Hello from a much chillier Derbyshire.
Firstly Welcome to new follower Kris. Have popped over to your blog. A bee-lover !!
Looks like the weather is turning and I'm going to get some time inside to finish off the preserving and start some sewing. Though I have much to do for the Civic Society in the next four weeks too so I shall have to knuckle down to map making, press releases and cake making ( for refreshments)
Today I finally got the batch of wine into demi-johns. Fortunately I had taken it off the must and it had languished in a huge bucket for three days longer than it should have. Anyway there are now 5 gallon jars plopping away merrily. The wine is damson, grape and elderberry.
Below is a picture of YGD preparing french beans for tea. She doesn't like the runners but she really likes french beans dipped in cheese sauce.. .. and why not?
Weather permitting, we will be driving down to Cornwall this weekend, but must be back for Sunday tea as it it ED's birthday and we will meet up at our house for tea. Last week ED gave me a full loaf that she didn't need. I had just taken a couple of loaves out of the freezer, so neither did I. I converted the loaf into stuffing for Christmas day and froze it. Will need to make a similar amount to go with it for there to be sufficient for the day. But I guess I have made the very first thing for Christmas!
Off to bed now
