easter is for baking

I didn't watch the Dr Who special, I watched Primeval's mid series shake-up episode instead (good choice), and then went out to the Burton Taylor (an approximately handkerchief sized theatre) for the first time since who-knows-when for a show called "John Cage's Disco Classics" during which timscience got to pick the most beautiful biscuit and I got hit in the chest by a lemon, and then we went home in good humour. There's a fashion for going clubbing in tiny cocktail dresses this season which give drunken saturday streets an odd/posh vibe.

The rest of the weekend was more family/gardening orientated. I helped put some compost around a clump of agapanthus that had suffered in the late frosts and played football against/with a small child. There was also a lot of outright lies theorising about the Easter bunny following on from one of those questions; do you think there's just one easter bunny, or one for each country?

Also, as easter is time for baking, I baked cheesy dinosaurs. Observe their beauty!

We can say what we like about footballers and politicians...but dinosaurs are different.

I can't imagine politicians making good cheesy biscuits. Too sleazy.

But the thought of rolling them out while telling them they were being consigned to a fiery hell does appeal.

Yummy, those dinos look mouth watering!

They're Queen Anne's Cheese Biscuits but made with strong cheddar instead of parmesan.

Now that's what I call a nice simple recipe. Even dinsaurs could make it.

Dinosaurs have no time to faff about with separating egg yolks!

I'm with them on that.

Oooh thanks! I think I'd take aged cheddar over Parmesean too.

Re: debra's place - cocktails, games, dancing
I hadn't, but that reminds me I should arrange a party once the hallway is finished.

Very yummy they were, too!
Both owls and dino biscuits were smashing, but for my money the dinos had the slight edge for their crispiness...

Hey, would you mind if I featured the recipe and your pic over at my food blog, blueberries4sal? (I'd credit you, of course.

I'd be honoured.

14th Apr, 2009 19:46 (UTC)
Black onion seeds (Nigella). A few of them have sesame seed scales, too.

tiny cocktail dresses - aaaand the picture of the red shoes and the girl in the strapless dress you did for me is looking down at me as I type. She looks slightly supercilious.

That looks like the most awesomely delicious thing ever!

Great dinosaurs!

So that's what happened to all the dinosaurs ;-)
