Thanks for the good wishes .
The picnic supper was a great success. DD bought pizzas and sushi. I made Portuguese Custard tarts.
The house is very well appointed and will suit them very well.

Morning all.
Quite warm this morning. Supposed to be 1 degree but is 6.
Finding this house very dusty. Think it is the carpet.

Marina, not sure if this will help but an Auntie used to make something similar but rolled the dough in the cornflakes.
Made Portuguese Custart tarts to take to picnic tea at DD new house.
Also another pipe loaf.
Slow cooker veggie soup.
Tomorrow, visitors for lunch. We are having roast duck. Because it is difficult to carve I am going to cut it into 1/4 before roasting. We are also having a Xmas Pud with custard made in TMX .

The GC and Ral and I can certainly recommend your CC and cornflake cookies, Marina.
Thanks, Chookie, your comments are as kind as ever.  I have a query, though.  This is the second time I have made these cookies and they are easy, quick and tasty ... but, the cornflakes seem to come out tough and overly chewy - even though they were out of a newly opened packet.  Has anyone else had this problem with cornflakes in cookies?  Any ideas on whether it is possible to stop them from turning out like this?  Would it work if I were to subtitute rolled oats for cornflakes for instance?  This is the recipe I used. I guess I should also post this query onto sistermixin's blog as well but I trust answers coming up on here because none of us has an 'interest' in pushing this recipe.

Your cake looks good Cookie.  I love anything lemony so must give this a try.

A friend had his birthday today. We popped over this morning with a tiny gift and took coffee. We had to laugh as both his daughters had included exactly the same as us in his birthday gift !

I made a loaf of bread today and made some Swiss meringue buttercream and then used that to pipe some swirls and decorate a Unicorn cake that DD started yesterday. It was fun but time consuming.
