Good morning everyone. As always, I hope you and yours are well. Here's hoping that high pressure makes an appearance along with the sunshine again.
You will be relieved to know, the onions are now safely in their jars, phew!!!
Trust me, nothing would delight me more than shop bought jars of good old Haywoods but Mr Duck has always loved home pickled and when his Dad passed, I (in a moment of madness /kindness. . . . . delete as appropriate) said I would continue the family tradition. Note to self. . . . engage brain before mouth in future lol !!!
Thanks for your tales of your homemade goodies. I do lots of baking throughout the year as I love cooking and read cook books like novels. My Christmas cake for this year was cooked last year and is in the freezer. I do a Nigella Christmas cake and it freezes fabulously so every other year, I cook two at the same time and freeze one.Its mainly because I'm tighter than a ducks oojit and figured that if I'm having the oven on for the best part of three hours, it may as well be worth it.
I love watching the Great British Bake Off but the problem is Mr Duck keeps saying "Oooh, you haven't made that for a while" or "That would be nice to try" Case in point was the choux buns on this week's episode so guess what I'm doing at the weekend. In fairness, they are easy peasy as I do mine with just fresh cream as a filling and choccy ganashe on the top.
I hear you cry "Why don't you let him do it?". . . . . because I like my house and don't want it turned into a charred ruin lol !!!
Gee wizz, sorry I've waffled on, back to the important stuff . . . . . . .
Maggie, welcome back. Hope Mr O'Leary didn't stitch you for any excess baggage.
Sue (Snowqueen62) good luck with all that decorating. It made me feel tired just reading about it. I like making lime curd but its a shame it has to be eaten up so quick.
Annie, I'm not sure about Oz having the best fish and chips, unless you have a British chef of course hahaha !!!
Now, today I'm showing the other four cards in the box set. I did them the same way as the one on the previous post only I masked different bits to get different patterns.
I also did a little stamping on the flaps of the envelopes just to snazz things up a bit.
Have a wonderfully marvellous fantabulous day and lets be careful out there !!!
