Sweet breaks!

I'm very busy at work now and for the next weeks...I'm in charge with educational services at the art foundation where I work and for the next months we'll have many workshops with children from 3 to 15 and not so much free time...
















...I like working with kids in a creative way exploring the paths of contemporary art...but when I come back home I've few energies for doing something else...

















...and when I'm tired, and not only, I need sweets...


















...I found the recipe of this milk jam on the web and I made it...

















...in the classic way and adding dark chocolate...
Not very good for the diet, but perfect for the mood...fortunately I haven't problems with the scale...not yet!
Thank you for all your messages....I promise to visit all of you as soon as possible!

Dear Vale!
The "confiture au chocolat" must be so yamy :-) I see you, when I´m tired and don´t have mood, I don´t have any inspiration for my creation too...but on the otherside, sometimes it is a perfect relax between "busy days" for me.
Have a nice (and less busy) days!
Hugs :-)

Ciao, Vale...something sweet is the perfect anecdote for busy days, and your homemade jars look so pretty and tempting! Chocolate is one of the major food necessities for a healthy life ( my theory)! Good luck with your workshops!

maría cecilia ha detto...

Vale, hope you enjoy very much your time with the kids and when you come home at night have a sweet spoon of your confiture de lait ("manjar")... I love manjar and many nights, late at night, I have to take lots of spoons of manjar.
So bad you didn´t found any bargain at the flea market.
Muchos cariños,
Maria Cecilia

Ha, I am the same way...when I get tired I turn to sweets! Your images are so lovely!!! I recently tried stenciling on an old galvanized bucket, but it didn't turn out so good so I just wiped it off right away...you've inspired me to try again!

Happy Wednesday Vale!
