Sunday – I am not sure what meat we will be going with this week, I will see what is on offer at the butchers

I also wanted to give you the recipe for the almond shortbread biscuits, as they are very simple to make and really good for children, as you cant really over handle the dough:

150g of plain flour
25 g of ground rice or ground almond
100 chilled butter
50g caster Sugar
almond essence
tea spoon of milk
Cut up the butter in to small chunks and rub in to the flour and almond/ground rice
Add other ingredients and squeeze them all into a dough
Sprinkle top with flour and roll out to 5mm thick
Use cookie cutter  and place on a baking tray.
Cook at 170 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes
Allow to cool for 2 minutes and then lift on to a wire rack to cool
You can add lemon or orange zest and two teaspoons of their juice rather than the almond essence and milk.
