Other doings in the kitchen so far today include using up the hard leavings of a baquette and the last few slices from a value loaf. I sliced and chopped them into croutons, tossed them with some tandoori spice and a little oil, then cooked them in a pan until crispy. They will keep in an airtight box for a while and I’ll use them sprinkled on soups.
Mike’s goody box was almost empty, so I did him some oaty biscuits. Put some sultanas in this time. He scoffed two handfuls before they had time to cool properly. They are now safely stored in the tin, out of my way, before I scoff loads too.
A couple of days ago I found a nice top in a charity shop, but when I tried it on, it was obviously supposed to be a dress. I tried it with leggings and over jeans, but it just looked all wrong. So in a bit I shall be chopping a few inches off the bottom and making it more the top I thought it was. It is a good colour for me and the visible zip up the back is a nice feature, I shall be ready for when the weather really warms up 🙂
