Into the swing of things

It's a new year (I know it has been for a while now) and everything is back on. Including working for me. I love my blog, but sometimes work, family, study all get in the way of being here.

So many people this year have shared their frustration of trying to keep all the balls in the air. I know that that includes me.

However, I did find time with my girls to try making lamingtons for Australia Day. Back when I was in high school, we had a fundraiser where we made lamingtons in the school hall. It was a hilarious combination of sponge cake, chocolate, coconut, teenage angst and the desire to make money for some high school need at the time. I remember it well. I'm not sure it would meet todays health and safety standards.

Our home version was a little less exciting, but perhaps a better product. I made sponge for the first time too. They were declared a success and promptly eaten by all. I'm not sure I feel the need to make them ever again.
