Date slice that is...
My friend Brenda asked for my date slice recipe...
It's actually Valerie's recipe with a few changes on my part. Here's the original recipe:
Valerie's Date Slice
4oz/125g melted butter
Mix butter and sugar together.
Stir in 1 beaten egg.
Add 1 cup of chopped dates
And 1 cup of self raising flour
Spread in greased and/or lined baking dish/tray and bake at 350F/180C for 15-20 minutes or until cooked and slightly browned.
Lynda's version: I only used 100g of brown sugar and substituted some of the flour with ground almonds. I also added some cardamom, allspice and ginger to the mix.
For Yarn Along this week...
Decided to work on some crocheted baby blankets. Quite a few of the ladies in the Mennonite church are having babies soon, so doing one in cream/blue/yellow, but will also do a cream/pink/green.
And I found this little bear pattern HERE, so thought I'd make some to go with the baby blankets, and also they would be a good size to go in the Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes, and the pattern could be easily adapted to be a little doll too. I'm a bit late for this year, but can make a start for next...
Browsing and enjoying this book about Beatrix Potter.
Lunch time...chicken soup! Then some crochet time with a cup of tea, and some letter writing.
My head (migraine) is not too good today so am having an easy, inside day.
Enjoy your day!
