Christmas gifts wrapping event: today (10.12.20) we met in Maggie's cafe at QMU to wrap and distribute the boxes of shortbread, donated by Walkers, for students who will be remaining in halls over the festive season. We were all suitably socially distanced and masked when necessary. Each box was wrapped individually with a card. The card was of a hare as these remain around the campus, and were signed by Lindesay as President. There was a sticker in each card offering seasonal greetings and best wishes from the QMU Graduates' Association with the link to our webpage as well. The wrapping volunteers worked well and all were done within 1 and a half hours.  Alice, the ResLife co-ordinator, in halls was delighted to receive them and said the ResLife team were all very excited and delighted about the whole idea. She will distribute them to the students before the 25th December. Our thanks to Maggie's staff for assisting in a wrapping venue and lending us their trolley to deliver the parcels.

Coffee zoom tattie scone challenge: following a chat one coffee zoom day, when several Glasgow Cookery school recipe books appeared , it was suggested we had a tattie scone

challenge for the next coffee get together. Here are two of the results : firstly

Kathleen's using 4oz.mashed potato and adding half an ounce of butter. I added 2

oz.s.r.flour plus a good pinch of salt, gradually to the pan mixing with a wooden

spoon then poured 1 fluid oz.milk in to make the dough soft elastic just as in

scone mix. I rolled it out quite thinly then cooked on the girdle about 5mins.

turning half way.

 

 

Now Jonathan's - who started this whole ball rolling! His recipe is from the Traditional

Scottish Cookery book - Potato scones - 1lb mashed potatoes, 4oz approximately plain

flour, salt.  Mash potatoes until quite smooth, adding a little salt. Knead with flour to

required thickness. Cut into triangles. Brown both sides on a girdle or frying pan, pricking

with a fork to prevent blistering. Serve hot, spread with butter.
