In the garden

Not much to report going on here. Just all the usual stuff. Actually got out in the garden this afternoon. It flipping needs it. It’s got to the stage now where I go out to do some tidying up, get overwhelmed by the sheer hugeness of the task, don’t know... read more

A number of books

Went to U3A book group yesterday. I sort of enjoyed the book we read, but it was a bit of a ghost story and I’m not too keen on those. I did, however, buy a new science fantasy book in Waterstones when we were in Newcastle and am enjoying it hugely. It’s a... read more

Tomato flavoured sparkling water rolls

Made the carrot soup for Mike’s lunch today (I’m back on the diet and had something different), and some tomato flavoured rolls to go with it using the sparkling water loaf recipe from a few days ago. This time I used the same ingredients as for the... read more

Back to reality

We’re back from our break today and back to the real world. Back to the gym tomorrow too, and it will be interesting seeing what’s happened weight wise over the last week. I’m actually looking forward to getting back to the rhythm of gym and diet and... read more

Away for a few days

We’re away for a few days, well, a week in fact. First stop was my Mums on Saturday for her 89th birthday. She’s doing really well (hello Mum – waves), and lives with my sister in a little village near Northampton. Then Sunday we drove 20 or so miles... read more

Lentil flour and the simplest bread I’ve ever made

I was looking round the Internet last week, as you do, and came across lentil flour. What’s that, thought I, sounds intriguing. I started off with lentil flour and ended up with a loaf made with fizzy water! What I hear you say? That’s what I thought too.... read more

Dead Good Old Tarts

This recipe was given to me by a friend, although, I must admit, she didn’t call it Dead Good Old Tarts. The name just popped into my head when I was wondering what to call them, so Dead Good Old Tarts it is 🙂  I have been looking at ways of using up bread for a... read more

A kitchen experiment, Pea-Crumb Fritters, 6p

Did one of my very favourite things today and had a play in the kitchen and ended up with these pea-crumb fritters. Have been thinking about doing some kind of frittery thing using mushy peas for a while now. Had a little Google and a look around t’internet.... read more

A lovely day in the sun

It was a beautiful sunny day this morning, so Mike and I went off to the coast for a walk. We parked up at the swimming pool end of the Eastbourne front and walked all the way to the other end. If you don’t know Eastbourne, that’s a flipping long way,... read more

Chapatti, muffins and a warm salad

chapatti Had a lovely play in the kitchen yesterday. Made some chapatti using some Approved Food flour – do you remember those huge, massive, giant bags I got ages ago? Yes, I’m still using them. Chapatti made with chapatti flour rather than wholemeal... read more
