Day on the beach

We had so beautiful day today, that we decided to spent some time on the beach.

Dom took his bucket and spade, he wanted to build sandcastles :)

Sky was almost totally blue...

I spent little bit of time looking for sea glass - not much luck today, but saw lots of interesting pebbles and shells.

Dom was digging holes with his spade, asking Daddy for water to pour in there and I was working on sandcastle, which we finished together decorating it with stones and shells.

Then we went to Coastline restaurant for hot chocolate, cake and ice creams :) After sweet treat we back to the beach where we could observe high tide. 

Our sandcastle was already gone under waves, but Dom still could dig some more holes and back home with lots of sand in his shoes :)

That's all for today friends!
Till next post!

Chocolate cookies for Dom

Today before I walk my son to school I promised him cookies. Had crazy, bit hectic day, but... my son have his cookies  😊.

After school he checked them and... wanted more then just one allowed before dinner 😊.

Want to make them?

Here recipe (I modified recipe found in 'Cookies!' by Pippa Cuthbert and Lindley Cameron Wilson):
250 g dark chocolate (70% min), 60 g cocoa powder, 100 g unsalted butter, 3 eggs, 100 g soft brown sugar, 2 tsp vanilla extract, 75 g plain flour, 1/4 tsp baking powder.

Place chocolate, butter and cocoa powder in metal bowl and place over a pan of simmering water and stir occasionally until melted, set aside to cool. Beat eggs, sugar and vanilla extract until nicely combined, add chocolate mixture, mix, add flour and baking powder and mix until just combined. Cover the dough and chill (2-3 hours). Preheat oven to 200 C. Roll dough quickly into small balls, place on baking sheets and bake about 10 minutes. 
Allow to cool and enjoy 😊.

Till next post!
