A Creative Life

Happy Sunday and today is ….

…. National Puzzle Day.

I love puzzles, whether it is a jigsaw, a crossword, a logical puzzle   Its a good way of chilling, learning and using your brain more.

I have just completed an excellent jigsaw puzzle by Ravensburger and you can see my review here.

This weekend i had the grands for the day on Saturday.  They love cooking with me and its a good thing to learn them both.   We made white and plain chocolate shortbread.

Here is my recipe.

PREHEAT OVEN GAS MARK 4

INTO A BOWL PUT THE FLOUR BUTTER AND SUGAR AND RUB UNTIL BREADCRUMBS.
