HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 14/12/2014 at 20:20

When the children were at home I made all our bread - my Gt Grandpa was a village baker  and his daughter, my Grandma taught me to bake - I love yeast cookery and did regular baking sessions two or thr,ee times a week.  I started again when I retired but the pounds piled on so now I only do it for special occasions - I'm planning to make some Stollen for Christmas

PLEASE DONT GO GRANDMA

Hey Good Looking.....

Now we're stuffed to the gills again - this time chicken thighs, chorizo, sweet peppers, garlic and canellini beans in a smokey paprika and tomato sauce mopped up with lots of garlic bread - think there's enough left for half a dozen more bowls full if anyone's interested, otherwise it's going in the freezer

Well, that'd be really good

I have two rescued some years ago from a greengrocer's shelves - he thought they were dead.  I repot them in the spring, removing as much old compost as I can prise off the roots and replacing it with fresh - I use a 50:50 mix of MPC and JI No 3 loambased - because that's what I tend to have about and it seems to work. 

I leave them outside on the terrace in a semi-shaded spot after the last frost and bring them back in again before the first.  I put the pots in a tray of grit because the snails love them. 

When they come inside they live on the east facing windowsill of the dining room. They flower their socks off in the winter - when I water them indoors I give them a dose of Baby Bio every now and again, and then they usually  bloom again in the spring.  My two have just finished their winter show.

I'm fighting that possibility - my son says I'm more like my delightfully batty aunt than like Ma - hope that's a good thing
