Yesterday was quite a productive day in that I got a number of things sorted out and I made some lemon marmalade. Not from scratch, that would be too much like hard work, but I used a can of MaMade that someone gave me a while ago which is dead easy and tastes lovely!. So I have jars to share with Mum and Dad, Beth and Jane and some left for myself.
In the end, Beth didn't come over, but I still made the tomato and lentil soup - one for yesterday, one for today and a portion for the freezer. Lucky freezer!
I was a little bit naughty. You see, I get quite frustrated when slicing my home made bread when it is very fresh - if you make bread you will know exactly what I mean. I like to make, slice and freeze - when you live alone you don't necessarily get through enough bread, even a small loaf, before it goes stale.
So I looked around for some sort of slicer. I looked at electric meat/bread slicers but no, too complicated. I don't need another appliance that will fill the inside of a cupboard after the first few weeks I looked at manual slicers but no - they all looked either fragile or not adaptable enough. I wanted something that would do thin, medium or thick slices. Then I found this . . .
I hope it's not a pup.
Today is going to be a nice day. I have some housework and some ironing, then I can do some crafting and later on I am out for dinner. Splendid!
