baking and making this weekend.

The weather lately is certainly leaving me with a strong desire to stay inside.
I bought this great op shop curtain and cut up some panels to use as applique on these jeans - the fabric is a cotton/hemp blend.   I love how they remind of  'Annie Oakley', I was obsessed with Annie Oakley when I was a kid, and even had a dress up costume...tres cool. (well I thought so at the time!)
 So I was going to attach a cute sassy tassle on the leg hems, but then when she tried them on, I realised the length was just right.   Incredible, but true.

These biscuits are my adaptation of a Donna Hay recipe.  I added a little oat bran in the vain hope, they might make them a bit healthier!
Trust me, they are really yummy and moreish, and you won't be able to stop at just one!

Easy nutty bikkies.

125g butter
1/2 cup caster sugar
2 eggs
1 1/4 cups plain flour, sifted
1/4 oat bran
150g peanuts, granulated or chopped small

Preheat the oven 180 C.  Cream butter and sugar with electric mixer until light and creamy.
Add eggs and mix til combined.
Fold through flour, bran, and then nuts.
Place tablespoons of mixture on tray, and bake for 10-13 minutes, or until golden.
Makes around 25.

Tomorrow we are going to the TreadLightly EnviroFest at the Hobart Botanical Gardens, whatever the weather!  I can't wait.

Hope your weekend is tres happy!

  1. Cool trousers and the perfect length - maybe add a tassle as she stretches?

    And I love your new-look blog - when did that happen?

  2. ohhh these look yummy!

    great work on the pants! I like how you have done that. I have been more patchy with mine but I think this looks more 'professional' if that is the right words!
