So, my one post for this week will have a bit of everything in it.
Here we go.
Recipe for this week was absolutely delicious.
It is an almond and vanilla cake...sooo good.
I made double recipe and tweaked it a little
3.5 cups almond meal
1.75 cups dessicated coconut
2 cups organic raw sugar
I melted 1.5 bars of butter(about 400 grams or just under) cooled
6 very large eggs
A huge gloop of a teaspoon of vanilla paste
Mixed the wet together.
Mixed the dry together
Mixed them together and placed it into a lined tray.
Sprinkle as much slivered almonds on top as you need to.
The oven was preheated to 180(fan forced)
I cooked it for just under 50 minutes.
I had a piece hot with sprinkled icing sugar.

Also this week, I got. Ahead start on the next prompt word for the 52 Week Illustration challenge was "bucket list" . My immediate thought was to do a picture of me getting ready to travel. My first journey coming up soon, heading to Bali for my nieces wedding. My irrational fear of flying will have to be placed aside and I am actually heading off in a plane. 😱
I am also a firm believer of marriage equality. So a little #watercolour was done ...
I have nothing on the homeschool front...the twins have been so incredibly sick...
That's about it for the week. If you are visiting from ppf, I appreciate your lovely comments...you keep me inspired to paint and draw. Thank you.

Until next time
Lots of it
