Happy Easter !!! It is 8.30am - I have been up for 1 1/2 hours and I have yet to eat any chocolate - That is some sort of record !! I have been eyeing off a lindt bunny that the girls have - It is in a lot of danger.
After moving my studio back into the house last weekend it became quite clear that the room is a little compact for all of the goodies that I have.
For this reason I decided to go vertical. I re-purposed a book shelf we had in storage and painted it white. 2 other little shelves have also been given the white treatment too.
All of the shelves have been placed on tables and benches to save floor space. I now have room to display lots of my goodies.
These mini chrysantheums always remind me of easter and of bonnets - Not sure why. Each year I buy one for my easter table.
Yesterday I made some Rocky Road. This is how I make mine :-
1 1/2 Cups Unsalted Peanuts
1 Bag Marshmallows
2/3 Cup of Shredded Coconut
1 Bag Raspberry Lollies (I just buy the 99c ones from K Mart)
Family Block of Cadbury Dairy Milk Chocolate
Chop the raspberries in half and the marshmallows into quarters and place all ingredients in a bowl. Melt the chocolate over a double saucepan on the stove and then mix through the ingredients.
Spread evenly into a rectangle cake tin lined with baking paper and pop into the fridge to set.
Then cut into generous size pieces and serve - It is delicious !!
Jo and I had a lovely day stitching yesterday - We watched a girlie movie and ran out of tissues.
I hope that you have a lovely day. We are off to the local market this morning and then have Sam and the children for dinner. Hopefully I will find a little time in between to finish off that table runner from last weekend.
