except when I have to walk in it!! and apparently there might be flash flooding in low lying areas tomorrow - well atleast it is the rain we have been praying for - It hasn't rained not even once since summer.
So while Gabrielle napped a long time due to the darkness outside and warmth of her bed....
I made ~
Pumpkin and Ricotta Canelloni for dinner...
Finger Paint~ See Creative Kids for recipes
1/2 cup cornstarch
3 Tbsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
2 cups cold water
In a medium pan, mix all the ingredients together to make the finger paint. Cook over low heat 10 to 15 minutes. Keep stirring the finger paint mixture until it is smooth and thick. After the finger paint has thickened take the pan off the stove and let the mixture cool.
After cooling, divide the finger paint into storage containers depending on how many colors you would like. Add a few drops of food coloring to each container. Stir the coloring in to the paint to determine the shade of color. You're ready to finger paint! Cover tightly when storing.
