As I’m writing, I’m simultaneously attempting to get the last bits of dried dough out from underneath my nails… yes, another baking weekend! To start off – cheesy fennel scones, a recipe for which I had found and saved a few months ago. Finally having gotten down to making them, I can safely say that this won’t be the last time – they went down a treat (and I’m still being treated to the delightful fennel-y whiff coming from the kitchen!)
For a special lunchtime treat, I made homemade pizza. I had never made pizza from scratch before (sauce & all), and I woke up with a strange craving for it this morning, so I thought, why not give it a go? The resulting pizzas (with parma ham for the boy & plain cheesy margherita for me) were received very well, with even my little pooch Roky getting in on the action!
Away from the kitchen, I continue to work on that large embroidery project I’ve hinted at a few times now. Finally finishing the first stage of it, I got going on the next bit, and have set a deadline for completion (for my sanity if nothing else) by the end of the month. Can’t wait to share it with everyone once it’s done! 🙂
