Cheese Straws

Mrs U Makes...Cheese Straws, a quick and easy after school #treat @MrsUMakes

The tripolatas' birthday party has been and gone, I spent the end of July and beginning of August planning and trying out different treats. I had hoped to post the recipes up at that time but there was so much to do. Now that the tripolatas have gone back to school I can get back to baking and making recipes.

The first of these is a savoury snack, which the tripolatas have asked for several times this week. I can't express how simple these are to whip up, making them a great after school treat.

Hat's Off To Ya - Hat 1 and 2

About a week after my last post, the movement in my elbow was restored. There are times when it becomes slightly stiff, but that's mainly due to Little Miss U's night feeds. I have now started the 3 in 1 top by Atelier Alfa, the first section was completed last week. Before starting the next section I want to make the second hat in the Hats Of To Ya Kid series and also start knitting a cardigan for Miss U.
