Our grandchildren are all teenagers, or older now. Gone are the days when they enjoyed camping out with Nana and Papous, running wild in the fields and roads around us, chasing the local wild cats, honing their skills in the kitchen and sleeping out on the vernadah with those wild cats roaming around them.
But now and again nostalgia takes over and they appear for a night and a day. Papous spends the time working out their menu, frying their favourite meatballs and arranging for evening pizza making sessions. Nana rubs her hands and adds to the list of jobs for them to do.
An early morning face. Poppi flips the pancakes
And it lands perfectly in the pan. She is number three in the line of pancake makers. Her two older siblings turned into experts and her cousins are fighting for number one spot
Ducks lined up in a row
It was really too hot for pizza making so we bought some ready frozen and added a little extra. Darn nice they were too.
Young Jamie has to avoid salt at all costs so we made him mini pizzas with greek pitta bread as the base, ketch-up and grated gouda. They were even darn nice the next day, cold, as an accompaniment to bifteki (handmade hamburger) and greek potatoes
Top of Nana's list was clean the last of the carpets. Lots of fun. Cold water on a hot summer's morning and a high pressure hose.
