Melt 1 large tablespoon of REAL BUTTER in a pot or in the microwave then into the pot add:
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup SR flour
pinch of salt
1 cup of choc chips and peanuts, or sultanas, or apricots, or whatever takes your fancy
Mix, roll into balls, place on greased baking tray with a fair bit of space between them as they spread out. bake 180 degrees for about 8 minutes. Leave to cool a few minutes then slide off with a butter knife.
The combinations are endless. Our favourites are apricot, almond and chocolate chunks but even just sultanas are good!
We hit pay dirt at our local op shop last week when we stumbled on a two dollar basket sale. I ended up with a lovely skirt for Hannah, a heap of new china, another little jug to add to my ever growing collection, a couple of balls of crafty wool, a lovely 70s style bowl, a pretty old doiley, and a stack of pillowcases perfect for upcycling into some smaller projects - $2 well spent!
Hannah is loving school and the flurry of activities that go with it. Last week was Crazy Hair Day:Today was Sports Day. As an athletically challenged super nerd I was a little apprehensive about Sports Day. I am pleased to say that the emphasis was clearly on participation and having fun - so far our little school is just coming up trumps every single time!
A very hot, tiring, but happy day was had by all!
Yesterday I finally spent a crafty day with a good friend. You can read all about it here http://www.nicolewood.blogspot.com/ (I forgot to take photos but I am really just directing you here because Nic said such nice things about me LOL!)
And no, I still haven't done my tax ARRRGGGHHHH!
