MTM – weather!

on July 27, 2009
We’ve had a lot of hot weather and thunderstorms recently, including the largest hailstones we have ever had, I think. (nothing like what you get in America of course, but still the size of large marbles).

So here is our tin – I think these ideas were my own but I’ve seen so many other tins that maybe I have been inspired elsewhere and forgotten it. If you’ve done a weather tin let me know and I’ll link to you! and don’t forget to click here to see what everyone else did this week.

Pickled onion hailstones, yellow nasturtium-sun in blue banana-yoghurt sky, bread and marmite thunderclouds and yellow pepper lightning, white bread/cheese/marmite cumulus cloud. Served on upside down lasagna tray for thunder noise!

Froglet absolutely loved playing with this meal.

Look Mummy, the thunderclouds have arrived…
*bangs them together while making thundery growling noises*
I’m going to dip it in here to make blue thunderclouds. Why are you writing down what I said? … what’s a blog?

The great thing about pickled onion hailstones is they accurately portray what a hailstone looks like inside as well as outside! Marmite is British yeast extract (Aussies and Kiwis also have it but theirs is slightly different).

We can take the flag out later and stick it in the muddy ground where the plants are growing.
*When asked what for:* For fun! And to show that it’s windy.
The hailstones are dropping out of the thunderclouds…
bang! It went in the sun!… bang! It went in the blue sky!

We were meant to have snow too, but I hadn’t had chance to make it so we had it as a snack later instead:

Chocolate and coconut snowman, strawberries hidden under cream snowclouds.

Look Mummy, I made an eye and a nose for the snowman.

    That is SO CUTE!!!

  4. This is GREAT! I love the thunderclouds… what a wonderful idea!

    I don't know about anyone else in America, but we don't get anything bigger than a pea for the most part when it comes to hail. I think your storm sounds pretty spectacular! Stay safe and dry!

  10. SUCH A GREAT JOB! I absolutely love your theme!!!! I am having a hard time choosing my favorite!

    and the part where your son says “mommy why are you writing down what I said…what's a blog?”

    on occasion, I have gotten “why are you always taking pictures of what we eat?”
