Reprogramming to unwind with the clones…

The big robot is my husband’s, its circa 1975  and did work until Junior took it to kindergarten show and tell.
Not for sale.

The little model is keen to sharpen pencils, non vintage.

Good will bunting
Happy Christmas beautiful friends

My one time junior pirate [among other obsessions] is now a science freak. These are his ‘potions’. [Food Colouring and hand wash]

The Alien Gingerbread is also his invention.

The formula belongs to Donna Hay.
It has proven successful.

125g butter, softened

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup golden syrup

2 1/2 cups plain (all-purpose) flower, sifted

2 teaspoons ground ginger

1 teaspoon bicarb soda (baking soda)

Preheat oven to 190C. Place the butter and sugar in a bowl and beat with electric beaters until light and creamy. Add the golden syrup, flour, ginger and bicarb soda and mix to form a smooth dough. Refrigerate for 10 minutes or until the dough is firm. Roll out the dough between sheets of non-stick baking pater to 4mm thick. Cut out shapes from the dough using a gingerbread man cookie cutter. Place on baking trays lined with non-stick baking paper. Bake for 8 – 10 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on trays.
