Brownie Heaven!

At our meeting on Wednesday, Helena led us in a brownie tasting session with additional baking assistance from Ruth and Alix. 

We all went away safe in the knowledge that there are many, many types of chocolate brownie in the world, but avocados should probably never be used in the icing of them! Perhaps in the WI we're sticklers for tradition, but the pecan brownies and the raspberry brownies were the successes of the evening, and some of the more 'healthy' options (as well as avocado, we had date & sweet potato, among others) were not such hits!

Next month, in a bid to burn off the extra calories consumed this month, we're having another go at Morris Dancing.

July Monthly Meeting, Wed 15th July

Wednesday 15th July, 6.30pm

Chocolate Brownies

How Weird is my Brownie? (now there's a question for you!)

Not content with large amounts of butter, chocolate and sugar in your brownies? How about adding beetroot? Or sweet potato? Or even black beans? They're all veggies, so it must make the brownies healthy, right? Come along and try some weird, but wonderfully tasty, brownies, and learn the recipes. Got your own favourite/strange brownie recipe? Bring some along, and we'll have a taste-off!

Brownie eaters as well as bakers are needed for this chocoholic's delight of a meeting. Please note, LWEWI is not responsible for any weight gain caused by this event (although as we all know, cakes baked by someone else are calorie free!)
Come along from 6.30pm to 8.30pm, Upper Vestry Hall, St George's Bloomsbury (entrance on Little Russell Street), free for members and first time visitors, £4 for everyone else. Never been before? Email us on londonwestendwi@gmail.com for more information.

Craft Club update

At Craft Club in July we did some knitting under the watchful eye of Nicky, who taught us how to knit these funky squares. Safe to say some of us were better at it than others!

If you want to try for yourself, the pattern is below.

At our August craft club (first Tuesday of the month), we're going to have a go at quilling, having been inspired by the Wimbledon poster. It doesn't matter if you've never quilled before, none of us have done very much of it, so do come along and learn with us!

Queen Square Fair, 4 July

LWEWI would like to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who baked, made jam, sold our goodies or came and bought something at our stall on Saturday, in the glorious sunshine. After costs, we took an amazing £200, which will go towards costs for our WI.

Next up, Phoenix Garden fair in early September.
