Just found myself with a lull in the day - waiting for bread dough to finish in my bread maker so I can turn it into rolls for tomorrows lunches. Having to do this as the stupid machine is on its last legs and won't produce a decent loaf anymore but it can still produce decent dough. Hoping it last a few months longer - its that time of year when I'd rather divert spare pennies towards pressies for family for Christmas.
2 anniversaries happened last week - one I remembered and one I didn't. The one I remembered was my 22nd Wedding Anniversary on Saturday - so did MrVV & our parents too;
We decided on a day out together - we headed to Norwich for a mix of essential shopping for both of us and a rather scrummy Italian lunch too. We paused a while to watch some brilliant buskers;
They were called the He Hews and you can find them on Facebook & You Tube - brilliant musicians and excellent entertainers too :) We stood for a while listening and jiggling along to the music - the temptation to dance almost won!
2 new to me things to share with you - I'm quite into trying new recipes at the moment and attempting some new to me skills as well. First one a simple chicken puff recipe I found in magazine - I cheated and used ready made puff pastry - I've never been any good at making it from scratch. Rather than waste any I just divided it into 4 hence the odd shapes - but let me tell you, they were tasty;
Pre-cooking - they didn't hang around long after they came out of the oven!!
I am attempting to dry some of the lavender from the garden - I've left some for the bees but I want some to turn into lavender sachets to hang with my clothes.
Right this weeks Autumn Views - not much has changed really - however these pictures were taken on a sunny day over the weekend;
No wildlife on here this time - there have been plenty of visitors just not when I was around!
And Vix - its not a tidy garden - trust me we could do with spending hours out there at the moment - its just that time/right weather haven't collided much recently.
Oh the other anniversary - the one I forgot - just the 3rd birthday of this little blog of mine.
Thank you to all who read/follow/comment or do all three.
Right the bread dough is done - off to make rolls.
See you soon
