Thank you for your kind words on my last post I really appreciated them and I feel a bit calmer now.
We have another sunny day again today, wow That's three day on the trot but unfortunately it's all about to change and it'll be back to normal, rain.
I made some chocolate scones on Sunday, a bit of an experiment. Ooo they are so good. I put some cocoa powder in with the dry mix and instead of using a milk and egg mixture to bind it all together I used egg and soya custard (it needed using up). The mix was very soft and wet and when baked was still moist (a bit cakey). when a little cooled I split them and spread chocolate spread. (well they had to be tested, didn't they). They would have been extra nice with some whipped cream on top. L loved them, M hated them. Next time I'll make them bigger, extra yumminess.
Look what else I made. Fortune Cookies. We hunted every where to buy them but to no avail so in the end I trawled the internet to find a recipe. They taste amazing but I don't think I will make them again because I had make them in small batches so that I had time to fold and bend them before setting. To fold and bend the cookies you really need to wear cotton gloves which I don't have so I used a clean tea towel. It was a bit tricky but got there in the end. I made these for L's Chinese presentation at Guides last night. I didn't put the fortunes inside them for hygiene purposes but placed them in a bowl. The evening was a great success. 1 Challenge down just 9 more to do for L's Baden Powel badge.
Has anyone else been involved with the Baden Powel Challenge badge? When I was in Guides it was the Queens Guide badge (I didn't go for it) now the Senior Section, formally known as Rangers, do this one.
I'm off to enjoy some sunshine so I will catch our with you again soon
