Baking for a fete...

 my Mum's aged care facility held their annual Fete today so I did some baking to donate to their food stall.   I made labels for each bag.
~
 First I made 3 batches of  Anzac biscuits...
~
 ~
 Then I made Cherry Shortbreads (although these pictures are from a batch I made last week ...
~
I should call them Traffic Light shortbreads ...
~
 All bagged up - 18 bags in all  which they sold at $3/bag
~
 ~
 There was lots of food at the Fete, homemade pasties, lamingtons, cakes of all kinds... I am sure their day will be a success.
~
 Quick dinner last night was chicken kebabs 9marinated in sweet chilli sauce, garlic and peanut oil) with satay sauce and baked rice.  I just put a cup of rice in a shallow dish, add 2 cups chicken stock, diced capsicum, sweet corn, onion, peas, crack of pepper and salt.  Stir it all in, add a few dobs of margarine/butter then cover with foil and bake for about 40 minutes until the stock has evaporated and the rice is fluffy.
~
Satay sauce: 1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter, 1/4 cup sweet chilli sauce, 1 cup of chicken stock and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice.  Combine all in small saucepan and heat until just boiling, lower heat and cook for 3-4 minutes.  Remove from heat, sauce will thicken in time to serve over kebabs.

We are off to a surprise 50th tonight and we are staying at the venue so it should be a good night out with friends.
Cheers - Joolz
