How are we all doing in this crazy first week of lockdown due to Covid-19? There has been a lot of “Why”s and “When”s type of questions in this house. The kids are doing fine, in a way they seem to quite enjoy not being dragged out of bed every morning to go to school. However they do miss their friends a lot. It goes to show that school is so much more than learning, as the socialising part forms a huge part of school life.
One thing I noticed is the amount of snacks they go through in a day. “What can I eat?” is quite up there with “What can I do?” in terms of frequency. I try not to use “whatever you like” too much for both questions. Hence this recipe is a life-saver!! It answers BOTH questions! “Let’s make some biscuits to eat!”
Remember, this is a base recipe. Meaning you can adapt to your OWN taste! Add a tsp of ground cinnamon, or add some raisins / currants / chocolate chips… the possibilities are endless! Enjoy and keep smiling! 🙂
