Melomacarona (Greek Honeyed Biscuits)
and a trip to Greece!


Oh my god, if only you knew how frantic things are around our household right now. I would love to describe the mayhem going on here but I don't have time! We leave in about an hour to get on a plane headed for Greece and I still haven't finished packing!

This is not like me at all but it's been one crazy week with work and getting things organised for the trip. Oh believe me when I tell you I can't wait to be on that plane with a glass of Bailey's in my hand. Yes, daggy old Bailey's, but that's my tradition. Bailey's on ice, on a plane.

So here I am, as promised, with part three of my commitment to write three posts for the blog before leaving for Greece (with an hour to spare!). But I'm sorry to say I'm going to have to leave it there – I have a plane to catch! Oh but you won't be spared of my usual eighteen paragraphs of rambling that easily. During the flight I'll be writing all about these beautiful Melomacarona biscuits that I made for my sister who will be house sitting and looking after our cat while we're away.

For the next four weeks Tony and I will be spending time with family on the Greek island of Limnos, holidaying in Santorini, shopping in Athens, and sightseeing in Singapore, and I can't wait to write about our adventures of this trip. In the past I would blog for my family and friends, but this time I can also share these stories (and of course, recipes!) with my new friends of the blogosphere :). How fantastic is that!

"Yeah I'm just finishing up now, Tony!!" (he just realised what I was doing!).

Must go! But see you back here in a few days time, from LIMNOS! xxx

  2. I love these honey biscuits I am absolutely going to have to make them. Thanks for posting the recipe. Have a lovely holiday in Greece researching all those traditional vegetarian recipes you'll have to post when you get back.

    1. Yeah, that was pretty crazy of me - Tony almost died on the spot when he saw me blogging at the eleventh hour!

    1. We are having a lovely relaxing time so far, Christy. It's so warm and peaceful here - a welcome contrast to the chaos we were caught up in just before getting on that plane!
