After lunch today I couldn't help but have a small slice of cheesecake. It was my son's 19th birthday yesterday and this was so delicious. No, I didn't make it. Its the only time of the year that I buy a fancy cake and my sons choose what they want. This one was a baked cheesecake covered in chocolate - very wicked!! My son has taken half of it to share with all his friends, I hope he eats what is left because it I shouldn't eat any more.
After all those calories I thought I would take a "turn" in the garden, as Jane Austin would say. Whilst smelling the jasmine, admiring the tomatoes and tasting the spinach I picked this little posy of sweet-pea and lavender. So now when I wash the dishes I can admire the flowers.
My DH likes to eat a biscuit at night when he gets up for a drink of water - strange I know but a habit he has had for years. So I make biscuits for him, this weeks are similar to my ANZAC recipe but modified slightly - everything is based on the one cup measure! One cup of rolled oats, 1 cup of coconut, 1 cup of currents, 1 cup of brown sugar, 1 cup almond flakes, 1 cup of honey/golden syrup (mixed), 1 cup plain flour, spices and butter (200g). They turned out really well! I try and make something different each week. Last week was lemon biscuits and the week before ginger.
