This last week has seen us finally get a new oven installed, the old one gave out weeks ago and it was a bit of a process to get a new one. But it is all sorted now and since I took time out to clean and tidy the pantry yesterday I decided to do some baking with my supplies today.
First up was this delicious ginger crunch slice, my boys both enjoyed some and happily informed me that it tastes really yummy just like gingerbread men.
There was a lot of crumbs left in the tray from cutting the ginger crunch, so I poured it all into a little jar and am thinking it might be nice sprinkled over vanilla ice-cream later in the week.
And next was my very first attempt at Chocolate Brownies, made with dark, milk and white chocolate. It smelt divine whilst cooking and I must say has turned out fantastic. Very yummy indeed. I think next baking day I might need to add some savoury as well, although we don’t cook a lot of very sweet treats like these brownies so I think this is fine.
I have also been busy with my crochet hook, whipping up some wash cloths and have managed to make a small start on a dish cloth today. I am hoping to be able to gift some for Christmas presents, and I am adding myself to the list as well, I mean I really should make some for myself to know that they are nice to receive as a gift…… right….. thats my idea anyway. Now I might make a cup of tea, and settle down for a short time to do some more dishcloth making.
Take care xx
