A couple of weeks ago I solved the problem of why we have never ever had a Strawberry from our strawberry patch.
Sprung, Polly Jean!
If you haven't had the pleasure....meet our Basset Hound, Polly Jean (AKA The Strawberry Hunter).
Today she is having surgery to remove a suspicious growth in her mouth.
What happens next we are yet to find out.
My eyes have sprung a leak.
GG's Voom Balls:
Yesterday I totally hopped on the powerball bandwagon.
Not the lottery type but the yummy energy food type.
Good lord they are DELICIOUS and take about 10 minutes.
Morning tea for the kids, and for me too.
My recipe is based on this one but I made a few changes.
And they are named after the secret ingredient to Dr. Seuss's fabulous Cat in the Hat's clean up abilities.
Do you reckon if I eat enough I might start being awesome at cleaning up too?
In the meantime I will be awesome at eating these.......
WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
- 400g pitted dates
- 200g dried apricots
- 200g sunflower seeds
- 100g chia seeds
- 5-6 tablespoons tahini
- 2 heaped tablespoons cacao (I used some gorgeous Grounded Pleasures African Red Drinking Chocolate powder (OMG so good!)that they gave me but ordinary Cacao will work fine!)
- 2 tablespoons shredded coconut
Blitz all ingredients in a food processor for about a minute - as this is quite a large quantity I halved the ingredients and did it in two batches.
Place a little mix into the palm of your hand and squeeze tight to form a ball.
Repeat and EAT- keep in refrigerator for a few days (bet they don't last!)
Yes our dog is named after Polly Jean Harvey.
