We then had my sisters' chilli jam or my homemade chunky barbeque sauce to put on the steak sambos. How is that for homeliness? We all enjoyed them very much!
I was much looking forward to my sister and her tribe arriving for afternoon tea - haven't seen in almost two months! I had pre-made some things like Ms Butterfly's Banana Cake - which I simply took out of the freezer yesterday and iced this morning. I had also some cookie dough left over, so took that out of the freezer and made jam drops with both the peach jam I made a few weeks ago and the new batch of strawberry jam I made last weekend. I made lemon pistacchio biscotti yesterday and after lunch today knocked up some quick dairy-free choc muffins keeping in mind my neice has a dairy intolerance and my sisters' family tries to follow vegan practices as much as possible.
So without too much effort, had quite an afternoon tea spread too! It was lovely to see the cousins together - with 5 girls within 3.5 years age gap it's an excitable environment!
Eva and Maya have grown so much! Since we hadn't seen them in song Eva has developed into a full-blown toddler and Maya has shed any trace of baby-ness that was left... a real little girl there.
