I made a batch of whipped shortbread to take to school,
it's report card time and the staff are running low on energy...
I like to surprise them with treats in the staffroom...
Do you perform random acts of kindness?
This shortbread is about as fast and easy as it gets
You will need a reliable mixer, preferably one with a stand...
cool on a rack
these melt in your mouth
line the tin with wax paper
carefully place one layer of cooled shortbread
alternate with another layer of the wax paper
until the tin is almost full
to avoid breaking the cookies
remember to take a break and pace yourself
you'll feel much more energetic :)
recently blogged about a great hostess gift
inexpensive and lovely.
Tiffany crystal votive
While shopping I came across battery operated votive candles
who knew they made these?
Now I will not be concerned that Pepper might burn herself
The company claims they last for 100 hours
and replacement batteries are available.
I will be relaxed about leaving this "burning" while I am not in the same room.
I plan to have several of these in various locations throughout the Bungalow to add ambiance.
A post from last year with my mulled wine recipe
easy and inexpensive to make
great for casual gatherings
or ice skating
you could serve it to the adults
while the children sip cocoa.

8 things about me...
1. My middle name is Anne...
mother when annoyed with me linked the two names together "Leslie-Anne"...
when I heard her call I knew I was in some kind of trouble!
2. The new Hawaii 5-0 is my new current favourite show on TV... James Caan's son has a lead role.
3. I was born tonque tied and had to have it "snipped" so I could suckle more efficiently.
4. My favourite Beatle was and is Paul McCartney
5. I was a member of the Barbie fan club and Junior League.
6. I played the flute in the school band.
7. I once ran away from home with nothing but Teen magazines and some cake mix in my suitcase!
(I got as far as the corner)
in my sleepy neighbourhood everyone knew everyone and the woman of the house called my mother to report my whereabouts and to say I was sitting in tall grass reading Teen and dipping my fingers into the cake mix package...
8. I am not good at laundry...we send Mr. HB's shirts out to be washed and pressed.
I hope that you laughed a bit here...
when writing some of these obscure tidbits
so how about it
care to share 8 things?
