Hi. I bought 10 hours of dial up so at least I can access the web while we are on holidays…and why else would I want to access but to post a blog or two.
We are on holidays – BLISS!
We all went to Forrest Beach for a picnic lunch yesterday but the beach was closed due to Crocodile sightings just beyond the stinger net (No. I hadn’t already eaten too many Rum Balls). Oh dear – where are those crocodiles when the lifeguards can’t see them? No wonder property at Forrest Beach is still so affordable! Apparently, the beach here closes at least six times a year due to crocodile sightings.
In lieu of swimming, Boy and I made Rum Balls to give as Christmas gifts. This was a really simple and educational activity. While mixing and rolling the Rum Balls, Boy and I talked about Crocodiles, why people drink rum and what happens to a person’s brain when they get drunk.
Here is the Rum Ball recipe in case you want a really simple and fun activity in these days leading up to Christmas.
2 cups of Weeties (crushed)
2 level tablespoons of cocoa
1 cup of chopped raisins
2 tablespoons of rum
1 tin of condensed milk.
Desiccated coconut for the rolling of the balls.
Mix all together and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Make small balls out of mixture.
Roll balls in coconut.
Simple, easy, fun and YUMMO!
