This week has been a big one. I was away with 3 of my 4 sisters for a sports competition, which was wonderful fun in a really beautiful spot of NSW, Shellharbour. We went very well, two out of the three days of the comps we were the winning team. Lawn bowls is a fun game to play for young and old, and just about everyone you meet has a smile and a tale to tell. I thoroughly recommend giving it a go.
The Anzac biscuits came about after eating a delicious dinner cooked by me, and thinking a sweet little nibble and a cup of tea would be perfect, so Anzac biscuits are quick and easy to whip up, and I seem to always have a variation of the ingredients in the cupboard.
One cup of oats
One cup of wholemeal plain flour
One cup of shredded coconut
One cup of very losely packed brown sugar
125 g unsalted butter melted
Three big dessert spoons full of coconut syrup(mix into the melted butter)
About 60 mls of boiling water and then stir one teaspoon of bicarbonate soda into it and then mix all the wet ingredients up well.
Plonk that into the dry stuff, mix well and dollop spoonfuls onto a lined baking tray.( I used 4)
I cooked at 175 for about 12 minutes.
I may have over cooked them.
There are loads of variations of these and I really think you can never go wrong with them.
And now I relax. It’s been a hugely emotional week, I am sure we have all felt it…innocence lost. My comfy Mother’s Day socks are on, heater going, watching a movie and enjoying my Anzac biscuits and a cup of tea, I think I will turn off social media for a day or two after I finish this post.
Until next time
Lots of it
