I must admit, I don't think its the ideal way to get your kids to take their meds or vitamins but it iscertainly an alternative.
When the medication makes your Kiddiewinx gag and you know they really need to get the meds in, wouldn't you rather give them something that makes them happy?
I think its ingenius!!!
Remember back in the day when you ate those dodgy but scrummy crunchies that the guy with the long hair was handing out at your big sister's Bob Marley party? You know the ones that gave you the munchies and left you wanting more?
Remember that chocolate cake with the "bits" in it that gave you the giggles? We've all done it...
Make teeny weeny muffins or bake the legal meds into a biscuit and dunk it in yer morning tea!
So, go grab your favourite recipe and incorporate your meds into it.
My Favourite McVities Biscuit Recipe
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup all-purpose flour 1/2 teaspoon baking powder 1 tablespoon rolled oats 4 tablespoons butter 4 tablespoons brown sugar 4 tablespoons milk (replace 1 of the tablespoons with your meds)
Preparation 1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets. 2. In a large bowl, sift together the flour and baking powder. Mix in the oatmeal. Cream together the butter and the sugar and add to mixture. Stir in the milk until mixture forms a thick paste. 3. Knead dough on a floured surface until smooth. Roll out dough to approximately 1/8" thickness. Cut into rounds with cookie cutter about 2 1/2 inches in diameter. Transfer to cookie sheets and prick with a fork. 4. Bake 15 to 18 minutes, or until golden. Let cool on wire rack. Store in an airtight tin.
Don't forget to share your meds in a treat recipe with me. Looking forward to swapping drug recipes...
The theme was "shades of blue" and every one went all out and dressed up, which was awesome. I love dressing up puting on my glitter make up, GHDing my hair, putting on a dress with stockings and heels. It makes me feel like a different person. Someone glamorous!
The party food was amazing, the dancing was funky, the friends were great and the hotel afterwards was brilliant!

After the party, my Boerewors and I decided to check in to a nearby hotel instead of driving home after having half-a-dozen too many shooters.
We had an awesome time thanx to the Grayston Southern Sun.
