The Children's school holds regular 'afternoon tea' for each class in turn. The idea is that parents bake cakes for it and then buy the cakes to have with their tea. So, yes, it's a money-making con!! ;-) This term the Head decided to try a 'fruit and healthy snacks' theme for the tea instead of cakes. I made some sugar-free jellies with fruit set in each: red grapes in blackcurrant jelly, green grapes in lemon and lime, mandarins in orange jelly, and peaches in raspberry. They were a great success :-)

For dinner that evening the recipe jar told us to have mushroom-stuffed chicken pastry parcels. I had a go at making potato and carrot rosti to go with them but I should maybe try a recipe next time! It all tasted good though :-)

I remember making orange jelly with mandarins segments in for the little boy I used to look after - but my Jake would just pull a face of disgust so we don't even bother! I love the look of that potato/carrot rosti so I'm off to google a recipe - thanks!!
