Monday, November 14

Did you have a good weekend? We spent our weekend close to home my favourite type of weekend.  
I went to the baby shower, played some fun games, ate lots too especially my cheese ball.
Then on Sunday I tidied up the veggie patch, it looks much better now, while the girls had fun paddling in the little pool.
Today it was back to the routine, a spot of baking chocolate slice and honey biscuits.
My goal for the week is to either make Christmas cards or sew presents. I want Christmas to be relaxing so I must get organised.  If I keep telling myself it should keep me motivated, I'm going to try my best.

Honey Biscuits
125g butter
½ cup caster sugar
1¾ cup self-raising flour
1 egg
1 tablespoon of honey

1. Beat butter and sugar to a cream.
2. Add the egg and beat well.  Add vanilla and one tablespoon of honey.
3. Gradually add sifted flour.
4. Mix into a stiff paste.
5. Take small pieces of mixture and roll into balls.
6. Place on greased trays.  Press out lightly with a floured fork.
7. Bake in a moderate oven until golden brown.

Honey Butter Icing
¾ cup icing sugar
1 teaspoon honey
1 tablespoon butter
Few drops of lemon juice ( I just used water)

1. Sift icing sugar into a bowl.
2. Add softened butter and honey and mix well.
3. Add lemon juice (or water) to make a smooth paste.
4. Use to join honey biscuits in pairs.


  1. Those biscuits do look yummy. They sound a little like honey jumbles. One of my favourite bought biscuits, though I don't think I've had them in a few years. Remember the uproar when Arnott's tried to discontinue them?
    The baby shower gift looks beautiful - so thoughtfully put together.

  2. That is one gorgeous baby shower gift!! I did the same thing with a gift bag for the arrival of my brother's baby. Love the white and pp together. We also had a weekend at home - something my hubby has been missing!

  3. Catherine that is the sweetest baby gift :)
    My favourite weekends are also spent close to home, indulging in the creature comforts of life.
    I am so with you on the relaxed approach to stress and low key is me.


  4. Never tried a cheeseball - on the list it goes.
    The bikkies look yummy too.
    We had a busy but fun weekend - the big ballet concert is done - now onto birthdays :)

  5. Hi Catherine, love the look of these honey biscuits. And very pleased to have stumbled across your blog.

  6. What a gorgeous baby shower gift and so beautifully packaged. Glad you had fun and enjoyed the rest of the weekend too. We recently tidied up our vegetable patch too and it's got me motivated to get planting lots more now! Thanks for sharing that delicious sounding recipe! x

  7. I love the fabric you use for the bib etc so pretty Catherine!Your weekend sounds good and I am sure you will be all organised for Xmas! :) x
