A good family holiday always begins with a morning of baking. It does in our house anyway. In part, because I detest the idea of buying expensive snacks. And partly because those store-bought snacks contain all sorts of things I don't want to consume.
I am constantly amazed at how things have changed since I was a child, when it comes to running a household. No longer is there a hand-written, pasted-in bunch of recipes. Nope. My random collection is mostly typed. And if I don't have a recipe for something I grab my laptop and that becomes my recipe book. After all - Google knows (and has access to) everything! So this morning after dropping the kids off my bench ended up littered from one end to the other with all sorts of baking ingredients and paraphernalia.
My efforts have resulted in boxes of:
chocolate biscuits (cookies)
gluten free carrot muffins
We're ready for our mid-year winter school holidays. Which begin tomorrow at 3.30pm! The end of Term 2 has almost arrived.
