These are the paper cake cases that I use in my loaf tins. Look for them in the kitchen section of your local cheap shop. Our shop is called Absolutely Anything and I love having a browse.
Recently, I saw on the 'interwebs' a great way to cook sweetcorn. Leaving the corn in the husk, trim the wider end off, throw the cob into the microwave and zap for 4 minutes (that time works for me, yours may be more or less). When done, take it out, place on a plate and carefully squeeze the pointy end. The corn slides out of the husk clean, leaving all the hairy bits behind! Mind blown!
Sometime on the weekend, on a blog, this children's book was mentioned. Suddenly, I was transported back to being 7 years old, listening to this story being told on Play School. I loved this story! So much so, I went online and ordered a copy!
Wow, rainbow do's are the go at the moment...would I dare? I think not!
I had another kitchen failure on Sunday. I had bought a little kitchen blow torch so I could have a go at Creme Brûlée. There was a recipe in Rachel's book...
I halved the recipe so it only made two (thinking of our waistlines)...
I made the custard as directed, placed them in a water bath then popped them in the oven at 110C (very slow oven) for 40 minutes as it said.
They were very liquid after that time so I gave them 10 minutes more at 140C. Still wobbly, I took them out of the oven and water then let them cool to room temperature. Popped them in the fridge for 1 hour - still the consistency of gravy. I know it said to chill for at least 4 hours but they just were never hoing to set so I tossed them! No dessert for us (sad face)!
This is a lovely hearty sauce and I had enough for our lunches the next day and to freeze a big tub for another time when we need a quick dinner.
I made some Country Boy cookies on Monday afternoon...
To save my waistline, I had a couple with a cup of tea that night then I bagged them up and gave them away.
Man Pleasing chicken was on the menu Monday night...
We've been juicing again and enjoying it!
Wednesday is here again, I can't believe how fast this year is going!
I didn't make it to yoga last night, it was 9C and I didnt get home from work and shopping until 5.40pm. Gus walked this morning at 6.45 but I wanted to go later at 8.30am.
Still having cold, cold weather but at least its not windy!
