This is my first time growing alliums. I love them and so do the bees!
Chocolate and vanilla sponge cake, I love the shape inside!
I love this egg salad with olives, beetroot, tomato and cucumber because it makes a change to not have a leafy salad. Feta cheese also goes well.
I used large whole walnuts for contrast with the light sponge in this loaf. Not all of them sank to the bottom!
Very pleased with my white and bluebells this year. The woods are full of miles and miles of beautiful blankets of bluebells.
It is stonkingly hot here today in Hampshire so we are having a BBQ! These kebabs are made up of cubed pork shoulder with mushrooms, tomatoes and peppers and ground black pepper over. We are also having corn on the cob and ciabatta bread and some chicken thighs with a sticky sauce. Yum! I’m off to rescue some Prosecco from the fridge…
How long will the daffodils last with Luna on the loose!
I had a lovely breakfast of scrambled eggs on toast with asparagus today. It was really nice. I was pottering around on t’internet and coincidentally on the 20th of April 1667 Samuel Pepys also had asparagus, but he had his with salmon and I didn’t buy mine for 18 pence in London! I think from now on I will call asparagus sparrowgrass…
So home, and having brought home with me from Fenchurch Street a hundred of sparrowgrass, cost 18d. We had them and a little bit of salmon, which my wife had a mind to, cost 3s. So to supper, and my pain being somewhat better in my throat, we went to bed.
I made a pretty sponge cake with butter cream in the middle and before I could take a picture they had eaten it!
Its lovely to see Spring in action and even though its early and most of the plants are still hesitant the magnolia is in full bloom and is stunning. I don’t see the relation between the rather dull magnolia paint colour and the subtle beautiful tones the plants, which are very much to be preferred!
Light fluffy sponge cake filled with butter cream and lemon curd and topped with white icing and daisy decorations.
