スペインで販売している絵本「Con una abejita Hacemos Tortitas」を見ながら、親子で料理をしている様子です。とても可愛らしい女の子がお母さんと一緒に、一生懸命クッキング中です。スペインの友達が親子の会話を教えてくれました。

My Spanish friend left a comment in the video. The little girl's mom replied to my  friend this: "We love thebook and we read it often, My daughter has a lot of fun   and,  despite she can't read yet, she learned it byheart. It's a very nice book to  introduce  little children to cooking".  I'm very happy to hear that. Also mySpanish  friend translated  this video for me. Gracias!

Here it is:

Girl: Ready, steady, go! Hello, little friends, today I've got a book to make pancakes.

Mom: Yaaay!


Mom: "We make pancakes with a little bee". What does it say there?

Girl: "Do you want to make pancakes with me?" Yaaay!

Mon: Yaaay!

Girl: Let's go. First you have to put an egg in a bowl.

M: All right.

G: One egg. Here we have an egg.(she whips the egg) Like this?

M: Very well done.

G: Now we have done the egg.(Takes the book) Now, look, we have to add the flour.

M: "Second: add 100 gr of flour". Let's go.

G: (before pouring the flour into the bowl) All of it?

M: All of it. All right. Now what else?

G: (reading the book) Oh! A little glass of milk!

M: All right, a little glass of milk. In the flour.

G: Do I pout all of it?

M: Yes.

G: All of it?

M: Yes. Very good.

G: Now we have the milk.

M: What else? (looks at the book) Pour a tea spoon of sugar...

G: Pour some oil...

M: Yeast and salt. Okay. Sugar... one(spoonful).

G: One?

M: Yes.

G. A big spoonful?

M: Yes.

G: Let's see...

M: A very big one. Like that. All right. One of sugar... Pour the yeats.

G: This?

M: Yes. Two (spoonfuls).

G: One... And two. And now the oil.

M: Now the oil. One and two.

G: Very good, I'll whip it.

M: Fine, you whip it.

G: (while whipping) Very good, little friends... Hum, bring the pan out. After that we  have to add... I don'tremember.

M: Let's read it.

G: Me! I read it! I was reading it. I was reading it, right?

M: Yes.

G: All right, this is it.

M: Now the salt

G: Now the salt. Very good. Let's whip it.(She opens the book again and see that the  next instruction iswhipping) Ah, but I've already whipped it, I already did it!

M: It says: "mix everything. Good job!"

G: Now the pan to make it change its color.

M: Okay.

G: The pan.

M: All right, let's get the pan.

G: Now the pan to make it change its color.

M: Fine.

G: (images of the pan) Now this.

M: Until it changes its color.

G: ... Changes its color.

M: Let's see... let's turn the pancake upside down... Here it is the first pancake. It's  almost done!

G: Mom, in the plate.

M: Okay. Has it changed its color?

G: Yes. It's almost done. More, more, more... it's done! another pancake more, mom!

M: Another one.

G: (Then she sings to the baby) Pancakes, pancakes. Do you want to make pancakes  with me? The butter.

M: A bit of butter.

G. Now the honey!

M: Now a little cup to make a picnic. Look, Haridian's cup...

G: Mom

M: And Izan's cup.

G: Mom, may I borrow this one?

M: Do you want this (cup)?

G. Yes.

M: Okay, then Haridian's cup for Izan.

Kokeshi girls

Este es mi nuevo proyecto: son recortables de "Muñecas Kokeshi".
Las Kokeshi  son muñecas de madera de diseño sencillo y hechas a mano que sefabrican en el Noreste de Japón desde hace muchísimo tiempo.

スペインの友達が、私のこけしのイラストでバッグを作ってくれました。軽くてすごく丈夫。たくさん物が入るお気に入りのバッグです。こけしは、外国でも 「KOKESHI」 の呼び名でとても人気があります。日本の伝統人形が海外で評価されるのは嬉しいです。

This is my new paper doll's project: the "Kokeshi girls". The Kokeshi are traditional  Japanese dolls whichare handmade from wood and have a very simple design. They  have been made in the north-east region inJapan since very old time. My spanish  best friend presented this bag to me. Thank you very much!!

この枕を抱えた可愛い眠り姫は、外国の Momiji さんのこけしです。外国だと形もデザインもまるで変ってきますね。でも、シンプルなデザインは、外国でも、こけしの基本のようです。

Momiji さんのこけしは、海外のさまざまな国のアーティストがデザインしています。国によって、柄や色使いが変わっていくのが楽しいです。この四つ葉のクローバーの女の子の名前はLucky。やはり外国でも、四つ葉は幸運のシンボルなんですね。

Shamrock Shakes


この緑色の飲み物は、アメリカ、カナダなどのマクドナルドの春の季節限定商品、マックシェイクです。味はミント味でバニラシェイクだそうです。Momiji さんのHPに作り方が載っていました♪

You will need

4 bigg-ish strawberries (you can keep adding them to taste depending on how sweet you want it to  be.)
2 large handfuls of spinach or kale
A heaped teaspoon of almond butter (cashew butter or peanut butter are also excellent choices.)
300 ml of almond milk (you can use regular milk too)
1 frozen banana

この青いこけしの名前は  Kyoka で、Happiness  という意味が込められているんだとか。名前や意味をつけるのも、愛着ができて良いですね。

こちらは、Milan Editionsさんのこけし。こちらもやはり一つ一つに名前がついています。名前というより苗字?とても可愛らしいこけしです。
