Where oh where

Standard

Did my rocky road post go? Can you see it? Cos it’s not listed.. And I posted it today, I know I did! Bugger.

Well, until I work it out.. A friend of mine who works in agriculture showed me this picture from a work book he got from a seminar.. Apparently there really is a difference between normal water and holy water, molecularly speaking.

Rocky Road, Yo!

So it has been non stop raining all week, just in time for school holidays. Awesome. To compensate for the lack of amazingness occurring due to the weather, M has been bundled off to the farm for a few days, where even though it is raining, there is always something exciting happening. Animals need to be fed, babies are being born, fences need fixing, cows need moving, rain hail or shine.
While he has been away I have been incredibly bored, watching non stop cartoons and eating spaghetti on toast.
This morning we woke up and there was a bit of blue sky peeking out from behind the clouds, so we decided to head down to the shops just to get out of the house. And for some reason, we ended up back at home with all the ingredients for rocky road.

Rocky Road
500g melting chocolate
1/2 cup chopped glace cherries, halved
250g milk coffee biscuits, roughly chopped
2/3 cup of baking marshmallows, halved

Melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl in the microwave. Cook on med for 3 mins, stirring every minute.

Stir through the biscuits, cherries and marshmallows until well combined.

Press mixture into a small slice tray that is either greased or lined with baking paper.

Place in refrigerator for around 2 hours or until set. Slice into small squares.

Yum yum. Just had to test out a piece of course. I wish I had put in some peanuts, maybe even some coconut. Oh well, next time.

Had to reblog this amazing discovery, backed up with real live scientific facts and stuff. Makes me look suspiciously at my youngest, wondering what other science stuff he has been withholding from me.
