Cloud Dough Mayhem

We take crafts and invitation to play activities very serious in our house. So when the littles are bored and I’m just about ready to pull my hair out, this activity saves the day.

What you’ll need:

  • 8 cups of flour
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • Wooden spoon or potato masher
  • Powdered tempura paint (optional)

Combine flour and oil in a large bowl. add the paint powder if you have your heart set on color.

Mix everything using a potato masher or wooden spoon until the dough feels smooth. Voila! Dispense to your little army!

I should note that if you decide to put a pile of this stuff on the high chair table rather than in a contain which is what I usually do, protect the floor under the high chair and your sanity with a drop cloth or mess table cloth.

I finally got around to writing the recipe down.  Hope your littles enjoy them just as much as mine do!

 

Pea Fritters

Ingredients

3 cups of frozen peas (convenience is a must!)

2 eggs

2 Tbsp Veggamo Milk Alternative

1 ¼ cups All Purpose flour

2 Tbsp ground flax seed

1 green onion, chopped

1/3 cup of Parmesan cheese

2 Tbsp chopped spinach ( I use the baby salad spinach)

Oil for frying (I like to use Ghee mixed with coconut oil)

 

Boil the peas until cooked, about 4-5 minutes, Drain.

In a food processor, add half the peas, flour, eggs and green onion and blend until just combined.

Add the remaining peas, Parmesan and spinach.

In a large fry pan, heat the oil.  Using a Tbsp, drop the mixture in the hot oil.  Cook until each side is golden and crispy looking, about 2-3 minutes per side.  Transfer the hot fritters to a paper towel lined plate to drain and cool.  Serve warm, yum!
