Passionfuit butter cookies
and Raspberry coconut slice
The slice was the biggest hit. It's a recipe I've had since I was 15 and that was probably the last time I made it oo. Eating a piece brought back fond memories of my sister, Karen and myself cooking this at her place.
And because it's Friday I have to blog about my food waste this week. It's quite an unusual food wastage item as you can see. Someone told me you can freeze cream. And its true, you can, but when you defost it, it looks like cottage cheese. It still tastes O.K but you can't whip it once it's been frozen and it just looks too ugly to do anything else with. So I threw it out.
This tip is on the website but I started doing this about 6 months ago. I have stopped buying soft drink. Any kind, not just diet coke but all carbonated drinks.
They are full of suger, or worse, chemicals. They cost too much for what is essentailly fizzy water and I didn't like how much my 18 year old son was drinking. I also did not want Miss R getting into the habit of drinking it either when she is already so happy with her water.
So out it went.
Now, my 18 year old has a car and a job so he does buy soft drink when he is out but at least I am not encouraging the habit at home. We drink organic milk or organic juice with our breakfast and water with every other meal. And hey, we're even starting to enjoy it.
No More of this - ever!
