okay hands up who knew custard creams (the biscuits themselves, not the filling) are made with custard powder...
i swear this isn't turning into a cooking blog, i mostly wanted to share my excitement at our latest purchase: 101 (really!) cookie cutters in every shape under the sun, from lakeland - i only slightly wanted to show off my biscuits ;)
when the parcel arrived thismorning we played guessing games about what could be inside, M spent ages getting in through the tape and unpacking the box. we got every single cutter out and pondered over what it was supposed to be, we counted all the numbers and went through the whole alphabet, she spent half an hour or so acting out convoluted stories with them, we eventually made some biscuits. then she spent the rest of the evening occupying the
box boat they arrived in with an assortment of stuffed toys. tomorrow we may get round to decorating them. now that's what i call play value :D
