Halloween 2018 – Spider Biscuits

With Halloween falling on a Wednesday this year, it was going to be a busy afternoon for the boys!

On Wednesdays, our son does tae kwon do after school with a couple of his mates. They go straight from school to one of the boy’s houses as he lives close to where the class is held.  So, to make some sort of contribution to this weekly visit, I make afternoon tea which I deliver during the day. Mimi’s chocolate cake is a favourite, but I try to make different things and try out new recipes from time to time. So it was a perfect opportunity to make a Halloween-inspired treat!

Choc Coconut Bliss Balls

Our young son does a lot of sport, and it’s important that he has something to eat beforehand to give him the energy he needs. I’ve tried making protein balls before, and they haven’t been as successful as I’d like. As in, they taste pretty good to me, but the sports dude will eat one or two before saying that he doesn’t really want any more 😦

Until now!

Lovely Lemons!

Recently I had the opportunity to pick a bag full of lemons from a very old lemon tree, before the property passed to the new owners. My poor little lemon tree in a pot at home doesn’t do the best job at producing fruit, so I was very pleased to stock up!

While they don’t look as ‘beautiful’ as shop-bought, their blemishes are only skin deep, and they still taste great! Here they are, with a commercial lemon for comparison
