We returned from the UK to a few days of snow – beautiful.
The village caretaker/hero, clearing the roads.
We’ve been trying to introduce cups and water. Early days, early days…
We have also spent a lot of time hiding
Someone is a better cleaner than his mama
Saturday treat – mini chocolate beignets
Ahem – another treat. These cocoa brownies really are chewy, fudgy heaven.
Progress! Will accept water from glass if held for him.
Apple cake for family Sunday lunch. Delicious, but completely fell apart out of the tin. Oh well.
We spent our Jubilee in Scotland visiting my Daddy, brothers and sister.
It was a lovely weekend and baby did ever so well in the car for 7+ hours each way! The good ol’ Scottish air helped him sleep well at night too Magic!
My Daddy loves good food and had saved a few recipes that he wanted me to make for him. We started with Raymond Blanc’s Apple Tart from his BBC show.
It turned out very well the first time (I made 2 in smaller tins than stated in the recipe) so we decided to make 4 more for the Jubilee party we went to with his neighbours.
The only change I made was to add vanilla bean paste to the custard filling. Delicious!
I also made a chicken, leek, mushroom pie. Recipe soon!
Hope you all had a lovely long weekend
