Fresh Market and Play Dough

I have missed blogging for a few days. Our laptop has been crazy lately! That's what technology does sometimes, right?  On a good note, sweet Faith redesigned my blog look! Thank you, Faith for everything! Love it!
Earlier this Summer, I posted about The Fresh Market opening soon.
 It is NOW Open!!! I met Amy, Debbie, and Leighann there. The first thousand customers got a few freebies and then, of course, we browsed around!
 Everyone was so very excited! Including me, obviously!

 Yes, I know these pics are blurry, but I just couldn't help but post them. Too pretty!

 Flowers, anyone?
 I love the whole store, but of course, my favorite part of the new store is the specialty cheeses they have. Mascarpone cheese, cheese with cranberries, New York Cheddar, and of course, brie. Heaven.
 Leighann enjoyed riding in the little buggy. So funny!
 Fresh produce

Wednesday afternoon, Leighann came over for a little while. We watched Disney movies, read fun books and made play-dough!
 We wanted to share the recipe with you! It is fun to make an fairly cheap, too.

Homemade Playdough

2 cups flour
2 cups water
2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
1 Tbsp. cream of tartar
1 cup salt

Leighann says:
 Mid all ingredients together in a large saucepan. Remember to measure!
 Stir well, then let an adult mix over very low heat.
 Keep stirring, and eventually it should form into one ball.
 After it forms in a single mass, let cool slightly, then knead on cutting board.
 Leighann even liked "kneading" the dough!
Form into four balls. Help the kids make a large thumbprint in each ball.
Carefully use food coloring to make any color you want. Just drop a few drops in "thumbprint".
Mix color in with dough until color forms.
You're all finished!
We made pink, blue, yellow and green play dough.
Kids love doing this. It's always fun! Tada!!

Whatever you do, do everything for the glory of God. 1 Corinthians 10:31
