Flapjack Cookies?

* Just a simple Basket of Flowers today *

With Bougainvillea and some yellow Lantana. 

*

Sometimes you only need a few cuttings of flowers with some leaves from the garden to make a lovely arrangement.

I hope you can find some kind of flower from your garden or maybe purchase some from the shop – to make a special arrangement for your kitchen or lounge room.

It is amazing how flowers can lift the spirit  and we can receive some joy from their perfume also from their presence in our home.

Even one flower or a couple of small cuttings of green leaves in a vase or glass can be very nice.

In the kitchen if you put a sprig of Mint in a glass or other Herb that you specially like somewhere near the sink it is really nice to touch one of their leaves between your fingers and smell their particular perfume.  It can give you a lift in your spirit while washing up…..etc.,  Remember you can also eat one of the leaves off of your special Herb, they are very good for us.

Here is a tasty recipe:     (Have you ever made these)?

The Children will love them *

Flap Jacks: 

6 oz-Butter or Margarine;  6 oz-Demerara Sugar; 8 oz-Rolled Oats; pinch of Salt.

Cream the Butter until soft. Mix together Sugar, Oats & Salt then Stir into the Fat.  Transfer the mixture to greased tin 9” by 12” and spread evenly. Bake for 30 mins. At Reg. 5. or 180 deg.  When cooked leave for a few minutes in the tin, then cut into squares or fingers.

*

Psalm: 133 verse 1

Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!

*

We can dwell in unity with each other and share a Flap Jack…….How about that then???????????

*

Thought you may like a Poem – so here we are:-

Pansy Flower ”

 Hello, I am a Pansy Flower, with a face upon my Petals.

My face is full of colour – Purple, Red and Yellow.

You can see my face if you look quite closely.

My face looks to the sky.

Although I am beautiful I am really quite shy.

I hide among the taller plants, they are so high and lofty.

But I don’t mind a bit, because I’ll never – ever be lonely.

We usually grow in clusters you see, us dearest little ’Pansies’.

Children love to peer at us, they wonder if we can see them.

Yes of course we can.

We see the Sun, we feel the breeze, the lovely refreshing rain.

We love to grow in our little clumps and we cheer you up

if you feel down in the dumps.

I have no arms or legs you know but I have good strong

leggy roots.

So grow me in your garden beds or put me in a pot.

Just remember not to put me somewhere that is really too hot.

Remember I am your little Pansy friend

with a beautiful friendly face.  …

*Hope you have a lovely Day Today*

Gluten Free Date & Banana Cake *

Just Artificial & Dried Flowers today but they still look lovely.

Do you like Bananas and Dates? This is a Gluten Free recipe that I have made and seems to work O.K. It is also good to eat for anyone who is not gluten free. So all family can hopefully enjoy it.

I also found it was quite tasty with butter and lemon curd (spread) or jam put on it when you cut a slice to eat.

Round ones are good but I made a square one which is easier to slice and butter.

Here is my new Recipe:……

Date & Banana Cake:

3cups: Gluten Free Self Raising Flour.

1cup: Dates + heaped Teaspoon Bi-Carb.

2: Banana’s or (3 small ones) Mashed

Sugar to taste at least half a cup.

1teaspoon: White Vinegar.

2oz: Margarine.

Method:

To Soak Dates: Sprinkle with the Bi-Carb, – Cover with Boiling Water – allow to soak half to 1hour. (I find it best to cut Dates in half before soaking to make sure no date stones are in them).

Rub Margarine into Flour with your hands, then Mix All Together (yes – put Date Water in) if necessary add a bit more water but don’t make the mixture too wet.

Put into lined Baking Tin….

Sprinkle over the top of Cake Mixture with extra Sugar.

Bake in over 180deg. approx. 1hour.

Genesis Chapter 1 verse 1. In the beginning God created the Heavens

and the Earth.

*All donations are for our Anglican Church* and gratefully received *

All Flowers are lovely Creations.

Look what a lovely Colour these Beautiful Flowers are.

These are the Flowers on a tree in my front garden.
However I am not sure what the tree is called.
Mostly when it is in full bloom all the leaves have dropped off.
The small green birds love to sip the nectar from inside the petals.

So today maybe the day is the day to pick or choose a red flower to put in a vase on your table or workspace. They really do brighten and cheer the room up ……… But…….. if you cannot find a red flower it is nice to put some other colour in, maybe with some green leaves to make a special show that will last for a few days to give pleasure to whoever will see them.

Just one Flower say’s – *Look at Me*

Perhaps we should have a Recipe – Here we are then:

We have lots of Lemons at the moment so thought this would be a good recipe to try.

You will find the above recipe in our Recipe e-Book available from the Link below.

Poem: “The Day is Here”

Beautiful Arrangement of Pretend Flowers.

I thought this arrangement looks very Cheerful….it is surprising what you can do with some Artificial Flowers if you do not have any real ones.*

Here is a Poem for us Today:

Psalm: 104 verse 1 – I will sing of your Love & Justice; to You O LORD, I will sing Praise.

