Normality Resumes

Visitors went home yesterday,
Now back to normal and peace and quiet once again falls over the ranch again.
We had a trip to beach on Saturday 
 digging holes and making sandcastles

 Sol was his element

 A bit of rock climbing
 back home again and little one had fun with a empty box
 My daughter wanted me show her how to make Scottish Tablet, something from my childhood and hers, she had tried but it never came out right. 
As it happened I had the ingredients in 
We got started

 and it came out perfect
 They had a box of it to take home with them, I will pop a link over on the recipe page made with butter, condensed milk and sugar its not one for those watching there weight.
There is a few things going on this week, tomorrow Sol and me are making are special trip out will post about it later.
Martin wasn't home this week end work commitments but he will be home on Wednesday night and bringing and teenage grandchild with him.
I hope to have lots of good things to share with you this week. 😀

  3. I am going to give that recipe a try. I have been trying to make it from my Mum's recipe but have failed miserably. Thanks for posting it. Looks like all the family had fun on their visit.

    1. Its easy to do but its when you beat it until it changes colour that it becomes a tablet

    1. Its the beating of the mixture that changes it from a fudge

  5. Sounds like you have had a lovely week with your houseful of family. They have certainly had fun. I will pass on the Scottish Tablet making as I need to get back to losing weight again. I loved the way you took the grandkids across the field with a torch, and then got them to turn it off! And they SURVIVED!!!

  6. Looks like good family time. All kids love a good box. We've still got one from christmas but it's getting smaller as the wife and I keep pinching bits off it to light the fire!
