I also made bread, a beautiful granary loaf. I cheat and use the bread making machine but it is still good and far better than the shop bought variety. The only problem with that because it is so good you eat more, we need to be a little more disciplined.
We have once again managed to get a surplus of cabbage in the garden so we swapped a couple of cabbage for some apples from our neighbour.
The apples along with the blackberries that we will pick from the hedgerow along the back of the garden with make some beautiful Autumnal puddings.
A blackberry and apple crumble springs to mind, perfect for those cooler days.
As always we had a ball with Wilbur at the weekend visiting his favourite haunts, the park, the beach and the arcade. He also spend a good couple of hours in the garden chasing the poor dog around. He managed to wear himself out and dropped asleep with his mummy for a nap, recharging his batteries ready to give us all the run around once more. He is such a character, always so full of beans.
The lazy hazy days of summer are beginning to fade and already the nights are beginning to draw in and the temperatures are dropping. I feel that it was over before it began this year, not the best of summers with regard to the weather. It has rained here all night and has been rain, rain and more rain all morning. I feel guilty for moaning about it when people are praying for rain to put the fires out spreading all over several states of America. I am hoping for a beautiful August bank holiday weather wise so that we can all have a pleasant weekend as a lasting memory of the summer. What is the weather like where you are?
Thank you for all your lovely comments on my last post, they are always appreciated.
See you soon.
