dough



I made play dough for Israel today. He hasn't had a chance to play with it yet because he took a 3 1/2 hr nap then woke up hungry...
anyways, I remember my mom making this for us and now it's my turn. It doesn't feel like that long ago I forming little creatures
out of home made dough, my how time flies!
Here's the recipe, in case you're in need of a good one:
1 cp flour
1/2 cp salt
2 tlb cream of tartar
1 cp water
1 tlb vegetable oil
In saucepan combine dry ingredients, add water & oil until mixed. Heat mixture
over medium, stirring until dough begins to turn lumpy and thick. Divide into
as many portions as you want and drop 1 or 2 drops food coloring and knead together.
I didn't blend mine completely because I like the swirls of color!
