Slept in - no vodka needed

No I'm not trying to rewrite War and Peace. Just trying to break a years worth of being head teacher administration and waking at 5.30 to receive calls from sick and worn out teachers.  I was threatening to start drinking (at 5.30 in the morning) but, alas, it was not needed. 

Yesterday and today I managed 7.00 am with no problems at all.  Might have something to do with the FREEZING weather we are experiencing down this way at the moment.  Not that i want to become a slug - I have always enjoyed getting up early - I just don't want to be a slave to habit. Anyway I slept in, got up to fatty, lavish breakfast of bacon and eggs,  did very little exercise and made a new and delicous batch of chocolate chip biscuits (cookies???)


The recipe is:
1/3 cup white sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
125 gms butter
1 egg
vanilla essence
1 1/2 cups SR flour
1/2 cup white choc chips

1. Preheat oven to 180 C and line trays with baking paper.
2. Melt butter and combine with sugars.
3. Add egg and essence and mix well.
4. Stir in flour and chips.
5. Place teaspoons of mixture on trays and bake for 12 mins.

Hope you enjoy them as much as L did.  Good study food.

  1. looks yummy - now if you had offered more of those around the school yard I'm sure that the number of truants - both students and teachers - would have dropped dramatically

    hope you enjoy your time away from the pressure cooker (aka the job)