How about FISH for Dinner?

My Lovely display of Artificial Flowers in a Basket with Fresh Palm Leaves.

How about choosing to have Fish for dinner –

it is excellent protein for us and can be very tasty.

Here is a Pen & Ink Drawing that I did of a Fish.

Yes This is a Fish….not sure what sort though.

So what Fish do you like to eat?

I think I like most Fish really and find there are lots of ways to cook them.

The main Fish around here are ….North West Snapper, Black Snapper, Pink Snapper, Taylor, Mullet, Yellow Tail.. Also Crabs and Cray’s (Lobster)

Non edible Fish or Creature’s are: Dolphin, Sharks (the small Sharks are good to eat) Groupers, Blowies, Sea Snakes, Turtles and the usual small Sea Creatures that abound in most places like Star Fish, Jelly Fish, Stone Fish, Cuttle Fish. We have beautiful beaches that you can stand on the Shore to Fish from.

Our beaches can rival the best of anywhere in the world.

Here is a Recipe:Salmon Mornay

415g,tin-Pink Salmon; 2cups-Cooked Long grain Rice; Cheese Sauce; Grated Cheese; White Pepper.

Method:

Spread the Cooked Rice into a Lamington Dish, Pile the Salmon on top of the Rice, Cover with your Favourite Cheese Sauce and Top with Grated Cheese. Sprinkle with the White Pepper.

Put into a hot oven until heated through and Cheese has melted.

Serve Hot.

***

Alternative:

Tuna can be used instead of Salmon.

Other tasty things to make with Fish are: – Fish Cakes, Fish Fingers, Prawn Cocktails, Fried Fish, Fish Curry (one of my favourites) Poached Fish and Grilled Fish.

So if you do not feel like cooking any of the above just buy some Fish & Chips ready cooked and you will still be getting a really good Fish Meal.

This is my Painting of a Scary Fish!!!!

Hope you like and enjoy Fishy Cooking and Eating – maybe share a Fish meal with a friend

Almond Milk Jelly

Beautiful colours on these lovely Flowers.

Here is the recipe for the Almond Milk Jelly:

500mls. (that is 2cups) of Almond Milk (homemade if possible)

One & half Teaspoons – of Gelatine dissolved in small quantity of water

One Teaspoon – Almond Essence

Small amount – just a couple of teaspoons of Sugar if you like it sweet.

Method:

In a shallow dish – mix all together – put in fridge to set for a few hours.

I did put some cold cooked cherries in the dish before adding the Milk mixture. But not necessary – you can add a small amount of fruit if you like.

To Serve:

Today is a New Day

A Lovely Basket of Flowers to start off for the New Day.

Yes today is a New Day…. each day is different from the day before… so what are we going to do today? Let us have a think !

Perhaps we can do some cooking…… what would you like to cook today? Something different, something nice.. maybe a cake, maybe some rice, maybe a stew, let us have a look in the Recipe Book !

Well – here is a nice recipe for a Syrup Tart…. If you have never made this and you like something sweet it is very good. Can be eaten cold with Ice-cream or nice thick Cream or just on its own. Why not give it a go. It can be found on page 22 in our Recipe Book, which is available as an eBook. Will put the Link on here for you.

Here is a Poem for today:

I Just Remembered

I just remembered, did I forget to do that or – did I do it and forget that I did it?

I forget now but if I do it now and  I have already done it, that means that I would have done it twice.

Best if I don’t  do it now.  I may not have done it at all if I didn’t do it in the first place.

What a dilemma, why did I just think that I hadn’t done it, then think that maybe I had.

Well I remember thinking that I should but I wonder if I did.

  The best thing is to go and look I suppose – – now what was it that I think I forgot to do.

I can’t remember now, best to have a Cuppa and think about it later.

*****

What about the Syrup Tart then?

Psalm: 3 verse 5. I lie down and sleep; I wake again, because The Lord sustains me. (This is from the Bible)

Sometimes we are like sheep that have gone astray – but it is nice to be back in the fold and enjoy our day.

Flowers are Beautiful !

Hibiscus that come over our fence from our Neighbours garden.
They are just Beautiful – I use them sometimes
in the Basket of Flower Arrangement that I take to Church.

*****

Have you ever thought how beautiful Flowers are……

maybe today is a good day to put some in a vase or jar

to look at in your kitchen or lounge room.

They are a good talking point as well when you have any visitors

also they definitely brighten up any room.

Even One Single Flower looks great in a vase on its own.

The little drawing above is one that I did……..

you may like to make your own drawing of a Single Flower,

it is a good exercise for any of us who like painting or drawing.

Here is a Recipe for you today:

* Garlic Sausage Rolls *

1pkt. – Sausage meat; 1pkt-Puff or Shortcrust Pastry; 3 or 4 cloves-Garlic; Pepper & Salt.
