As the days disappear until Dylan's big school trip to the snow, the fundraising effort seems to just keep continuing. Wednesday was a big cross country event held at school - so another opportunity to impress with my vast baking skills. Well actually, I just try for something edible...
My go-to recipe is a basic chocolate cookie... this time I went to town with the decorations (thanks for the inspiration from the latest cake decorating weekly magazine that is being promoted in NZ at present).
|Heard of cows???|
Every now and then - I think, hmm, maybe I could manage that? Now these cows aren't rocket science in the decorating world - chocolate buttercream icing, jellybeans, chocolate melts, marshmallows and chocolate drops. I figured I could do these... and they turned out not too bad.
In my spare moments I've been reading - recently downloading the first book in David Edding's series The Belgariad. I purchased these books for my brother as they were published back in the 1980's???, probably reading them several times in my teenage years; and haven't read them since. The first few pages were like curling up with an old friend... comfortable like a pair of old slippers. I'm really enjoying the repeat performance.
Sorry no sewing this time... maybe next week?
