|Nice looking bread from Google Images.|
It was part of World Book Day celebrations and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Well done, everybody!
I then set to and made bread. It was a bit of an experiment because I didn't really have time, but I decided to do just the one rise which made it possible. It rose well and the loaves look magnificent on the outside so fingers crossed for the inside too. Mr Hollywood would be turning in his grave, I am sure.
Talking of him, I really enjoyed Mary Berry's 'Foolproof cooking' last night. That chicken pot pie looked fantastic and I must have a go at it, including the lattice top. I'm not exactly sure how they got the top onto the pie but, dear me, nothing ventured, nothing gained!
The more I watch the programme, the more I want the book! Oh, dear!
Today, once the crumpets are done and I am washed and dressed I will be going into school. My Tuesday contract has come to an end now and I have promised someone I will hear readers for a while. Then I need to top up with a few veg and I have heard that Lidl has a special on veg this week so I'll give it a go and see what they have.
That's about it really. Plenty of time to continue getting some order into my dump of a bedroom!
B: crumpet with poached egg, fruit yogurt
L: there's a little bit of curry left over from last night, not much but it will do for lunch with some fruit for afterwards
D: Not sure yet. I need to look in the freezer.
I wonder if the crumpets are done yet.
