Had a crazy afternoom last Tuesday. Had pumpkin home from kinder sick (again- aaaaah! and it’s only the beginning of winter!) and so with no taxi duties to perform in the afternoon (picking up and dropping off small people) had a sudden wash of warm, housewifely, momsy good feeling wash over me and decided to bake!!!
I should have known better- it’s like this rush of hormones, or a schitzophrenic episode where my alter ego, a 1950′s housewife called Enid comes out and destroys my kitchen with two kilos of flour a dozen eggs and a kitchen aid.
I love it when I start, but I always get bored about half way through and then it just becomes a chore… and the cleaning up!!! It took me two days to get all the dishes washed up and the dried up dough scraped off the bench without gouging great chunks out of the wooden top.
However check out my grand creations. Jamie Oliver’s Apple pie- it’s great served hot with greek yoghurt, Nigel Slater’s easy bread recipie (a bit dense, but maybe I didn’t let it prove for long enough) and yummy roasted pumpkin and cauliflower and bacon soup (I didn’t take a photo of that, because yummy as it was, it looked like a vat of vom.)
Also just finished quilting my latest etsy quilt. I think it’s my best one yet, v. happy. Am off now to sew the binding on.
All around, it’s been a reasonable week on the homecrafts front!
