We made home-made waffles this weekend, and M likes a little powdered sugar on hers. (Oh, and the melon was on sale so we enjoyed fresh melon again! Nothing like $5.99 melons to get you to eat more seasonally!)
It was a mess with the big sieve, so I came up with using the little spring-loaded mesh tea dispenser (you know, it looks like two tiny sieves clamped together.) I put about a teaspoon or so of powdered sugar in it and she had fun tapping it over her waffles. It looked so pretty and was less messy, and we had more control than with the big sieve.
Can you think of other things you could sprinkle with this? Kids seem to LOVE sprinkling things Sometimes my picky clients will try apple-sauce or yogurt if they can sprinkle something on. M loves apple slices with cinnamon. We had a tea party with a little friend, and the girls had apple-slices with cinnamon and barely touched the other options.
