Blueberry Cookies

MPs Blueberry Cookies

HISTORY:
We were gifted four of these precious homemade biscuits by a lovely Lady (MP) who lives out Ravenshoe way.
They were delicious, but had something in them we couldn’t quite work-out…

MP kindly shared her recipe, and due to the rainy weather and flooding around the Farm – which prevents the majority of outdoor activities – today the recipe has had its maiden voyage at Strigidae Farm.

Hot & Moist

. We’ve had a couple of weeks of extremes on the weather scale… This time last week we were in the midst of a deluge, and were out in said deluge digging drainage trenches, and watching our 10kg doorstep float away!!

They stayed at the house in town, and have been doing some wonderful work for us while they visited.

There has been a lot that they have achieved over the last fortnight

Jammin’

. Today we’re rockin’ it out – and we’re jammin’….! Strawberry Jammin’ that is 😀 Yep – you can buy home-brand strawberry jam for super-cheap at the local supermarket, but when you read the ingredients on the back of the jar/tin, it can definitely give you a case of the willies, wondering why allllll that … Read moreJammin’

You’ll never guess…!

. We know you’ll be stunned to hear this – but we’ve had more rain! Almost a fortnight of constant drizzle if truth be told, and the odd day of sunshine that we saw prior to that, was definitely fleeting. But thats the usual way of winter up here in the North – but then … Read moreYou’ll never guess…!

Dame Washalot

.

Today it was time to whip up another batch of Laundry Liquid, although we still have about 4L left from the last batch, but we’re getting a bit sick of the empty containers cluttering up the kitchen bench, so rather than throw them out (GAH!) we’ll fill them back up, so that they aren’t taking up ‘wasted’ space somewhere.

AND – as we’d said that we would post
