The Good Life

Miss A has had a tremendous start to Term 2, this week bringing home the school "Star Student" trophy.  She was so very chuffed!

This long weekend for me is all about spending some quality time with my family.

Yesterday was spent greening their thumbs, planting Spring bulbs

and picking a posy of flowers from the garden.

Today was spent at Nanna's place baking and baking with a little more baking thrown in. 

And what would Anzac Day be without some Anzac Biscuits.  The first batch dissapeared so quickly a second batch was called for!  And the best bit?  They're allergy friendly!!

We all love them and I like to put a couple in their lunchboxes occasionally as a treat.

Anzac Biscuits 

125g margarine
1 tablespoon golden syrup or treacle
1 teaspoon bi-carb soda
2 tablespoons boiling water
1 cup rolled oats
1cup disiccated coconut
1 cup plain flour
3/4 cup brown sugar

Pre-heat oven to 150 degrees Celcius.  Line two baking trays with baking paper.  Melt marg and golden syrup in a saucepan.  Add bi-carb soda mixed with boiling water.  Combine all remaining dry ingredients in a bowl then add melted mixture.  Mix to a moist but firm consistency.  Drop teaspoonfuls of the mixture onto tray and flatten slightly with a fork.  Bake until golden brown, approx. 15 minutes.  Cool for afew minutes before placing onto a cooling tray.

Lest We Forget

I wonder what adventures tommorrow will bring?
