Tea Biscuits

I left the recipe for these tea biscuits in my booklet, instead of tearing it out. I would have forgotten what the photographs were had I not suddenly found the recipe. Just four ingredients are needed to make these so I hope you give them a try.

I have a super power! My special ability is shuffling papers around my desk. I am in the habit of printing off things that need to be done. My reason for this is that I like to make notes. And each piece of paper serves as a reminder for what need to be attended to. At present I have an invoice for two pairs of pants that I am waiting for. One will need to go back to the store, but until my online order arrives, I won’t know which one. There are booking conformations for various places we are staying at. Notes include cancellation dates as well as the deposit amount paid. I am also in the process of typing up my four training routines. I need to laminate them and make the gym look a little but tidier. This task will be completed today.

Today’s inspirational recipe from Lavender and Lime ♥ Tea Biscuits ♥ #LavenderAndLime Share on X

For a week I ignored the papers and only realized this morning that something should have been attended to on Monday! This is why I write notes, because at night and over the weekend I switch off from work. And I need the visual reminder of what needs to be attended to. Thankfully, an extra few days in this instance did not make a difference. I have set aside all the quotations for the blinds and curtains so that I can visually compare them. And I have a copy of a credit card statement where we have been charged for travel insurance that I have not yet taken up. I am still waiting to hear about our overseas trip. The last item waiting for my attention is a bill. Thankfully it can be paid off, but I would forget to do so had I not printed it.

  1. Thanks for this simple recipe, Tandy. I must confess I never write anything down. I have a very good memory and very rarely forget anything so I haven’t ever needed to write things down. I have tried to do this in the past, thinking it would help me, but I’ve never referred to the notes.

    1. I especially like to write things down when I have spoken to someone so that I have a time reference if they need to go back and listen to the call!

  2. I make lots of to-do lists for myself, too! But it really keeps me on track. 4-ingredient biscuits sound awesome, don’t need anything complicated these days! Have a lovely weekend =)

  3. Whenever I see recipes with very few ingredients, one of them is always sweetened condensed milk! The MASTER ingredient!
