Hello! - I can't believe it's the end of another week, where are they going? Thanks for your comments about the parents' meeting - all went well thank goodness. There is always a sense of anticipation which is so silly really, but anyway all done for 6 months!
This weekend sees lots of cooking and knitting teddies! We have some friends over on Saturday. They are great to cook for as they are so enthusiastic about food and eat with great gusto.
I thought I would cook Spicy Meat Gumbo from Jamie's America
I've not done it before but it seems like a hearty dish so we'll give it a whirl.
For pudding I'm doing Spiced Apple Bread and Butter pudding. A fairly bulky dish following the gumbo but I think it'll go down well.
Whilst flicking through CL yesterday my eyes were drawn to a couple of recipes which are worth giving a go - Christmas Rocky Road - a guaranteed favourite in our house. I've never made it using jam.
( Sorry about the poor picture quality, the light is awful today.)
The other recipes look equally scrummy.....
Hubby bought home some Sainsbury 'try something new' recipe cards yesterday. I'm a great fan of these as they are quick, simple and more importantly don't cost the earth to make. The wicked carrot scones, and the banana bread and custard pud are ones I'll try first - can you tell I've got a sweet tooth?!
I hope everyone enjoys the weekend - I'll be back next week with my very first giveaway!!!!! so tune in then.
