Good Heavens - 495...nearly there!

Nearly 500 posts - nearly give away time!  Standby!!!

I started today with some baking!  Tomorrow is haircut day for the boys and that means I have to get my "payment" sorted - baking!  First up a batch of Afghan Biscuits - recipe here.  
 Next a batch of my Nanna's shortbread.  They are still wrapped up in the fridge - I will be cooking them tomorrow morning.  I can't share this recipe - no one gets this recipe.   My mum always told me to keep it as a family recipe so basically you would have to marry one of my sons to get this recipe!  LOL!!
 Finally I made some Chunky Peanut Biscuits.  My girlfriend Jenni is married to a farmer in Western Australia and she gave me this recipe.  She said she makes this big and chunky so her hubby can grab a handful before he goes out to work.  


1 cup of plain flour
2 teaspn cocoa sifted
½ teaspn carb soda
1 cup peanuts
1 cup sugar
1 cup coconut

125 g butter melted
1 egg

Mix dry ingredients and add wet ingredients.  Mix well. Roll into small balls. Place on non stick tray. Bake 15-20 min at 150ºC

This is such a simple quick recipe!  Enjoy!

And finally - my boy quilt is finally a flimsy!  I decided to do a pieced border as I had to make the quilt a certain size to fit the backing.   I don't enjoy the pinning stage but I think I am going to enjoy the quilting with this one.  I have to piece the backing first.
That is a job for this week and it is also time for me to get back to the International Charity Bazaar Quilt and get it finished!

Till next time................happy stitching!
