Kitchen goodies

Well, I think that was the fastest disappearing week ever.
But it was a lovely one and quite healing for both myself and Rebecca.

Friday saw us in the kitchen most of the day, we made two different flavours of lip balm, one lavender and mint, the other lime and mint, lemon and ginger cordial, lemon curd and a lemon meringue pie.

This made me smile too, obviously something kids don´t grow out of

We then went on to make our lovely supper
Fresh prawn salad - actually this had a double effect not only was it delicious but one of our furries, Amber, sometimes get very sore skin and we have found giving her the prawn heads helps clear it up, omega 3 perhaps

then it was monk fish in a garlic, onion and tomato sauce, ugliest looking fish,

 but we cheated and bought just the tails

The meringue disappeared in a flash too

Saturday saw us attending the grand opening of the new secondary school of Lady Elizabeth as VIP guests,
 Antoni´s mother was the founder of the school 32 years ago when she had just 2 pupils,
certainly has grown since then
Then off to the airport :-(
They are funny places, either happy because you are meeting someone or having an adventure
or really sad when you see someone off.
Only 71 days to go before we meet again
Not that we are counting or anything!

take care

    1. Hi Ellie, only a couple of pots of the curd left now, but we were invited to help ourselves to more lemons, must slice and freeze some xcx

  3. such a special time for you both and doing fun things in the kitchen... Oh gosh yes that fish is something else... I just love lemon flavour. I didn't realise Antoni was from that area... how lovely to go to the school his mum taught at

    1. Wouldn´t like to come across that fish on a dark night! lol. Antoni´s Mum was head of the growing school until about 15 years ago xcx
