I have been experimenting with some of the supermarket bread mixes for the bread machine but they are not as cost effective or as tasty.
The pumpkin seed bread mix although quite tasty was a little disconcerting due to its colour.
Yes it really was that colour, it put us off a little. The multiseed bread mix did fayre a little better and was a more realistic colour and texture. It went well with the soup.
A sweet potato and carrot soup was warming and filling. Several portions are now in the freezer all ready for one of those lazy days when a quick meal is needed.
Our trip to Stornoway last week included a stroll around the An Lanntair to view the Hyperborea: Lands of the North Exhibition, which showcased the work of three photographers, Ragner Axelsson, Alex Boyd and Chris Friel. Friel's work concentrates on the landscapes of the Outer Hebrides. I found part of the exhibition a little haunting and a little over whelming as thoughts of my young nephew crashed over me.
His photographs were very dramatic but like him struggled to focus through the tears.
There was indeed some amazing photographs that were uplifting and captured the very essence of the faraway Islands of Faroe, Greenland and Iceland. My photographs do not do them justice due to the lighting, shadows and reflections. In some you can see more of me taking the photo than you can of the actual photo.
As always I thank you for your support, emails and comments they are always appreciated. I will finish with a beautiful evening over the croft. I can stand looking out of the kitchen window for hours admiring the beauty surrounding me and feel blessed that I am living my dream.
See you soon.
