It's awful cold out there again . . .
I forgot to mention yesterday that on Tuesday I had a lovely little surprise. When we retired last summer (there were three of us leaving), various photos were taken at the party and on Tuesday I was handed a little book with some of the photos in. Really lovely memories.
Yesterday I cooked a very nice carrot and lentil soup, recipe in Teacher's Recipes, and in the evening went to a school governors' meeting which was very interesting and informative. Apart from that it was a kind of Lazy Day really. I did get on with my second crochet blanket though and there are now spaces in the stash cupboard which is what it's all about. I'm having to fight the temptation to be anal about colours and rows and things like that and keep telling myself it is to use up yarn, not buy yarn in specifically! Oh, dear.
Today I want to make bread with the starter for the first time. It's all fizzy and bubbly and in the peak of health so here's hoping, eh! I have to go out in the afternoon but my impression is that rising and proving all take ages so that should be OK.
I also indulged in a nice looking pork shoulder the other day and today I am turning it into pulled pork. I've not made that, ever, so I have a recipe and fingers crossed! Do you have any pulled pork recipes you could share?
That's about it, really. I'm thinking that maybe next week I will take some time out to go to Hyde Hall and see the gardens in winter. The bulbs should be very attractive and it will get me out and walking in the open air - always a Good Thing. I should make better use of my membership.
B: poached egg on crumpet
L: soup from the freezer
D: pulled pork but not sure what with. I need to google around and see what's suggested. If I can't find anything it will probably be with broccoli and maybe sweet potato fries.
