Witty Wednesday # 125 Maxine and Pantyhose

In case you wondered I'm still alive and kicking!!!

When I opened an email from Daffy and read this I burst out laughing. Embee wanted to know what had amused me and I told him he would need to wait for WW to see what Maxine has been doing!

I was in the restaurant yesterday when I suddenly realized I desperately 
needed to pass gas. The music was really, really loud, so I timed my 
gas with the beat of the music.

After a couple of songs, I started to feel better. I finished my coffee, 
and noticed that everybody was staring at me............

........Then I suddenly remembered that I was listening to my iPod!!!!!!!!
Pantyhose Riddle

Q: How many animals can you fit into a pair of pantyhose?
Now, think about it...

Scroll down,

10 little piggies,

2 calves,

1 ass,

And an unknown number of hares,
Keep Smiling :)

Barbara's Oat Biscuits (Cookies)

Last month my friend Barbara, winosandfoodies who is a brilliant cook and just happens to have been featured as 'Cook of the Week' in the Courier Mail, Taste magazine section,
mentioned a recipe for Oat (Cookies) Biscuits and how easy they are to make. I'm always looking for easy recipes so I decided to give them a try. My first mistake was not taking another look at Barbara's picture of the biscuits to remind myself not to over cook them. Also I think I might have been a little generous with the golden syrup as it was the end of a tin!!!

However, even overcooked they make a delicious crispy snack with a cup of coffee!!

I should mention they are not for those on diets, except maybe for the oats!!


150 grams sugar

2 tablespoons golden syrup

150 grams butter

2 tablespoons milk

150 grams porridge oats

150 grams self raising flour


Heat oven to 180C

In a saucepan - melt sugar, syrup, butter and milk over a low heat until dissolved.

Add oats and flour, stirring well.

Place teaspoons of mix onto baking paper lined tray.

Bake 10 - 15 minutes.

Allow to cool for 5 minutes before removing from tray.

So Barbara, sorry not to have done your biscuits justice, I will make them again and hope to get it right next time. You can see why I would never, ever, be featured in a food magazine. I might, just, get a mention in something like this though !!!!

Witty Wednesday #124 Maxine Tip and Signs for Modern Woman

Daffy sent me another Maxine Tip and it's one I must remember! LOL

Always keep several
get well cards on the mantle...
So if unexpected guests arrive,
They will think you've been sick and unable to clean.

I should get some cards up quickly-I could write my name in the dust on my glass shelves!!!
These signs 'For the Modern Woman' made me chuckle (also from Daffy)

Have a fun day and keep smiling Spring will soon be here!
