Here in Palmerston North it is very muggy and humid.
We have had some much needed rain, our water tank was only half full.
I haven't blogged in a while, but thought I needed to do a blog post on matchboxes.
Here are two reasons why ...
Recently I received a delightful box of goodies in the mail from Patty (her link is under the QB5 group), and much to my delight amongst the goodies I found, carefully wrapped in a pretty piece of fabric, a wee matchbox.
I love matchboxes.
Don't you think Patty has made a lovely job of this one?
It is covered in paper, is very pretty and contains a secret.
One of Patty's gorgeous wee handmade bird's nests!
Thanks Patty, it's totally birdilicious :))
I also love these matchboxes .....
do you remember them from years ago?
I cut a sheet of pre-rolled flakey pastry into rectangles and cooked in a hot oven
until they puffed up and were light golden in colour.
Then when they were cool I iced them with a passionfruit icing,
and when the icing was set I split them in half and
filled them with whipped cream! (you can also fold summer berries into the whipped cream as an extra treat)
They are lovely with a cup of tea, or as a sweet treat after your meal.
Believe me I know!
Hope you are all having a stress free pre Christmas week, if you aren't,
I recommend you make and eat some of these!
