Baking biscuits and using what we've got

Hi everyone

Daisy asked to bake biscuits this afternoon so we made a very simple recipe from her comic. These turned out to be the best biscuits we've ever made! 

Daisy loves icing and decorating. The bunny biscuits were her choice :)

Some of Daisy's finished biscuits...we love baking!

I thought I'd share this easy retro pudding we had yesterday...

Raspberry Angel Delight and tinned peaches! It was lovely. I'm using up some of the bits and bobs in my cupboards as they're getting full again and I'm trying to keep a sensible store cupboard, not an overflowing one! 

I've been useless in remembering to photograph my dinners before eating them! 

I had some veg that needed using up and I always try to use what's in the fridge before my shopping arrives on a Thursday. I chopped some peppers, red onions and spring onions, added a few sprays of oil ready to roast. I later added these to boiled rice. I bought some ribs when they were on offer and marinaded them...

This marinade was different to my usual one. I experimented with what I had in the cupboard and it gave the meat a lovely flavour. 

Sorry we ate it before I remembered to take a photo!

    1. Hi Nim
      They were from a peppa pig comic. We cut out all the games and activities to make so I'm not sure which date, but from the last couple of months xx
