Today is a celebration of things pretty – fabric and buttons.
I have decided, with a little guidance, to collect buttons. Challenge 45 required me to start collecting something I loved. I have something of a skill for the accumulation of things and whilst there was competition from cake stands and little jugs I have settled on buttons. The lovely thing about buttons is I can use them on things as well. I started the official collection by purchasing 2 wooden buttons featuring maple leaves.
I’ll still have open arms for cake stands and jugs but right now ‘I collect buttons!’ Just like that.
Yesterday I made the ‘Seared Beef with Mustard Crust’ which was a little seared and not quite brown enough for this mama and her family so it got a little extra cooking – sorry Sophie! It was a lovely meal though and in attendance some special family members – always a treat to eat with others and something we don’t do enough.
I also made another batch of homemade ice-cream and the ‘Ganache’ which we used, and shared, as a chocolate fondue with bananas and marshmallows. Delicious!
My quote of the week comes from Master 3 who was eating homemade yoghurt the other day and said ‘It makes me smile in my mouth’. I think he’s growing up for a career in food writing!
Tonight I am seriously committed to making some real inroads on the charity quilt – it must be done!
