Gradually though, people left or died and there weren't so many people available for making cups of tea. The task of making morning teas after the Sunday service and for the Wednesday playgroup fell to me and I am still wondering how it happened.
Winter has finally arrived in Sydney and this (Wednesday) morning I thought a some nice warm cheese toasties would be good for the little ones. There was a slight wobble in the plan because I couldn't be bothered taking my sandwich grill from home but then I mentioned the idea to the co-ordinator and she enthusiastically went off and found an electric fry pan. After that, I was kinda obliged......
I bought colby cheese, my favourite for toasties, cut it thick and managed to transform some uninspiring bread into 20 golden, oozing little sandwiches.
The kids loved it and the parents were happy because I had pretty much covered lunch for them. One grandma wrapped up the two left over sandwiches for her grandson to have later and confided that if he didn't want it her husband would!
The tiny people were loaded into their carriages with full tummies and hopefully dropped off to sleep on the way home. I call that a success.
When I was looking for a photo to use in this post I came across cheese toastie dippers, if I feel inspired I might make them next week.
