So I have discovered today that the quick breads from day 2 freeze very well and are nice to eat re-heated. A happy find! Today was Junior Jellies day p42. My first proper experience with gelatine I might add! Used pineapple juice and puree so I won’t be eating them. (Not a pineapple fan unless it’s pineapple lumps but that probably doesn’t count.) Master 3 thoroughly enjoyed his one for lunch. Master 1 hasn’t had a turn yet but he has had 2 cupcakes so those have his tick of approval (and mine).
Last night I also made some progress on one of our dining chairs. These are old family chairs that I have been too scared to do anything so I have lived with them in this appalling state instead. But times have changed and I have thrown caution to the wind. Armed with an old curtain I purchased for $2 and a trusty staple gun, pair of pliers and a claw thing that came from husbands garage I have un-upholstered and recovered the chair. It’s what could be described as ‘rustic’ in terms of its finish but I like it. It’s also a lot better than holes with stuffing coming out every where. I just have to decide if this counts for challenge 5 – get an old piece of furniture and re-design it.
Tonight I have had to shuffle the menu tonight because of a partly de-frosted chook. So Home Burgers p 17 it is. Will update on their success tomorrow.
Meanwhile I will be trying to get on to the present making wagon. Any inspiration appreciated. Oh and mama #2 (the challenge instigator will be online soon so I’ll link in to her – if I ever figure out how!).
Happy sunshine day to you.
