head in the biscuits

Adam was talking to me earlier this week and randomly threw the word biscuit into the (one-sided) conversation.

I said "huh?" and he said "aHA! I knew you weren't listening!" 

It's a bit true. I'm all about the biscuit at the moment. 

And so, as I make small inroads into getting our bikkie website up, I'm looking at the draft photos I've taken of some of the bikkies and I think, they are quite lovely looking biscuits if I don't sound too big headed saying so. 

I thought you might like to see them.

Yes, I crack myself up. It's very sad. 

I'm missing two of my favourites, the biscotti and the Handsome Jam Sandwich. Will get them tomorrow!

Hope you are having a lovely week, lovely folk. And I apologise if I seem distracted, it's not personal, it's just half sugar crash, half brain overload. Nothing a good strong coffee won't fix. 

(As soon as we're underway here, expect a post on detoxing?!)

Also, anyone know anyone who builds websites? I think I need to outsource!

Your biscuits look divine. I know the good people at digerati ( let’s build a website) – tell them I sent you.

So inspired Fi! I have a natural tendency towards cake (no rolling/shaping required!) but seeing your bikkies has given me a nudge to get those baking trays out. Are you open to receiving favourite biscuit recipes? Mine are brown sugar meringues … a slight molasses flavour with a burst of roasted almonds inside. And gluten free of course!

And you can never have too much sugar! When it all seems too much, bring out the cheese … a savoury biscuit perhaps?

Hi Fi, looking great! My cousin Graeme does websites and seems to be quite good at it from what I gather – if you haven’t found anyone let me know and I can get his number for you if you’re stuck.

I am VERY looking forward to our sampling weekend if that is the direction it is going to take! xx J.
