Busy, busy, busy...

I cooked up a storm today...sausage rolls - tick, meringues - tick, mars bar slice - tick, thai chicken balls - tick, palmiers - done. Under construction...pumpkin slice & profiteroles. Tomorrow I should get just as much done & I feel much more organised. I wonder how my sister will feel about whipping up Jenny's jelly slice seeing as how Jenny is in Qld & not available for catering assistance.

Erin was up for helping me & got to enjoy assistants privilege - licking the beater & the icing bag!

Hayley is rehearing in a 20 piece orchestra for the local theatre group's production of The Mikado. She has been playing the flute for 11 years now & has played in many productions. After yesterday's rehearsal she came home with a ....glockenspiel! Apparently playing the flute is not enough this year & several of the musicians were given glocks to play for an authentic Japanese feel.

With a bit more practice it should sound really good.


  1. what makes you think jelly slice will be my forte? I don't have Jenny's recipe...

  2. Wow..I need you in my kitchen..never sees so much yumminess in one day..except may Christmas :)
    Good luck to Hayley with her traditional Japanese music

  3. Holy moly, that's a lot of cooking? Care to share your recipes?
