Weekend Snapshot

Have really been suffering the last week or so with a nasty bout of cold and flu - germs kindly shared with me by Dave - thanks babe!  Consequently didn't really feel like getting out and about much at the weekend, and the one time I did make a conscious effort to leave the house I got rained on!  :)

So here is a little snapshot of my at home weekend.
I actually got round to doing some good old fashioned baking.  I don't know what it is but I don't really do a whole lot of cooking in the summer, but now Autumn is approaching I'm in the mood for the kitchen again.  I've never made jam tarts before, and I admit they look a bit pasty and untidy but let me tell you they were delicious!
Snoozing with the cats
And plenty of stitching for my city and guilds course.

All in all a pretty nice weekend considering.  This coming week I have a couple of days off work and we are heading for Cornwall for a nice little mini break hopefully I'll have shaken off the last of these germs by then.  Can't wait!

I discovered a really good gluten free pastry recipe last year and was able to have mince pies for the first time in years. Perhaps I'll have a go at jam tarts too. I'm just about to start a C & G course, but it's being run once a week at my LQS which will help keep me motivated.

Maybe he gave you the cold/flu because you abandoned him when he was sick. :)

We've been having a bug go through our house too, no fun, I hope you are all better soon. Care to share the recipe for the jam tarts? I've heard of them, but never made them before and they sounds delicious.

I hope you are feeling better by now and I think your tarts look great! Much better than any I could make.
