This Weekend.

A lot of time spent in the kitchen yesterday: banana bread, passionfruit slice and chicken soup.
I love seeing our children's artwork and the above piece was done by 9 year old daughter.
The aim this week is to plant sweet peas.  The garden bed needs to be prepared (ie weeded and composted soil added to the garden bed).  Husband E will build a trellis.

Passionfruit Slice:

Bake a base of your choice.  This time I made a shortbread base, but next time I might try a coconut/flour type of base which I have used for choc/caramel slice in the past.
For the topping, mix a can of condensed milk, a small can of passionfruit and 3T of lemon juice.
Pour over the baked base and bake till set.
Refrigerate.  It is quite rich!

Hands On.

Two of our children have been involved with the Davis Dyslexia program over the last 2 weeks.  There was a plant nursery close by so one child chose to build up their plant collection....

In Top Gear.

15 year old son and husband E enjoyed The Top Gear Festival again this year as their Christmas gift from last year.  A great day!
