Just five days left before bear goes back to school.
Today bear spent in his pyjamas, chilling in the dining room and watching two seasons of the Pac Man cartoon. I didn't let him help with dinner (turkey rather haphazardly marinaded in yogurt, next time I'll use a proper recipe) but we did bake some chocolate grantham biscuits that were a fail on a galactic scale. However there are some potholes in the road that need filling and the biscuits will be better than stone chippings.
I should have known. The recipe called for 4oz butter to 16oz sugar to 14oz flour to 2oz cocoa to one egg. I've lost the recipe I had for them which wasn't like that at all. In the recipe I used to use, you ended up with a crumbly, fragile and toothsome ginger biscuit. These were supposed to be the same crumbling, delicate and spicy morsel but chocolate. They really weren't. Bear couldn't manage one. I begrudge the waste of ingredients.
I'm sure I'll find a good recipe tomorrow.
