With all this activity going on I haven't had a great deal of time for much else. A little bit of crochet for my CWA branch - this scarflet which is a free pattern on Ravelry by Suzetta Williams. I've made this before and always like the way it turns out. Easy too which is a bonus. For this I used Superfine 100% Merino 8 ply (DK) Wool with a 4.50mm hook.
During the paperwork clean-up I came across two recipes hand written by my late mother and I'd like to share them with you here - also so I can find them again when I want them. They both sound yummy so if you decide to try one please let me know what you think.
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup coconut
1.5 cups self-raising flour
4 ozs margarine
small pkt salted peanuts
Mix together sugar, coconut, flour and peanuts. Stir in melted margarine and mix well. Press into greased slab tin and cook in moderate oven 15-20 minutes.
2 cups self-raising flour
2 cups brown sugar
115 grams butter or margarine
1 cup milk
carb soda, spice, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt
Rub ingredients together in a bowl, then divide into two portions. Put half into a biscuit tray and flatten down. To the other half, add 1 beaten egg 1 cup milk, 1 teaspoon carb soda, 1 teaspoon spice, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1 teaspoon nutmeg and a pinch of salt. Beat all together and pour over the base. Sprinkle with walnuts and cook for 30 minutes in a moderate oven.
There is one more recipe which is for Peanut Crisps but I'll keep that till my next post.
Before I finish off, the family need to say hello. Oliver spent last weekend with his Mum at Bermagui on the NSW south coast - he loved playing in the sand.
Madison and Quincy couldn't stay awake long enough so here's a shot of what they do best ..
Bye for now. xox
