Music Notes 16-02-2020
Francis Ridley Havergal (1836-1879) who wrote the lyrics for the hymn ‘Take my life’ was one of the many women hymn writers of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The hymn is a dedication of oneself to God and reflects her many talents: hands – she was a fine musician, feet – she was an athlete, voice – she was a well-known speaker. The hymn also mentions silver and gold, however she once said: “I never spend a sixpence without the distinct feeling that it is His, and must be spent for Him only, even if indirectly”. #a mighty girl!

For the dog who has everything, (including an owner with time to spare), here is a recipe taken from the book, “Cooking For Your Dog” by Ingeborg Pils.
Honey Dog Biscuits.
5oz (150g) whole wheat flour
5oz (150g) porridge oats
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 oz (30g) butter
2 tablespoons honey
3 fl ozs (100ml) milk
Flour for dusting
Mix flour, oats and baking powder together thoroughly.
Add the butter in small flakes, plus the honey, eggs and milk. Knead together thoroughly.
Preheat the oven to 400F, (200C). Cover a baking tray with baking parchment.
Roll the dough out about half inch (1cm) thick on a floured surface. Cut out round biscuit shapes. Place them on the baking tray,
leaving some space between them. Bake for 15-20 mins. Turn off the heat and allow the biscuits to dry out for a further two hours in the oven.
(Surprisingly there wasn’t any recipe for Rough Wuff Pastry!)
