Apparebtly, according to dd I have had a fail...
Tried a new mudcake recipe last night.
Dh had a piece and loved it.
I had a piece and rate it but would probably cook it a little less time.
Dd has a piece looks at me says "its a littke bit ok, but not really good ok. Definitely not your best work"

Another massive fail for me was growing tomatoes. I gave them love and seasol and water, but they shrivelled up and died.
Recently I found a little plant growing out of the rocks in my path to the clothesline. A few weeks later it had tiny cherry tomatoes growing (must have been a seed dropped in bat poo). I got all excited and said to DH 'oooh, I'll replant it in my vege patch'. He said 'NO! don't touch it, you'll kill it!'. So I have a random cherry tomato plant growing very happily in my path rocks.
Not a cooking fail (although I have plenty of those too) but took DD to a walk in dr clinic, the receptionist asked for her birthday and I had no idea - thought for a while and remembered the month and gave a day that seemed right (that I later realised was wrong), then she says 'what year' (in a real snotty tone) and I had to count backwards because I wasn't sure.
In my defence I had been looking after a very sick child alone for 3 days, with two other children also and I was extremely sleep deprived.
I have also forgotten my age, how to spell my son's name and various other simple things I should know due to lack of sleep. It's a wonder I function at all really :/
Just realized when vacuuming the car that one of the carseats seatbelt wasn't done up....from last week! Oops

Basic Biscuit from Cookery The Australian Way
1 cup (150g) plain flour
1 cup (150g) self-raising flour
1/2 cup (125g) butter, margarine or dairy blend
1/2 cup (125g) caster sugar
1 egg, beaten
1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
2 tablespoons (40ml) milk (for glaze)
1. Set oven at 160C. Brush or spray oven trays with oil, or cover base with baking paper.
2. Sift flours
3. Cream butter and sugar. Add egg and vanilla essence, mix well.
4. Add flour and mix into a firm dough.
5. Lift onto lightly floured surface, knead until smooth.
6. Roll to 5mm thickness
7. Cut into 48 shapes and place on tray. Glaze with milk.
8. Bake at 160C for 10-15 minutes until pale biscuit colour. (I prefer them to be slightly underbaked, as it makes them nice and soft-ish)
9. Cool on wire rack. Leave plain, ice or fill with butter icing.
** Chocolate variation
Follow recipe for basic biscuits. Replace 3 tablespoons (30g) plain flour with 3 tablespoons (30g) cocoa. Roll out and cut with biscuit cutter, or shape into balls and flatten with fork.
Firstly that is the recipe to a t. I have NO IDEA why 1 cup is 150g and half a cup is 125g.. I have always thought 1 cup to be 250g which then logically a half cup of course would be 125g... I think when I make them I just use my cup measure and ignore their weights and quantities.. if it's too dry I add a tablespoon of milk.
I often make the mixture, halve it and then add cocoa to one half, and use a little bit of milk if it's too dry. I then either marble the colours together, or I make checkered patterns or swirl patterns using both flavours. Yum

This is my first attempt at a 14 inch mud cake for my friends wedding. Thankfully the second attempt worked well and there was a white fondant covered cake on the table at the wedding last night.
Oh another one I just remembered I'm a shocking gardener I try but it just doesn't work I kill everything the last plant I planted was going well until my cat decided he didn't like it and started to pee on it and rip big chunks of it off to 'play' with lol needless to say it died think I will just stay away from the garden from now on
