Over the last few weeks I've tried quite a few different hot cross buns... traditional, extra spicy... even chocolate. But these ones, with lemon peel - English Hot Cross Buns - are the most delicious! ~ A year ago today I was paging through a new book ~
Green mash is an excellent alternative to mashed potatoes. I make it by cooking a mix of cauliflower and broccoli, adding salt, a knob of butter and dash of milk, then blitzing with the hand blender. So quick and so delicious. My Sunday lunch today - sirloin with peppers and green mash - was excellent. ~ A year ago today I went to see a play ~
I popped into Michele's place for a visit this afternoon. She's busy making two dozen replica muskets for a movie. It's always interesting to see what's happening in her workshop. ~ A year ago today I went out for lunch ~
A few days ago I saw this lost dog notice on an internet message board. Yesterday, quite by chance, I saw a "found dog" notice on a Facebook page and made the connection. I contacted the owner and heard today that it was the right dog. She is well (despite over a week alone on the mountain and travelling all the way from Constantia Neck to the city bowl) and very happy to be home. It's so nice to have been able to help, and hooray for the internet! ~ A year ago today I was combing my hair ~
Dorothy and I went to see the 'Dinner for 101' exhibition at the Castle today. We also walked along the ramparts and did some exploring around the Castle precinct. Loved this little patch of garden just outside the walls. ~ A year ago today Trixie was being an odd little cat ~
I'm late to the party... my friends were watching and talking about Junior Masterchef Australia last year but I only started watching it recently. Am loving it though - really entertaining and such talented kids! I'm not feeling very well this week and this just the best sort of TV to watch when one's feeling poorly. ~ A year ago today I went for a walk at dawn ~
Ha, I'm suddenly over the bountiful crop of peaches my little tree had this summer! The fruit is now dropping all over the place and full of full of fruit flies and other goggas. Sticky, stinky and very messy! ~ A year ago today I had lunch in Arniston ~
One photo posted every day. A snapshot from my life. People I know, places I visit. The mundane details of my day-to-day. Things I do, see, watch, read and taste. A record of my small, quiet, everyday life.
