Had dinner earlier, then took Becky to dance. While she danced I walked. Then got home ready for pudding of apple crumble!
A good book and a good coffee, what more can anyone want? xx

Had vegetable soup (shop-bought but a great new organic range) for lunch today with black bread.

PS. Made cranberry sauce for the first time last night. I don't need it so I froze it. The supermarket had lovely fresh cranberries so I couldn't resist. Found a good and easy recipe, so I'm sure I'll make it again. I also made chicken loaf (from minced chicken) for the first time. I made new to adjust what I did as it was a bit heavy.

We took Nathan to Primo (restaurant(?) chain) and I had pasta carbonara. Feel stuffed!

Porridge as it's freezing here at the moment. I need it as fuel before I go and walk the dogs! Brrrr!

Today I found Tim Tams at the grocery store. I remember someone metioning them on this thread so I had to try them. Delicious!!! I had some with a nice cup of my favorite Darjeeling tea this afternoon. I also had the most delicious German Gingerbread cookies that I found at Trader Joe's. A decadent afternoon for sure!

And tonight I'm cooking cornish game hens, roasted cauliflower with gruyere cheese, fresh baked bread, and pumpkin flan for dessert. I took today and the rest of the week off so I have time to cook and play! I'm putting my new Kitchen Aid mixer to good use. I love it! It has completely changed baking for me!!

LOL! I was the world's crappiest pastry maker - really! Then I got a Magimix. Now I make perfect pastry in 20 seconds flat. Having a mixing aid/food processor does really aid the baking process doesn't it and makes it a pleasure. I went to have a look at Kitchen Aids to see what kind of animal they were. My Kenwood Chef is very similar and I use it mainly for whisking egg whites these days and use the Magimix for the other workhorse tasks - same difference in their functions but the Magimix is quicker at the pastry.

Just finishing a cup of Celestial Seasonings Gingerbread Spice Holiday Herb Tea. Yummy - I've never thought about ginger tea before.

My young very sweet neighbor boys brought over a box past Saturday in sympathy - silly silly me tried to make a quick jump over the plastic dog barrier lying on my hardwood hallway but I caught a toe on the edge and feet went skidding. Next thing I know, I've fallen hard on the floor and am staring up at the ceiling. Very ouch. Kinda like getting tossed off a horse.

You may all call me Grace now. :rolleyes:
