Thanks and a recipe

 Hello All

Here I am !

Thanks for the feedback about the proposed group. The word "Skills" will definitely have to be in the group/event/gathering title. I reckon it will be new year when we get started as I have so much to do here and am so far behind with the Civic Society stuff and I haven't even thought about Christmas yet. However, it gives me time to prepare. I have been putting aside all the seed I save as I can give packets of seed to people who are interested. So far I have several types of bean seed, loofah, sunflower and pumpkin extra to my needs. I'm also gathering simple sewing/ knitting etc patterns. 

Today I'm acting like a proper smallholder! I have jarred a couple of buckets of honey, made butter with some extra cream, made tomato puree, peeled a couple more loofahs, chopped and froze bunches of parsley and made some peanut butter cookies , using eggs that I put down in waterglass last summer. Which means I have absolutely no energy left to dig a patch over for the garlic and spring cabbage. Manana eh?! So here I am at the laptop writing another post and trawling through the facebook (Meta) groups I follow.

The biscuits I made were from a recipe I found in a Tesco magazine sent to me by a friend. What caught my eye was it it had only three ingredients, which I already had and didn't contain any flour. I'm surprised that Tesco didn't mention that. Anyway here is the recipe if you are coeliac or indeed like peanut butter.

Peanut cookies

Whisk together one large egg and 200g of soft brown sugar until smooth. Add 225g of crunchy peanut butter until blended well. Cover and chill for half an hour. Heat oven to 180 or 160 for fan/ gas 4. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper. After half an hour scoop out 10 balls of dough with a dessert spoon, giving them plenty of room to spread. Cook for 12  to 15 mins, leave to cool for 15mins and then transfer to wire rack to finish cooling. 

Those I cooked spread to an enormous size and I wondered if a smaller egg might reduce the size, but who knows. Here is a poor pic of said cookies 

This week I have had my granddaughter's dogs to stay while she has visited my daughter in Jersey. I've really enjoyed having them as they are such delightful kind dogs. ( A yellow Lab and a Bernese) Mind you, like grandchildren, it's good to pass them back too!

Here they are. The Lab is Coda and the Bernese is Hattie.

"Enough" you cry

Back Soon

  1. 3 ingredients and no rolling out sounds perfect. Only problem is I'm already a peanut-butter-aholic!

    1. Hi Sue. Hope all well with you. I have to admit I haven't eaten peanut butter in many years as I didn't like it. Trying it again its not so bad !

  2. I saw that recipe and couldn't believe it only needed 3 ingredients.
    On a different note I have 20 odd packets of unopened veg and herb seeds that I do not want. In the first lockdown I did a trial subscription to Kitchen Garden magazine and received lots of free seeds. If you can make use of them then e mail me your address and I will get them in post next week.

    1. Thank you so much for your generous offer DM Will email you this weekend. I'm planning on having as much stuff to give away or share as I know money is tight for some folk and sometimes having no money means you can't even support things that will save you money, if you see what I mean!

  3. Only three ingredients. I will be doing this recipe shortly. Thanks for sharing.

    God bless.

    1. I know! good recipe eh? Waiting to see if the family like them when they call over the weekend. If so it will be a keeper,

  4. A smaller spoon maybe needed for the biscuits.

  5. Congratulations, wonderful work, it's beautiful so much and good idea on site.
