Yesterday was a bit of a shock seeing all those entries for Barbara's A Taste of Yellow. I'm sorry for the outpouring of emotion. I'm fast learning that the food blogging community consists of some very lovely people. It swept me off my feet for a while last night as I began reading all the entries.
I did say I'd think of a joke for today... So a child friendly one that also happens to be yellow....
What's yellow and dangerous? Shark infested custard... I know, I know. It came out of a cracker last Christmas.
Another... "Knock, Knock." "Who's there?" "Boo!" "Boo who?" "Don't cry, it's only a joke."
Anyway today is another day. Boys are still unwell. We'll have roast chicken and vitamin packed, health boosting veggies and by tomorrow they will be well. We're also going to bake. I've wanted to make Freya' s bagels all week but the boys have been too unwell. Don't get me wrong I love to cook by myself or with others. It's just I don't want to make bread by myself as I'm a bit afraid of anything bread like, I normally fail miserably. Unless of course it's flat bread and I'm an expert at that, whether it was meant to be flat bread or not. I leave the bread making to H, who likes making it with the boys at the weekend. I'll show him Freya's post, I'm sure we'll have freshly baked bagels before the week is out.
A picture of one of the marzipan muffins we did for A Taste of Yellow as it reminds me of a beautiful day, and it's yellow, and yellow is beautiful. Marzipan Muffins - eat them, get fat, feel happy! I'll post pics of the baking we do today later on... (and there they are bottom right.)

We made homemade lemonade with brown sugar. I threw the used lemons, along with lots of garlic in with the chicken to roast and we've eaten well, including the spider if he indulged in the chives.. Click on the picture to see him properly.
