Bring back Elevenses – Triple Chocolate Brownies!

Elevenses is a word I remember from my childhood and one I will alway associate with my mother. She was an avid baker and the house was always full of cakes, jam tarts and biscuits.

I know that we are all set and focused on eating healthily these days but I think that the philosophy ‘everything in moderation’ should apply and if you have a good breakfast , a filling lunch and a balanced dinner then an elevenses treat to keep you going is certainly allowed.

We have just started using this tradition in our house and the children get very excited about elevenses time. It is also a good way to refuel them before lunch and keep them going. Funnily enough, a lot of people think I am a bit mad when I say elevenses as they don’t know what it is, and my hubby had no idea what it was either before he knew me.

Hooray for Anchor Dairy though, as they are trying to bring back Elevenses and I completely support this campaign because it is fab!
