Yeehah! Wild West Party

Last night we had our long awaited "Wild West" themed all went brilliantly and was great fun! We had put lots of effort into turning our kitchen into a saloon bar, complete with 'Wanted' posters, cacti, and signs to the 'goldmine' and prairie!  Everyone turned up in costume and we hope they all enjoyed it!  

My brother had bought a games consul with karaoke - so that added to the evening! I do love to have a good sing!

We served up bbq food and nachos (and lots of beer!)  I made some lovely chocolate orange brownies - here's the recipe (thank you Jamie Oliver!)

Bloomin Brilliant Brownies
250g unsalted butter
200g dark choc
80g cocoa powder
65g plain flour, sifted
1 tsp baking powder
360g caster sugar
4 large eggs
optional: zest of 1 orange

1.  Melt the choc and butter over a pan of simmering water
2.  Mix the flour, cocoa, baking powder and sugar in  a large bowl.
3.  Mix in the melted choc and butter - beat well.
4.  Add the eggs and orange zest - beat again
5.  Pour into a baking tray and cook for about 25 mins at gas mark 4.
6.  Eat ... yum yum yum!
