Baking...............

I have been baking peanut butter biscuits (cookies) this afternoon. I know they are popular, so I thought, OK, I will double the recipe, and so in went double the amount of ingredients, and I looked at the poor 36 year old Kenwood, valiantly stirring this heaving mass around, and realised that I had doubled the already doubled recipe, and so I actually quadrupled the original one. And that is probably the longest sentence in history.

The maths, people... My brain is fried, and so am I after standing there timing tray after tray after tray. I now have 3 large Quality Street tins full, and another large tin full of the Custies from yesterday.

I think most people will be getting the peanut butter ones for Christmas. Mince pies are next on the list. The fruit mince. I have already done the Christmas cake and I will put the marzipan on that one later I think. I loathe the stuff, but I think others like it, so on it will go.

Jean, Glynis and I went to aquazumba this morning. The groan as I bent to get into the water (wearing a festive Alice band on my head with red waggly stars) was heard by all. We were all wearing festive head gear, by the way. Maybe I can arrange a photo next week. I am sure they will still be about. On our heads. Tomorrow is our Aqua lunch, and that should be great fun. I will be taking the camera with me. It is wonderful knowing most of the people, and when we have been away, they are always SO welcoming when you appear again. Lovely lovely girls. Ladies. Old ladies. Young ladies. Girls will do.

And now we are off to Jean's for supper. I will be back...............

Biscuits ??? Did someone say something about lots & lots & lots of biscuits ? How did you know I'm a biscuit fiend ? Especially if they're the peanut butter variety - I'm getting hungry just looking.....

That does look like quite a lot... Still, I'm sure they're delicious.

Oh my! A counter and tins full of those wonderful creations! John was telling me a funny story about the pastor trying to give him an empty tin. (I was getting quite excited about it actually because I hoped that he had taken it.) John declined and the pastor shook his head and said he didn't know what he'd have to do to get rid of it. John told him to put some cookies in it and then he'd be interested. Don't you find that you can't have enough good tins?!

I picked up some chocolate to melt today for the Custies...and I have some red stuff left over from that too sweet snack mix. Wonder if that would look cute or just too cute by half.

Have fun tonight and tomorrow!
