By the time we had gotten back to Moscow, Brian had only 3 weeks left of his Breadmaking Elective. When school reopened last week after a one-week break, his new elective was Computer Graphics (Forensics was oversubscribed).
These were from his last two breadmaking sessions. This first nasty-looking one is Quick Winter Herb Bread. Brian is such a fan of his own bakes :) He gobbled this up cos no one else would have it. The ingredients include Basil, Oregano, Thyme, Honey, Buttermilk, Nuts, Raisins and Marjoram, whatever that may be.
Now this one I like. It's Bliny, it's like the national pancake. Both Brian and I gobbled this up real quick.
Now, seeing that Brian loved his own baking so much, I signed Sean up for Cooking after-school activity (which he was keen on too), hoping he might also start to learn to try new food that he prepared himself. Yesterday was the first day of Cooking. Brian and I met Sean after the activity and he handed us a container which held 3 star-shaped cookies with strawberry-cream fillings.
When I asked Sean if he'd like to eat the cookie, he said No, I don't like the filling. The cookies were really yummy, Brian and I chomped up one and a half cookie each. Even seeing how much we were savouring the cookies couldn't persuade Sean to just try some.
Failed experiment --should have signed him up for Basketball!
