Good morning everyone, hope you are having a nice and relaxing
Boxing Day - after a very busy day at my darling Mum's house yesterday we are taking things very easy - 2 out of the six of us are still snoring away in bed!
So thought I would make the most of it and get a bit of computer time in...
As promised I can now reveal what else I made as part of my cooking extravaganza recently as everyone has received their pressies.
Little shortcake shells stuffed full of a lovely, fudgy, caramel filling - so delicious! They are cooked on the stove top using this device
A little ball of dough is put into each cavity, then the device (known as a thingy in this house) is snapped shut and put onto the stove top
This then makes little half-shells of shortcake
The sweet is a little delicacy from The Caucaus region, but is also well known in Russia and Eastern Europe. My device was bought in a little shop in Manchester by my brother-in-law - these sweets are a great favourite with my husbands family. Here is the box it came in
The manufacturer calls it a nut maker, but I prefer "thingy"!
Some more of the yumminess in close up
Not very many are left now...
I have decided to make a healthy veggie stew for today's meal, it is bubbling away in the slow cooker and filling the house with delicious smells!
Have a wonderful day, Helenxx
