Super Sausage Rolls


Lately Master 2 requests that I sing his stories to him at bed time and one of his favourite is, There were 10 in the Bed. So today I planned some activities around that rhyme and we got busy, perfect as it was another rainy day! The boy's and I decided to make sausage rolls for lunch. I'm always looking for cooking activities that allow both Master 2 and Master 4 to be a part of. Home-made sausage rolls are a winner in our house, not just because of the fun we have making them, but they taste good too! I use a very basic recipe as that way both boys can really be part of the process.
Ingredients
1 large carrot, peeled, grated
1 small brown onion, finely chopped
beef mince
sausage meat
2 cups fresh breadcrumbs
puff pastry, thawed
1 egg
1/2 jar Baxter's tomato relish
1/2 cup soy sauce
sesame seeds, to garnish
tomato or BBQ sauce, to serve

Encouraging children to cook is great for creating healthy eating habits while improving self confidence and self esteem




While our yummy sausage rolls were cooking Master 2 and Master 4 enjoyed using some rollers I picked up from the discount store and did some painting.










There were ten in a bed
and the little one said
"Roll over, roll over"
So they all rolled over and one fell out.
