All my tree blocks are finished and I may have changed my mind (again) ( do I even have a mind) ( am I on auto pilot). More of that later.
I have made 2 of each of these to go with the 2 I showed you yesterday.
I decided to spend some quality time in the kitchen after walking Ben out 3 times in the glorious sun shine, he had an extra walk as it may be the last time we see sun for a few days.
I rustled these up and some more of the same that has gone to new homes.
We had roast Lamb on Sunday so I chopped some of the meat up, mixed it into some gravy with a tsp of mint sauce and made some Tiddy Oggies. I made 8 big sausage rolls the rest are in the fridge, 2 in mine and 4 in Neville's.
Some Apple Crumbles with the apple cooked to a puree, just how Francesca likes them, and Demarara sugar in the crumble for the crunch.
I had a little pastry left so made a simple plum jam tart.
A pleasant way to spend an afternoon, I have a batch of mincemeat planned for tomorrow and a couple of cakes. I have a fruit cake recipe that uses a jar of mincemeat and will be making 2 hence the need to make some more.
Reasons to be grateful.
1. Sunshine all day.
2. Watching Ben enjoying the Lamb bone.
3. All set up to sew my white squares on the strip sets.
4. Francesca has Friday off to do the last minute packing.
5. A box of goodies is on it's way here.
