Oh dear, does anybody need a brick? Seem to have forgotten my sourdough loaf in the oven.......sigh. And I had been proving it since yesterday lunchtime - bugger.

31/03/2013 at 22:42
Errr mine turned put that way without forgetting , could it be painted ? ....garden ornament ?
31/03/2013 at 22:48

Good plan, Bunny. I could use it to build a rockery!

31/03/2013 at 22:50
Yes .... Painted all colours,...

Really enjoyed Foyle's War.

Very busy day today. 20 guests for Easter lunch in aid of Cancer Support. 22 to cook for (me & OH too). Went very well then I made rissoles with the left over lamb, so busy for ages then watched TV. Tired.

31/03/2013 at 23:00

Sounds exhausting, Liz. Well done you!

Any rissoles left.......?

I have hacked the end of the brick off and it is good bread inside. Ready toasted......

31/03/2013 at 23:06
You deserve a rest after that Liz. Haven't done any cooking today, OH does most it nowadays.

I like Foyle too, just finished watching.

I used to like Foyle when I had a telly, partly because I lived in Hastings for about 8 years and partly because I quite fancy Michael Kitchen.

Are you without tv now goldi,?
01/04/2013 at 00:07

Have been without since 2005. Don't miss it and I can watch stuff on iPlayer if I really want to - mostly cookery programmes!

Right, off to my stinkypit now. Sleep well, Forkers.

Loamy dreams.....

Morning all

Have a good day whatever you are doing .

Good morning everyone.

Overcast here today, but mild enough to get out and do some of the jobs that really need doing. Repotting lilies, if they have survived the winter, and general tidy up etc.

Goldi, how do you make a sourdough starter, is it easy?

Your neighbouring allotment looks amazing, he must spend hours doing it, but a bit OTT.

Have a good day folks.

Morning Forkers.

April 1st, no tricks that I know of so far. Apart from the tricksy weather forecast which is worse than was promised yesterday. We may have sun later in the morning for an hour or so but it's mostly cloud.

Not sure what I'm doing today, probably trimming and tidying.

Have a good day, one and all.

01/04/2013 at 09:41
trimming and tidying what .... Mind boggles again

Much colder than I was expecting outside , freezing again. My hellebores look awful, the east wind that battered them which they arnt used to has really made them look very sad I don't know if they will be ok.

Not sure what doing here, OH working this morning (Me helping brrrrrr)Whether the outlaws are wanting to come through who knows , if afternoon to ourselves maybe nip to GC for compost .
01/04/2013 at 09:43

Morning all - sun's trying to shine here   I've just driven OH to work and took a detour through the GC - got a new windowsill propagator for my tommies (it was a good deal and my old one was a cheapie and falling to bits), some chicken manure pellets BOGOF and some seed compost - guess who's feeling a bit better 

01/04/2013 at 09:54

Trimming and tidying garden stuff that's long overdue, Bunny . Though you mentioning compost reminds me I could do with some for seeds so maybe GC is a more enticing prospect 

01/04/2013 at 09:56
Is it a drive through GC dove ....??

""Driven OH to work with detour through GC"" ...il get my coat

Yeyy Flo GC excitements

Morning, Forkers.

White Rabbits!

Cold again here, with grey skies.

Sourdough starter is easy. Just mix some flour and warm water to about the consistency of yoghurt and leave it lying around in the kitchen for a week, feeding it every day with a tablespoon of flour and more water. I used flour with malty bits because I thought it might help, but I know others just use normal bread flour. Some people put dried fruit or rhubarb in to start it off, but I didn't and mine seems to work fine.
