  1. Back To Baking

    May 12, 2013 by sarah

    After calls to make a chocolate cake for the nurses at work, I relented and made Nigella’s dense chocolate loaf cake from ‘How To Be A Domestic Goddess’. I report it was sufficiently googey and chocolately to satisfy all – well I guess so as it all disappeared! I also made a spiced rhubarb sponge to celebrate the first harvest of rhubarb from our garden. Yummy!

  2. The Mexican Stand Off

    May 12, 2013 by sarah

    The chickens have been enjoying the sunshine in the back garden today. When I popped out to check on them, look what I found… dog and chickens asleep in the sun. What this picture doesn’t show is that our cat, Brian, was asleep on the grass too only 3 feet away from the chickens. I tried to get a picture with them all in but they woke up and moved off. Happy families!

  3. A short break!

    May 12, 2013 by sarah

    We took a few days off work and went camping in Herefordshire and Shropshire, so I have not done any baking for a few weeks. The weather was glorious every day. I particularly liked the day we sent going around the second hand book shops in Hay-on Wye and all lovely meals we had out, especially around Ludlow. The other timber house , painted in yellow, is part of Stokesay Castle, near Ludlow.
