Today I have managed to bake quite a lot, even though I have been quite busy with other stuff, too.
I wasn't going to bake bread but changed my mind after I'd checked on space in the freezer, so in the oven went a half wholemeal, half white loaf and six rolls.
The tins were getting a little empty so it was time for a cherry oat bake which is always a winner with the boys and Jon. A pal of Jon's is coming to stay over this evening so wanted something to go with a brew, too. I think he may be watching his weight but not in my kitchen today!
This copy is not the one from the library but a copy very kindly sent to me by Sue at The Cottage At The End Of The Lane. Thank you again, Sue.x She saw I was having trouble finding a reasonably priced copy online and as she had picked this up in a charity shop decided to send it to me. How very, very, very kind was that?
One of the things I planned to make were Welsh cakes, simple ingredients really; I have made them before and they were a bit too biscuity....
however these have come out a lot better.
I plan on giving them to our next Airbnb guests as part of their breakfast along with our boiled eggs and my bread. I also took some to one of the Welsh ladies who works in the village shop as I had told her I was making them; she said they were good.
I went into the garden this morning and picked a few goodies.
The herbs are oregano which I put in the dehydrator yesterday. They are done and I have sage in there at the moment. I hope the weather is good at the weekend as hope to put some gherkins in to keep for use at a later date.
So for lunch I was able to have a green salad of homegrown things. How cool is that?
Oh yesterday I used up the last cooking apples and stewed them for the freezer.
There was enough for two small crumbles, to add more fruit to or to have with ice cream etc.
