The almond blossom came out in full whilst we were away, always stunning
Now though it has been replaced by the leaves
Rebecca found a recipe on line for chocolate chip cookies, which she made and they were delicious and certainly didn´t last long.
Inspired by her, I made some too, but as chocolate chips are difficult to come by here and expensive when you do, I used block chocolate and just chopped it up, some bits were a little larger, but that just made them even nicer in my opinion as they melted and turned gooey. We both cut the sugar by half and I had to cut the chocolate by 30g and used what I had, still came out yummy.
There were several bread crusts left over so I used these to make a bread pudding, but added a little more spice
I treated myself to a browse in the newagents whilst away and bought a couple of card/paper magazines. One was quite expensive, but it did come with a book of decoupage pages and loads of different coloured pages, along with sheets of stamps. With lots of ideas to encourage you and also very useful web pages to explore in the end I think it was worth it.
This one was half the price, but still had templates and stamps, enough to explore and play for a while
When we returned on Thursday evening I was in time to place my grocery order online, in fact I could have got it delivered Friday, but decided Saturday would do. It´s great to order all the water and heavy goods without having to shop for it and then lug it back and the guys are so accommodating. So I think it´s turkey curry tonight
