I now have 6 stacks of granny squares, and have started making the bigger squares but am not convinced that they are in the best colour choice. I aim to make a few then lay some out and see what I think then. If it is a no I will use them in something else.
I am not rushing to make these, a few in the evening once my bum collides with the sofa. I did have a night off as the driving to Cardigan put strain on my shoulder, Ben took full advantage and sprawled across my lap.
I prepped up a big tray of veg to roast on Sunday, ready for the veg tart for Monday. I decided to add parsnip to the mix and will be using half a pack of ready cooked chestnuts.
I should have made this yesterday but happened upon 2 bags of mushroom stir fry mix for 10p a pack, I also had some beef strips in the freezer that I snapped up a while ago, 350 g for £1. A dollop of my plum and chilli jelly and a glug of fig balsamic turned them into a feast for 3.
Once roasted there was enough for more than 1 meal so half of it will be used in the chilli and rice that I have planned, I will just add a little of my chilli sauce to keep enough heat.
There is rain forecast for tomorrow, I have been asked to go into Swansea, if it does rain I will go as far as my sewing room.
I see that the pundits are telling us to be ready for over 30 days of hard weather and snow, so we will get floods or a heat wave then.
I will have no issues if it does turn cold, my pantry, cupboards and freezers are and will be full. I will buy some dried milk and a few extra bags of flour and so on.
I would quite like to see some snow, it is years since I saw more than a couple of inches.
Now I am going to drink my tea before it gets cold and then take Ben out before I start to think about rolling puff pastry out.
