Horray !!! I can report

Yes !! I can report that today's morning tea was fairly healthy ... with cheese and biscuits, cucumber sandwiches and sausage rolls  plus of course the inevitable cakes but I was able to dodge them.

BUT there was a great fudge slice ...  the  lady who made it was there and I obtained the recipe, so I give it to you, not a good one for the waist or hips ...  sorry.

1 Can Condensed Milk
8 ozs Butter
6 ozs Brown sugar
1 pkt Rich tea or wine biscuits or any plain biscuit really
4 ozs chopped Apricots ( dried)
1 oz chopped Crystallised Ginger ( optional)

Melt the butter, sugar and milk in medium pan
Stir in crushed biscuits and Apricots and ginger if using.
Pour into a greesed shallow dish to cool
Place in fridge until set

You can ice the top or sprinkle with coconut before it sets you can also add chocolate to the milk if that is your choice ... you can also change the fruit to suit your taste.
Can be made ages before it is required .... will keep for a few weeks ... If the family will allow it.

I expect most of the Kiwi's who read this will say ... had it many times ... so we will ignore them and it is for all my friends overseas ... hope you enjoy it.

I love your gentle spirit Laurie, it shows in your writings. I miss seeing you, thanks for the recipe. I have one to send you for a lovely chocolate cobbler, I know you and I don't want to eat all that kind of stuff, but there are those who do, I'll send it via email to you.
