weekend journal

The weekend is over but my word did we pack in some stuff.....

Synchronise your watches please.

Saturday am; beach (where else?), garden centre (5 blue grasses), garden (plant grasses)

Saturday pm; golf lesson (holes in one zero), op shop ($20 Royal Doulton dinner set!!!),
kitchen (re-organising shelves to house new dinner set), scrabble.

Sunday am; homemade honeycomb (remember to use a bigger pan)

melt 1 1/2 cups of caster sugar, 1/2 cup honey and 100g butter in a LARGE saucepan, keep stirring and simmering for a couple more minutes.
remove from heat and add 2 tsp bicarb of soda stirring vigorously.
be warned this is a science experiment of a recipe...
when mix is pale and foamy, we are talking only seconds of stirring, pour into a well greased baking tin and pop into freezer to set.
dip hardened comb into melted chocolate for a truly delicious sweet treat which I keep in the freezer.

Sunday pm; beach (blah, blah, blah), car wash, practise golf swing (novelty hasn't worn off yet), dvd (Look Both Ways...awesome), study (a little), read (a lot) and settle into bed (with flapjack and coffee in new(ish) teacup). Bliss...
