hi all nosey people out there
Well there's my desk as instructed by the fab JULIA over at the stamping-ground.
But I'm not telling you about this desk this week,.it's a bit boring
I am going to show you my kitchen table and something very, very special, well it is to me and all my family.
These my friends, are going to be an amazing piece of edible art. (please note my tongue firmly in my cheek)
Have you heard of 'the marmite effect'.. . . . love it or hate it.
These are a huge family tradition, my 3 girls grew up on them, I have been eating these since I was the same age as my Granddaughter Erin (9 months) , so I thought it was time she tried them.
Above is the first stage; shortcrust pastry rolled out quite thinly, spread on marmite. (veggiemite)
Sprinkle with grated cheese and roll up like a swiss roll. Then cut into slices, lay them on a baking tray and cook for about 20 minutes (gas 5-6). If you like marmite you'll love these, If you don't, well..... you'll hate them
The only problem we have is waiting for them to cool down enough to eat.
You know how we all push stash to the side out of sight, well this is what's on my left this week.
I think the jury is still out don't you! LOL.
Anyway here is some stuff I made earlier in the week.
The first card is for an American friend, just to show we can fly the flag in 2012
I made this frame at the weekend . . . just because I had time.
The frame is covered in Croco paint. The acetate is inked with alcohol inks and the image is set back from the frame using sticky pads.
Well that's enough from me, I will pop by to look at your work space later.
I think blogging and WOYWW has the marmite effect too. . . . . . . .I think you all know what I think!
See you later
