Bringing simple back

I have no idea why (possibly the fact that we've stayed close to home for the past two weeks and hunkered down and - finally - enjoyed some family time together, just the three of us), but I am coming out with ideas to entertain the LGBB left, right and centre again.

Phew! I thought all my ingenious ideas in the Amusement Park @ Home 4 Kids department had up and scarpered about, ooh, last March. But I've had a flurry of spur-of-the-moment ideas that keep little minds amused (and also trick them into doing stuff they know they want to do - like eat - but are just testing boundaries on and seeing who'll cave first). Or at least, make something very ordinary and average suddenly spectacular and worth more than anything shop-bought for a ludicrous amount of hard-earned money.

So, I give you today's "trick":

Baked Bean Boats.
(if you have an ITNG fan, they're also good to call Iggle Piggle boats ;)

Cut the crusts off four slices wholemeal bread.
Roll with a rolling pin to flatten.
Line the bread in non-stick muffin pan.
Bake in slow oven for 5-ish minutes to harden.
Spoon warmed baked beans into each "boat" and sprinkle with cheese.
