There’s been a distinct feeling of Spring in the air the last couple of days; white clouds in pale blue skies – such a change from miserable grey skies – mild temperatures and fresh Spring breezes, which encourage opening doors and windows and letting that air flow through the house. While I love Winter, it’s been so nice to see sunshine and have the house open.
Friday sewing was at mine, and something I’ve been longing to do all Winter, and thought that as Spring seems to be just around the corner I’d better do, is to make bread.
I have to say, I’m inordinately pleased with how my loaf turned out! I’ve been addicted to The Great British Bakeoff (and can’t wait for this year’s to programme here!), and decided to try one of Paul Hollywood’s bread recipes. (Ooh that man is good eye candy!!). So thanks Paul – I hope he’d approve!!
To go with my bread, I made the girls’ favourite Chicken and Sweetcorn Soup
I also made Anzacs and Velvet Muffins (chocolate and beetroot)
As to sewing, Maree is obsessed with her Message in a Bottle
