Comfort food...

I love my Spode coffee mugs - blue and white yummyness!
~
I was reading somewhere about recipes for rhubarb so I bought a few stalks of rhubarb on Monday and I stewed it up with a little bit of sugar and water to make a crumble. I topped the crumble with layers of apple...
~
then sprinkled over a little brown sugar...
~
I made my crumble topping with some rolled oats, Just Right breakfast cereal, brown sugar, flour and a dob of margarine, melted.
~
These nice meaty lamb chops are going to be crumbed.
~
I put plain flour, salt and pepper in a freezer bag, throw in the chop and give it a good shake. Then it goes into the egg then the crumb mix.
~
~
Bake in a 170C oven for 30-40 minutes (depending on thickness of chops).
~
It was one of those nights when I just wanted meat and 3 veggies - good comfort food.
~
I baked the crumble for about 30 minutes (next time I will pre-cook the apples - they were still a bit crisp) ...
~
I made up a sachet of Weight Watchers vanilla custard - it's not too bad...
~
Red sky in the morning...
~
... is a shepherds warning...
~
...so they say! It turned out to be a very hot, windy day. There were a few fires that broke out in the district but luckily, just smallish grass fires. I hate days like these!
~
As you can see, Bonnie was not impressed either!
~
Our two sheep (Hobbles and DJ) were happy to munch on some hay Gus got for them. Our paddock is nearly bare - we just need that inch of rain to get some feed going again.
~
Dark skies this morning at 7am - I do hope we get a bit more rain today. It's really cold outside at the moment, so much cooler than yesterday. It's teasing me!
~
Now it's 9am and we have blue skies and sunshine - Grrr!
I guess it will rain eventually but not today, I think!

  10. Mmm crumbed chops, my hubby's favourite. I used to make them on special occasions with my Mother-in-laws homemade crumbs which were very yummy. We have them a bit more often now, but I tend to buy them already crumbed!!Your crotcheting and knitting looks good. I'm in that mode too at the moment...I think it's the cooler weather that brings it on.
