A little bit of baking

Well I may not have been up to much crafting recently but I have been cooking and I was very chuffed with my most recent effort at baking, not only did it taste good it also looked good AND I was able to do quite a bit with my three year old son

He could mix (we did get sugar everywhere mind) and he could also scatter the sugar mixture and the blueberries and there is nothing like licking the spoon, unfortunatley you have to give the spoon up when you have children otherwise they wrestle you for it and they always win 😉

Again from the Goodfood magazine, I think I should get commission from them right?!

I am going to try it with peaches next time as I think they would make it that bit sweeter.

I did also try to make a pea and potato curry (again from the goodfood magazine, don’t all groan at once) but I have to say this was the first recipe that turned out just awful – sorry goodfood if you are reading this which I am pretty sure you are not but this recipe was all wrong, too many potatoes, cooking time was way off and my sauce curdled. I did learn a lesson though:

If you are not sure on something go on line find the recipe and read the comments

I unfortunately did this too late, hey we did eat it but this is one I would not attempt again but you can not win them all can you.

I had also cooked this

soup

 

But for the life of me I can not remember what it was! Babybrain maybe.

Felt heart

I had lost my groove a bit with having a baby but decided to get back into the swing of things with a mini project, something I could start and finish in one day even if there was a few stops and starts in between so I grabbed some bits and bobs

and ended up with this

I just can’t seem to do hearts for some reason, they always turn out a funny shape!

But it did help me get some mojo back so I have a little to do list for this week, when I say little I mean it has two things on it:

  1. Finish my sons quilt
  2. Make some more home made soup

Wish me luck and hold me accountable if I am not back next week showing off a completed quilt.
