Morning my fair blogging friends:o) (Fair as in fair-weather, but as you're always here in bloglang, fair blogging...see? :o)
Hope this post finds you all fine and dandy :o)
There has been a fair bit of cooking going on in the little tiny household, so I thought I'd have a bit of a tell, and pop in down in my lil' ole' blog for memories sake.
The cooking hasn't all been being done by me, so it makes me extra proud to put the makes down for posterity :o)
First up is the most gorgeous Butternut Squash and pesto tart/quiche thingy.
It's the nicest quiche/tart thingy that I've ever made up -if I do say so myself :o)
Wholemeal pastry with a handful of chopped nuts baked blind. A layer of pesto on the bottom, then baked, mashed butternut squash, then the eggy, veggie, herb mixture on top.
Then next up are wholemeal sponge cakes..
They taste gorgeous with pure cane dark brown sugar in the mix..
A bit of dodgy icing..
A pretty shop bought wafer flower, and yummy :o)
And last but not least, the one I'm proud of..
A gorgeous Lemon Tart made by my eldest daughter..
Under the grill for ten minutes to melt the icing sugar...
And devour with a dollop of (very expensive!) clotted cream!
Oh, it was divine :o)
An extra gorgeous treat for us!
IMPORTANT NOTE: None of the above are any good whatsoever for your waistline, although highly recommended for your taste buds :o)
If any of you would like the recipes, just say, but I didn't want to just post them for fear of boring you more :o)
Crochet wise, I'm still plodding on with my monochromatic green afghan.
But I've also started these..
Pink and black striped hand warmers for my youngest daughter.
They whip up in about an hour, so are easy and fun to make :o) (Unless you're doing a different stitch than trebles or doubles)
And here's one for you memory.
Remember 'The Darling Buds of May' ?
A very young Catherine Zeta-Jones..?
But saying that, she really doesn't look much older now a days does she?..
And one I had to take the other day was when I switched tv on in the early hours, and a re-run of the 'Liver Birds' was on!
Don't tell me I'm the only one who remembers them!
And not only were thay crocheting, but one of them was wearing the most funky crochet top :o)
It made me smile, 'specially with that collar!
I'd also just like to say that I'm still having trouble commenting on peoples blogs.
I'm reading them, but when I go to comment and have written it, blogger just swallows the comment and leaves the comment box blank :o(
I still haven't worked out how to fix this, so until then please know that I'm still with you, I just can't show you I am :o)
A few off the top of my head are:
Little Blue Mouse
Crafty cats corner
Jumbles and pompoms
Scarlett loves Elvis
And several more, but the names escape me at the moment.
So Hi to all of you :o)
Have a great weekend if I don't speak to you before, and take care,
Love Donna xx
