Medway Ladies do tea

This afternoon our garden room was the venue for tea with some of the Medway ladies, they had been shopping for quilting fabric at a local craft shop, so I invited them to call in on their way home.  They arrived in torrential rain, I was trying to sweep water from the carport due to the water barrels overflowing, it was raining so hard the ground just couldn't absorb it quick enough. 

We had tea and homemade cookies, discussed local news and debated whether the Cambridgeshire Guided Busway would ever make any money when it finally gets underway - 7 August is D Day, or will it be a huge white elephant?

Chocolate Chip and Cranberry - here's the recipe incase you'd like to make some

110g butter
110g caster sugar
110g light brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla essence
170g plain flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
150g chocolate chips - which ever sort you fancy
85g cranberries

Preheat oven to 190c
Beat butter and sugar together, add egg, vanilla, then mix in flour, salt and baking powder. Mix in chocolate and fruit.
Line 4 baking sheets with baking paper, using a teaspoon put walnut size balls onto sheet leaving plenty of room to spread. Makes about 24
Bake for 10 mins, allow to cool for a few minutes then transfer to a wire rack.

Enjoy with a cup of tea or with a dish of ice cream - yum

Tomorrow is WIP Wednesday so check in and see what I've been knitting.
