I stopped baking for a couple of months as we both needed to lose weight but especially my hubby as he needs 2 knee replacements and they won't do it until he loses 3 stone. Well he is half way there now and he has done so well. He mainly lost it by giving up Chocolate - he is a self confessed chocoholic and I think it was has for him to give up that as it was for him to stop smoking !!!
Anyway I had to give into my urge for baking, especially as I didn't have any cards to keep me busy. I made my usual Fruit Scones but also found a lovely recipe by Odlums for Bran & Raisin Muffins - OMG they are to die for !!!
We or should I say Rosie, have discovered a family of rabbits are living under our shed - now Rosie, as it turns out, is a hunting dog and likes nothing better than chasing the poor bunnies around the garden. She also dislikes cats with a passion, so I guess I won't be getting another cat then.
Finally this is a picture of just one of the wonderful sunsets we have had recently. It looked like the sky was on fire.
Now I need you all pray that I win the lotto or something because I am sick of looking at my kitchen. Plus I need to change my cupboards for drawers as I can't see what is in them anymore. If it isn't on the front of the top shelf, I don't know its there and I can't get to it. I went to Clonmel Kitchens the other week and OMG their kitchens are to die for. I could just get the units painted but that wouldn't solve the problem of the cupboards. Either way I need new worktops as I have to get a new hob & sink and my oven is also on its way out.
OK time for lunch now, so I hope to be back soon - remember those kitchen prayers now LOL
