Back to "Normality" here!
Lots to do, with the garden giving out its' bounty and me desperately trying not to waste anything. It's beginning to look like a "Glutney Chutney" day. We have quite a few marrows (overgrown courgettes actually!) and I picked up a bucket of cooker windfalls yesterday. I'm pleased to say that very few onions have bolted, probably because I grow from seed not sets, but there are a few, from which I can salvage something. The garlic is now dried Soooooooooooo. Chutney it is then !
The words "Glutney Chutney" are not mine, but Hugh F-W's. I adjust the recipe with whatever I have to hand, which is of course what Hugh intended. I will measure stuff as I do it and give you the recipe tomorrow.
Firstly though, I must go and fetch my EGD. We are picking up our supplies for cooking and then she is coming back here to try out a pattern she has found for Christmas presents for some of the family. I shan't say what it is now obviously, as some of our family read this blog!
I have bought down an old electric sewing machine from the loft. It has been there since we moved here in 1981!!! Between us D. and I have got it going again and I was going to use it to set up for a project I am doing (Christmas secret again), so that I could leave it set up and use my treadle as usual for everything else. However EGD should be able to use the electric machine with a little practice, so we'll see how we go.
As it is tuesday it is likely that there will be a few folk around the table this lunchtime. If I get chance I shall make some leek and potato soup, from the bolted leeks and rogue potato plant that was strangling my Gladioli. If I don't get time it will be egg on toast !!
Still can't load any pics Grrrrr
