This weekend for us, was all about food and drink! Despite the hot weather I wanted to give work a rest and spend time in the kitchen, so Friday afternoon was spent helping the boys making some apple and cinnamon scones which turned out reasonably well, apart from the fact that they were slightly flat!
Whilst flicking through some recipes I spotted an easy, quick one for Strawberry and Vanilla jam - you can imagine where we went on Saturday - the good old PYO and got ourselves 2 baskets full of them.
I had some blueberries left so added those with the strawberries and the seeds of a vanilla pod - my, my, it did taste good. The subsequent jam recipe, I just used strawberries and vanilla sugar. It went down very well with the scones and a glass of Pimms later in the afternoon!
Not having fulfilled my quest to bake, I set too, making some Lemon Meringue cakes filled with lemon curd. Anyone fancy one?
In the evening we all went to a Golden Wedding Anniversary party which was lovely. I did partake in a little 'dancing' (embarrassing my 10 yr old at the same time!). Well, I did have half of my body weight to burn off after consuming rather a lot of cakes!
Sunday was just spent doing a bit of this and a bit of that and a Pimms or two!
Boys have now been dropped off at school so I'm off for a huge cup of coffee to see me through the day.
