I used the bread making machine to make an orange cake and cooked it on the cake setting. Obviously it came out quite deep and was rather an unusual shape to add some frosting or sweet but tasty none the less.
As the hens are laying well so...
we are having 6 eggs every day, we have an abundance of eggs despite giving friends and neighbours some. As a treat at the weekend I made meringue to take as a desert to neighbours that had invited us to lunch. They turned out quite well and I made an Eton mess using mandarins rather than berries.
It was indeed very tasty and didn't last very long.
The hens are having a ball at the moment having free range to the garden and have no problem with the sheep over the fence. They have once again been put to the ram and are due to be scanned this week.
Although not Crofters ourselves, it is a delight to watch the sheep and the calendar of events around a Crofters life.
Bertie's blanket is almost finished one more round on the border and it will be done. I have already sorted out the nest lot of yarn ready for Honey's blanket and will share them both in a later post. What are you working on at the moment?
From my previous post:
The building overlooking the sea sadly is not inhabited the views would be spectacular.
The lighthouse is closed to the public and so it is not possible to walk up to the top. It is now automated so the Light keepers accommodation is also empty.
There are a lot of fisherman use the local Port and yes indeed the catch is sold locally. We don't go fishing ourselves.
As always I thank you for your visit and for your comments.
See you soon.
