafting has been happening around here as well. Between crafts at home and the weekly drop-in art class we go to, we’re craft making machines.

As for the fall fun in the title of this post, Sadie and I visited another local farm! If anyone is local to Pittsburgh, we went to Trax Farms last week and this week we visited Soergel Orchards.

Sadie really enjoyed checking out the animals at Soergel’s, and there was a pretty large play area with wooden structures that she was all over (literally!). It was a fun little morning trip for us. I’m trying to squeeze in lots of one-on-one fun time with Sader Tot before we’re cooped up in the newborn haze come November.
