advent calendar 2015 - day 5 and day 6
Sorry for the little delay, but I could take photos of yesterday's activity this morning only (because of darkness).
On Saturday, the activity was baking a puff pastry (chocolate/hazelnut spread) christmas tree. It was easy, didn't require much at all, and well, that was a hit !
I had found the idea on Pinterest, and the recipe (well, just a few simple steps) can be found here. I'm sure you can adapt with jam or with savory spreads like pesto or tapenade, which can be such a great idea for the holidays meals !!! The photo above is minus the icing sugar we put afterwards, like on the remnants (from cutting a tree shape inside a circle), like below :
The remnants were eaten right away (well, after cooling off), and the tree itself was eaten yesterday for breakfast.
Yesterday's activity was bulding a cardboard "gingerbread style" house for Pitou our cat. I had saved many cardboard pieces, I had the tape & acrylic paint, so it basically cost me nothing. (yay) And Pitout loved it !
I hope you've had a lovely weekend, dear ladies (and gentlemen ?). Thank you for stopping by today !
