The menu this week:
Recipes to follow!
Lunches will be coked ham, cheese, homemade bread, soup, salads and egg and cress sandwiches. Desserts will no doubt involve lemons, since I bought a huge bag of them...I'm thinking lemon meringue pie and lemon cake, brownies, cupcakes and pancakes.
Some dishes from the past month......
First attempt at Whoopees, so called because when the Amish men in America discovered them in their lunchboxes, they'd cry "whoopee!"; tasty but not quite the way they were meant to be. They're supposed to be half cake, half biscuit but they resembled giant gypsy creams and were definitely more cookie than crumble. Not that the kids complained! I made the first batch for Val G and they went down rather well at her hoose. They don't keep well though. I'll make another batch with the added addition of baking powder and post the recipe if it works.
Yet another tasty Salad
Mini Chicken Pies!
Helen is Happy With Her Chicken Pie. Can you tell?
