Guess what’s for dinner tonight.

Standard

We bought 100 kilos of beef this week so there is no guessing as to what is for dinner. Beef!

For tonight Rick has requested Beef Wellington. So thanks to Lorraine Elliott over at Not quite Nigella I will be cooking Beef wellington for dinner.

Made over christmas chocolate balls

Standard

Ever wanted to have sweets and tasty morsels on the Christmas table but not so sure about the unhealthiness of them all.

Well today I picked up from the organic center some raw cacao powder to make some chocolate balls. These sweets look like any other  chocolate truffle balls but with a difference, they are healthy.

Choc full of oats and raw cocoa and some sucanet rolled in some raw cacao beans coarsely ground.

I am testing out some alternatives for rolling the balls for added color so stay tuned for some updates and photos.

More than tasty.

A place for every color .

With so many pencils and felt pens ect I was very excited when I came across a pattern for a holder. I adapted it a bit and this is what I came up with. A very large box with compartments for all the colors. Just perfect for any crafty person to keep it all in one place. Although I do have to say my skill with the fabric and hot glue gun is still developing.
