Per­fect par­fait for mum

Central and North Burnett Times - - LIFE - with Mag­gie Cooper

AS IF you could for­get, it’s Mother’s Day to­mor­row so here’s an easy recipe so you can make your mum a spe­cial break­fast. There are a few sim­ple rules to fol­low in the kitchen to make sure you don’t hurt your­self if you’re a child.

First of all, it’s al­ways wise to ask per­mis­sion, and be care­ful with knives and hot stoves.

Next most im­por­tant thing when­ever you are cook­ing is to wash your hands well, with plenty of soap. If you touch your hair, nose or the fam­ily pet while you’re cook­ing you should wash your hands again.

Read the recipe thor­oughly and make sure you un­der­stand it. Then gather all the in­gre­di­ents to make it even eas­ier.

Try to clean up as you go. Run a sink full of hot soapy wa­ter be­fore you start so you can dump dirty cook­ing uten­sils straight in. Never put sharp knives in a sink full of wa­ter; you won’t see them and you could cut your­self.

Muesli, fruit and yo­gurt par­fait

◗ cup fresh fruit of your choice (ki­wifruit, blue­ber­ries and straw­ber­ries are great) ◗ cup good-qual­ity muesli ◗ cup low-fat yo­gurt (you can use ei­ther plain or fruit-flavoured yo­gurt) ◗ a few fresh mint leaves, for dec­o­ra­tion

Col­lect all the in­gre­di­ents and put them on the kitchen bench.

Put a par­fait glass or dessert bowl on a pretty nap­kin on a plate.

De­pend­ing on the fruit you have cho­sen, wash or peel it and care­fully cut into pieces.

Ask for help from some­one older if you aren’t al­lowed to use a knife.

Pour the muesli into the bot­tom of the glass or bowl. Place fruit pieces over the top of the muesli, then care­fully spoon the yo­gurt over the fruit.

Top the yo­gurt with mint leaves and dec­o­rate the glass or bowl with ex­tra fruit.

Serve im­me­di­ately with a kiss and a hug for mum.
