Happy New Year to you all!!! I'm just lay on the airbed in the lounge at Mum trying to sit on the sofa and getting her feet stuck under the airbed, which ended up her losing her slippers! Don't you just love early morning entertainment?
If you know me well you will know that I love nothing more than giving practical gifts for Christmas and Birthdays and
this last year was no exception! We decided that we'd buy the Outlaws a bread making machine after chats with them about home made bread! (last year was a slow cooker that they just adore) ... Along with the machine, we gave them the ingredients that they would need to make one of the loaves of bread ....
... I spent a couple of days sourcing recipes that we'd like to try and made the above recipe cards using Shabby Princess Holiday Recipe Collection ... after buying the bread machine for the Outlaws, I did nothing but whinge and whine about wanting one for myself, but just couldn't justify spending that amount of money on just little old me .... So, I was
pleasantly surprised reduced to tears when I opened one from my gorgeous girls .... I wouldn't normally over a kitchen appliance, but I was feeling a little fragile after giving Mum her digital photo frame loaded with photos of Dad . I've used my machine already to make a white loaf and i'm planning on making a cheese and bacon loaf today or tomorrow!
The other recipe card was to go with a Popcorn maker for my Great Niece .... she'd borrowed mine and it so we got her one of her own ...
... again we wrapped all the ingredients for her ... even a tin of condensed milk ... that had to be rescued Christmas Eve from the Outlaws house ... DH had wrapped it and put it with all their bread making ingredients .... can't rely on a bloke to get anything right!!!
