Inspired by this post at Little Gumnut, I went hunting for some glass bowls at the op shop that I could use to pop some Christmas treats in for the kids teachers.
Imagine my delight when I found these great APPLE shaped glass bowls. 6 of them for $12 - perfect. Then a local op shop happened to have one too (as I really needed 7)
So I made three different types of fudge (Russian, Dark Chocolate, White Choc.. recipe to come) and popped them in the bowls then popped them in a cellophane bag with a tag.
The tag idea was from this apple tutorial (she uses it to put in a frame.. but I loved, LOVED this idea). Some of the apples I used to make cards for the teachers/principal I wanted to write a big message inside.
This year for my two eldest's teachers I made them an apron each and bought them a recipe book. Donna Hay Chocolate for Mrs N and Gluten free four ingredients for Mrs S (who like me cannot have gluten)
things are a bit slow around here at present. I have had a cold/flu for 10 days and I am not gettting any better. It turned into a chest infection straight away and I am on my second lot of antibiotics (which my poor tummy hate!) and taking all sorts of herbal remedies - olive leaf, horseradish, vit c, garlic... and yet Im not getting better. My ears are blocked and its like listening to people talk underwater, my chest hurts, my temperature keeps spiking... and I just want to sleep - all the time ... I am so frustrated as nothing is getting done for Christmas!!
