dull day... so lets have fun!

Well today the sun is hiding... that is good as its winter time, so its time to stand in the kitchen and get creative with the oven on warming up the place!!!  the only splash of colour outside is my bougainvillea bush in full bloom, even the ocean has a grey look today.




As we are on the move its time to get in to the pantry... might I say that is a big pantry that is rather full of food! (that the chef of old coming out)  I have to have lots of food around just in case the army drops by for a feed. LOL


I got creative with a packet cake today! look what it turned in too.......
this was a chocolate cake mix!...
this is what I did:
mix the cake as normal with 3/4 of the liquid that it said on the pkt. then I folded in 1 cup coconut, 1 cup macadamia nuts, and pkt of red cherries - roughly chopped the nuts and cherries
baked in mod oven in a slice tin.. when cool ice with chocolate icing.
Its delicious ..................

Well while you have the oven on never miss a hot oven to add something else... another pkt cake that was in the pantry!
this time it was a Apple Crumble Cake - so I just made these as small individual cake and we will have these for sweets with hot home made custard  and a lashing of cream- tonight and for a few nights to come!




Here is a pic of my panty! well can only get a pic of part of 2 shelves... think I might be doing some cooking in the next few weeks ......................
