Which gave us plenty of energy for outdoor pursuits.
I found this recipe somewhere ages ago and delve into it off and on, using whatever is in the house (that recipe should read one and a half cups of flour) I have to admit that I have NO idea where I found it. So if it looks familiar to you. Own UP!
It is great.
We ate them so fast we forgot the last penultimate shot. Ah well. I always try to get a shot of the mixture just in case.
The nice gentlemen who are putting in the insulation, came late then left early- the day before yesterday. They were having trouble with their gear. Then they did not come back At All yesterday, so I am still only able to look at corners of my doors and windows, pulling back the cardboard and peering pathetically in amongst the wrappings.

PS. I have started writing for a parenting site, as a way of firing up Potatoes are your Best Friend, the book about being a single mother with too many children and not enough food.

Though writing for an internet audience is very different kind of work from writing for book readers so I am still finding my rhythm. Here is my first effort writing as nanny c. Today’s essay is about the best time of the day to feed your kids. My aim to is to write twice a week for them. However it is a new site so I am also watching the other contributors to determine whether or not I want to be in their club long term. It is all about tone. If you get time to pop over let me know what you think.
