Hello Forkers ... August edition

Perhaps more like this than Nigella LOL



But seriously...   just full of energy from 6 weeks on the sofa ........  I'll have used it all up soon and return to my usual more relaxed style of doing things   But there are definitely times when I get a real urge to cook, and as OH wants to make a curry for supper I got my cooking fix this morning. 


There will be plenty of pavlova to share this evening Fairy ... I mean, there's only the two of us here and it's got to be eaten somehow

My OH is a black haired blue eyed  white skinned skinny-ribs of Scottish ancestry ......... 


Right, I've been creative in the kitchen ... I made mayonnaise yesterday for the chicken salad, so today I had three egg whites in the fridge ... I've just added another and made a Pavlova ... then with the 1 egg yolk I made some shortcrust pastry for a smoked salmon and chard quiche tomorrow ... I picked up some nearly out of date double cream in the farm shop the other day so that's been in the freezer but is out now and in the fridge to defrost.  


Then I made a fruit compote with the last of last year's raspberries and blackberries and some blueberries from the supermarket ... that'll be dolloped over whipped cream on the pavlova.  


Another day of feeling particularly angelic   I think it's a reaction to having spent 6 weeks on the sofa   


OH has been angelic too, and watered and fed the cues, toms, figs etc 


I probably need to wash the kitchen floor   ... but I'd better have a coffee first

That's really interesting Dacha ... as i've said, we have a good colony of bats here ...  when I lived elsewhere I used to suffer really badly from mosquito bites, but although we're really close to the marshes I've not been bitten since we moved here in 2011  ... I thank the bats

It's not you who needs to apologise Pat ... we love your photos 


No nastiness on this thread please ... to people or any other living thing (well, molluscs may  be excepted from that 


Good humour, good sense and support for our fellows is what happens here.

Collared doves. Hate them with a vengeance. Nothing more than fancy pigeons. Vermin! As the RSPB describe them: 'Monotonous call' or as BBC Nature says: 'Irritating noise.' No peace from dawn to dusk. I think I will rig up a speaker and blast them with the sounds of a predator bird.


See original post

 Think I'd find that even more irritating 

HELP
