Just about to set off for Cornwall, so little time to blog
Firstly, welcome Katy, great to see you here
A friend of ours who collects antiques has recently bought a couple of rare 17th century, handwritten cookery books. The recipes look REALLY interesting and many are frugal. he has lent me the books for a while ( Better be careful not to spill anything on them!!) So when I get back I shall share some with you and we can all have a go at cooking some simple old fashioned dishes. I can't wait to try "Excellent Buns" for example. It is interesting that oyster pie is no longer frugal as is was then!
My EGD works in the village up the hill from us and told me last week, with no little excitement, that an empty shop was opening as a sewing/fabric shop!! So obviously we couldn't wait to have a look. I was very pleased to see that she will be offering knitting, crochet and sewing classes from September. EGD says she is going to sign up for the sewing classes ( I could show her, but she isn't keen on my treadle!) So if you live in the Amber Valley District of Derbyshire and can get to Crich she is Alison Baker at Love Hector on Crich Market Place. LoveHector.co.uk
Thanks for the kind comments on my last blog.
Off to Cornwall now (in the rain!)
Back next week
