OMG wat a mess I have managed to make today...much to the kids delight - and to think I was once a 'cook' PML
it all started when I made some little chrissy choccies and melted way too much choccy so the Jake and his 2 friends helped clean the bowls - no complaints from them!
then I blew up the food processor! smoke filled the whole kitchen... oops! all I was tryin to do was crush some biccies for rum balls...that made for some entertainment... they were all giggling so loudly and 'bashing' the air to clear the smoke
so how do I crush the biccies now, oh I know, I'll put em in a bag and bash the crap outa them with a rolling pin - well... that was untill the bag broke and it all went flying everywhere!!!
the kids are now have a layer of cookie crumbs ontop of their smokie chocolate covered faces!but it gets worse!
me and my clever ideas...
I decided our rum balls needed to be more chrissmassy so I got out the food dye! red n green coconut sounded like a good idea till I started it...
my hands now look like a christmas tree!
oh and let me tell you bout the trifle! hehehe
I forgot to buy some Sherry so Bicardi it was, one for me one for the trifle, one for me one for the trifle and on it went!....
red n green jelly was the first disaster!
I thought I would pop them into the freezer to help set them a bit quicker, good thought till I swung around from bench to fridge and spilled half of it all over the floor!
so what can I put in their now to replace half the missing trifle???
LOTS... it now has 11 layers! oops...
I got a little carried away! looks awesome but...
and the mars bar slice looks (and tastes) darn good!
so not a total disaterous day...except now I gotta go do all them bloomin dishes!
man I made a mess....
good thing its the silly season after all! LOL
ok, back to it I go, just had to sit with a cuppa and recouperate after all that
