The girls have settled in well and have been out exploring their new environment. Mickey goes down with us but isn't bothered about them at all, so we are thrilled.
I have had some raspberries soaking in a mix of distilled vinegar and white wine vinegar for a taste of Summer through the Winter months. (About 4 days)
It was bottled yesterday, along with some chilli oil.
Red cabbage was shredded and divided between the colander and slow cooker. The cabbage in the colander salted and left overnight all ready to be rinsed off and packed in jars ready for the pickling vinegar. The slow cooker cabbage cooked with pears and port all ready for braised read cabbage for the freezer.
As it is Communion weekend here in our little corner of the world I have been busy baking for the wonderful occasion and fellowship throughout the weekend. A shoulder joint of pork in the slow cooker for pulled pork. Mixed grain bread in the breadmaker. A large pan of broth bubbling away on the stove top. Quiches, all ready to be cut. Mince pies with a crumble, nutty top and banana bread.
I am now going to make a fruit tart and a trifle to take for desert when we go to our friends and neighbours for lunch tomorrow. A wet and wild few days that doesn't compare to the devastation occurring around the World. We have a lot to be thankful for
A warm welcome to new followers, I hope you enjoy my little adventures through life.
See you soon.
