It's Friday already and I have completely lost this week forever.
I guess the one day at Barbara's funeral on Monday has put my whole week out. It has been go, go for the rest of the time. And guess who ended up driving around Adelaide, which I had never done before so I am quite proud of myself. A Navman was a great help and so was a daughter who knew where we were going, but there was no offer from her to drive though, thanks Sarah.
I did make time to make some biscuits yesterday, and already they are nearly all gone.
Shall make some more tomorrow. This choc chip recipe is a little different because rolled oats has been added.
2 3/4 cups Self Raising Flour
2 cups rolled oats
1 cup castor sugar
1 tspn vanilla essence
1 cup brown sugar
100gm packet dark choc bits
Beat butter, sugars and essence in bowl with electric mixer until light and fluffy.
Add eggs one at a time, beating until combined after each addition, stir in sifted flour, rolled oats and choc bits.
Place heaped teaspoons of mixture on lightly greased oven trays, bake in moderate oven for about 12 minutes, or until lightly browned.
Let stand on trays for 5 minutes, turn onto wire racks to cool.
Makes about 70 biscuits.
I didn't use the electric mixer when I made mine as I had some daycare children peacefully sleeping. I also halved the recipe, which I shouldn't have because they have been gobbled up.
I do promise to try and catch up on some of your blogs this weekend. Last night I was soooo tired I don't remember my head hitting the pillow, and the morning came before I wanted it too.
The nights have really cooled down now as we countdown to the Winter season.
It is going to get down to 6 degrees tonight, however we did have some rain (30mm/120points) last Sunday and Monday, but I missed it because of being in Adelaide. I have not been home the last two times that it has rained, I am sorry I missed such a rare occasion, lets hope a little greenery appears. The chooks (chickens) haven't seen a blade of grass for about twelve months.
Wishing you all a wonderful blessed weekend,
