Ice-cream party

I scream, you scream, we all scream for Ice-cream mmmm. Would you have an ice-cream party? I couldn't mainly because I cant keep it in the house without devouring the lot so there would be nothing left for the party! But it's a great party idea or even baby shower idea!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Catch the ice-cream in the cone!! Love a party game.
 
 
 
 
 
A gift for the Mum to be or just someone you cant decide what to get.
 
 
Deco's - burlap and two pom pom's.

Strawberry Mint Mojitos mmmmm

Its starting to warm up here in sunny Perth and these look just the thing to enjoy with some friends on a summers evening.



 
To make the strawberry mint mojitos you will need:
 
-Fresh Strawberries, large punnet
-Mint leaves
-Soda water
-Rum
-Limes
-Sugar or truvia

First gentle squash the strawberries with the sugar then add to your pitcher. (if you have a pestle and mortar this works a treat!)
Next, slice limes and trim your mint leaves. Squash or gentle bash the mint leaves with lime juice.
Add to pitcher. (You will want to make extra batch so you can easily just add to pitcher when you run out.)
To finish, add 1 cup of rum, 3 cups of soda water and ice. Taste it to make sure it tastes okay. You may need to add more soda, rum or lime juice depending on your taste.
Garnish the glasses with mint leaves and sliced strawberries and then stuck them in the freezer for 15 minutes to get a frosty glass.

Teeny Tiny Gingerbread houses

How cute are these little guys? I think we may even give it a go a little closer to Christmas, they would make cute pressies for the kids at school.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Mini Gingerbread Houses
Ingredients:

500g flour
200g honey
120g caster sugar
120g margarine or butter
1 egg
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 package( 20-25g) of gingerbread spice or 3-4 teaspoons homemade gingerbread spice

Directions:

Mix flour with baking soda.  In a pot heat: honey, sugar and gingerbread spice until the mixture will become more liquid. Set aside so it cools slightly. Pour warm honey into the flour. Then add butter diced into cubes and an egg. Mix thoroughly with a spoon and then knead with your hands to smooth dough. Shape into a ball and wrap in cling film. Put the dough into the refrigerator  to "rest" for 5-10 minutes.

When the time passes, remove the dough from the refrigerator, split in half, re-wrap one part in a cling film.  Second part roll with little bit of flour (or between two sheets of foil) till 4-5mm thick and cut out any shape you want. If you want to cut out mini houses roll the dough to a thickness of 2-3mm and then use the template provided to cut out all needed parts. Do the same with the second part of the dough.

Preheat your oven to 180 C. Place gingerbreads on a flat baking tray lined with baking paper or silicone mat keeping the distance. Before you start baking you can spread gingerbreads with beaten egg and decorate with nuts or dried fruits. Don't do anything for gingerbread houses.

Bake 7-9 minutes according to the thickness and the size of your gingerbreads. 4-5 minutes should be enough for mini houses. Gingerbreads should be slightly gold. The darker the colour, the harder your cookies will be. Store in an airtight container, up to a few weeks. If they become too hard:  remove cookies from the tin day before serving.

Building houses:

Cold parts of houses glue together with royal icing. Ready gingerbread houses set aside for a few hours to dry and then decorate. Keep in a tightly closed container.

Strawberry Picking

Last week I took the girls Strawberry Picking, they had a blast and while pretty grubby by the end, the trip home was focused on Madam 4&1/2 deciding on what we were going to do with all those strawberries!!




I popped some pics on facebook and have had a huge amount of emails with regards to what I did with them. So here is the list and I apologise to anyone who does not have a Thermy because that is what I used but with most recipe's they don't seem to hard to do in another machine, I am certainly not doing anything fancy pants!!
