Kate is having a little end of year party with four of her friends.


They have had fizzy, chips, lollies and chocolate biscuits.
They have given each other gifts.


They have played music and climbed the blackwood tree.
They have played on the tyre swing and climbed the rope ladder.

Now they are at the golf club pool where they have planned a giant water pistol fight.


They will be home soon, very cold I'm sure.
We are having a barbecue tea with Orange Marshmallow Cream for dessert.


250g marshmallows, cut up

1/2cup orange juice, freshly squeezed is best

3 large bananas, sliced

300ml cream, whipped.

pour juice over marshmallows and leave for 15 minutes

add bananas and coat with juice

add whipped cream and mix thoroughly but gently

Put into serving dish and decorate with a little chocolate

For lots more versions of Ambrosia salads look here,
