Hello, how are you today? All is well down in the south, the sun has been shining for a few days which has been lovely.
I am pleased to announce that Miss G. is finally learning to cook. Sunday night is her designated night and after going through my cooking files which are basically recipes I've ripped out of magazines and put into folders, she chose to make pasties. We decided to adapt the recipe and added some lean beef mince to change it from a vegetarian recipe. We kept the vegetables in the recipe, just cut down the quantity. The recipe called for curry powder and cumin which was a delightful addition to a normal pasty recipe. We used bought puff pastry rather than a pastry made from scratch as the recipe called for. They were absolutely delicious and we all agreed we'd love to have them again.
If anyone wants the recipe, just let me know.
I made some blueberry muffins, always nice with a cuppa when the weather is cold.
Some of the Camellias in the garden have started to flower adding some much needed colour when the sun isn't shining. I bought some inside to display on our dining table.
I started joining some of my granny squares together to give myself some encouragement. I'm not a patient person and I want my blanket made and finished yesterday. I can also get a better idea what I'm doing as I've not planned this blanket properly at all.
I've just received some cotton yarn form Yarn Over to make some dish and wash cloths. Ordered Friday, received Tuesday....excellent service. Next post I'll show you my new yarn and share a recipe for the self saucing pudding I made on Friday night for dessert.
Until then, take care everyone and thank you for stopping by,
