Baking Day

Do you have days when you spend most of your time in the kitchen baking away to prepare for the week ahead?  Today I had one of those days with no plans and the girls happily playing it was a good chance to get some baking done. I really like trying simple new recipes and cooking for my family, I feel like I've achieved something productive,  I only wish I didn't have the clean up afterwards which can sometimes takes as long as the cooking.  After many dishes today I baked a couple of sweet and one savoury dish for the girls lunches.   So in their lunch boxes this week will be:

* Chocolate Biscuits with Chocolate Icing (sorry I can't find the link)

I found this site today when I goggled ideas for lunch boxes.  There are lots of simple and child friendly recipes there to fill their lunch boxes and yours too.

The sun seems to be disappearing here now and it's cooling down, Winter is on it's way and I love snuggling up. What do you love most about Winter?

Have a happy Monday

  1. That Kid's Recipe site looks great Catherine, have bookmarked it to check out properly later. It's fun having a big cook up and seeing all the yummy things you have prepared for the week waiting in your fridge :) I don't like the clean up part either.

  3. Those cookies look divine. I don't do biscuits. They scare me like bread does (yes, strange, I know).
    But I like the idea of making chocie bickies for my son. He will love that treat.

    Def spend a bit more time baking in cooler months also without a dishwasher the clean up can be painful :)

  8. Oh yum! Those biscuits look deeelicious. I'm a bit like Sonia... biscuits and bread are a bit terrifying. Baking days are normally scones or cupcakes or big cakes here. Our freezer is empty so I think I'll whip something up tonight. gxo

  9. I hope that there were blogs suggesting recipes when I had 4 lunch boxes to prepare every morning for 4 hungry children! The 'Ham and vegetable slice' would be nice also for my lunch!

  12. Oh yum - I'd like one of those biscuits right now!

    Like the look of that easy loaf too! Might have to be a morning tea option instead of lunchbox as Goose doesn't eat any kind of dried fruit! Grrr
