Baking Buns

Today my granddaughter and I baked buns. We had not done this in quite a while and I was thrilled that she wanted to help.

Kai did a great job of forming the buns. The ones she made were much more interesting than what I made. Hers had unique shapes.
Kai decided to try some colored buns. This was a new experience but in the end the pink ones tasted just as good as the others.
Looking at the buns I made,I must admit they look rather boring compared to the ones Kai made.
We had a great time making memories,

So lovely to see you had a chance to share the kitchen with Kai again. She is such an endearing little girl and I, for one, have had great pleasure from seeing her 'growing up' now and again. My own grandchildren are all grown up so it is doubly nice to see over your shoulder.

What a marvelous way to spend a day. I would gladly taste one of your 'boring' buns, but I'll bet Kai's were as delicious as they looked as well.

Ruth - how sweet of you to pass the art of making your own dough and baking buns on to you grand-daughter Kai !!! You know Ruth - I can just picture your Mom (my Aunt Annie) with her sweet smile, looking on very approvingly! She would be VERY PROUD of you!

Debbie said...

They look like bakery quality Ruth! I'll bet they are yummy, especially warm with pumpkin butter!!

Kia made a great choice for October and breast cancer awareness month!!

Have a happy Sunday!!

I love that you permitted Kai to exercise her own creativity instead of insisting that she do it the way "we've always done it."

It's fun cooking with the granddaughters! Your buns looks yummy. Are they sweet or more like a dinner roll?

What a wonderful day you had!!!! And I bet her pink ones tasted lots better than the plain ones! Gosh, how did you get yours formed so perfectly?

Sandra said...

memories are the most important thing of a childs life, and you are making great ones... she is so cute with all that concentration to make them just right... colored buns maybe come a fad now

There is nothing better than sharing time and making memories with a granddaughter.

Life is all about the memories! That's terrific that you bake with your granddaughter.

What wonderful fun! I always loved cooking/baking with my kids and grand kids. They suddenly get to an age when they want to go off and do other things, then eventually come back and stand around in the kitchen to talk about the good old days when we worked together in the kitchen. Timeless memories!

Ruth, Mmmm, I can smell and taste those delicious buns from here!
Isn't having grandchildren such a treat!!

What a great time! I remember Mom letting me form buns. I have also watched (on YouTube) young Jewish children making Challah. Bread, to me, is a living thing ... well until it is baked. I love the rising process and how the texture of the dough changes. I regularly make my own bread now. Store stuff doesn't hold a candle to home made!

Elaine said...

Making memories is one of the best things you can give your grandchildren. I love her pink buns! She came close to matching the color of her shirt!

EG CameraGirl said...

You must be a super grandmother, easy to get along with, and that's why Kai wanted to help. :)
