I'm a bit late to the party this week - everyone else who went has already blogged or Facebooked their photos. I didn't actually get that many pictures - I certainly did a STOOPID thing and didn't take any pics at my house in the evening, when we played "see how many WOYWWers you can get round Morti's table....". It was 6 plus satellite family members, in fact.... I think Jan and Donna might have got a couple of pics of that though. I'll just have to beg a sneaky snaffle of those!
I expect by the time you've got here, you're fed up to the back teeth with "wasn't it a wonderful day" kind of remarks. I'll do my version later on in this post, but as we're here for WOYWW, I'll start with my desk... (scroll to the end if you're only here for the tiffin recipe).
Absolute mayhem - I've not yet had the opportunity to put everything away from the weekend. There is however a new resident. Perturbius Strop has come to live with me from Doone's house, and she's just ADORABLE! Thank you, Donna!
I took part in the beaded tassel workshop with Janet (Fairy Thoughts), and finished mine off over the last couple of days. Such fun! I have always loved beading, and it's nice to try something new occasionally.
Fergus takes pride of place, dead centre of the photo between Helen (H) and Sam (Hettiecraft). All of us beavering away at something or other.
Queuing for the amazing lunch you've already heard about!
And just to really upset you, gratuitous close up shots of the cupcakes - top one is the Physalis cupcake (like marmite, you either love it or hate it!), bottom one is the Black Forest cupcake. To my mind, chocolate is always a winner, and these had black cherry sauce in the middle and the icing was fresh cream...... Yum!
As for the tiffin - here is the recipe as promised to many of you....
Put 225g of Plain chocolate, and 100g of butter in a large saucepan.
Heat gently until melted, and remove from the heat.
Quickly add a 397g can of Nestle Sweetened Condensed milk first, then 275g crushed digestive biscuits, and 25g raisins (optional). You can also add 25g halved glace cherries if you wish, or cranberries and nuts (whatever you fancy!).
Stir well until fully mixed.
Press the mixture into an 18cm x 28cm baking tin lined with greaseproof paper.
Chill until firm.
Cut into triangles and decorate with white chocolate (optional).
Yes, it really IS that easy to make. Enjoy! If you want the flapjack recipe, let me know. See you on the bloghop!
