This is probably my last post of the year, Im catching up with all the photos I have stored on my phone! I have been so sick this month, back to the Dr again this week because my throat was bleeding after last weeks surgery - but its ok and I got more painkillers.
Anyway, onto fun things these eggs are called "laid in eggoli" which is cute because its a play on the word "egoli" which is the other name for Johannesburg
Some savoury biscuits I baked for Sos,
- the ones with cheese in the middle are : Cheese Pinwheels
- the ones with fork prints are: Gruyere & Parmesan Allumettes (link takes you to the book the recipe is in, page 85)
- the ones with green bits: Pistachio Sables (click for recipe)
Some lovely gifts I got from friends at school, I actually saw this scripture plaque on display somewhere and thought it was so pretty and wondered where I could get one - so I was thrilled to get this!
And a keyring and beaded sugar spoon
closeup of the beaded bee - I just loved this!
Emily & Ben decorated their doorways for Christmas, these were cut out of magazines and attached to the doorframes with prestic and magnets
Ben took his a step further and put a warning sign at the door
This jam was from Irene Farm. Don't you just love the handpainted fruit on the lid! Each flavour had a different picture painted on the top, this was Raspberry Jam
And I was very surprised to see wax on top of the jam! I have only read about this in old cookery books!
And finally, wax removed, there was a delicious jam underneath!
Finally, I found this lovely tin of rusks at PicknPay earlier this month, Sos loves eating rusks with his morning coffee.
But take a closer look at the artwork ... its knitting that is unravelling! Isnt it beautiful!! Just for me :)
