Good morning, everyone.
It's yucky-wet outside right now but there's very little wind. That's for tomorrow, according to the BBC. The rain is a different matter; it's forecast to last more or less all day so it's a stay-inside-and-get-on-with-stuff sort of day today.
I know I said I'd make the vegetarian sausage rolls today but, when it came to it, I made them yesterday and they are now in the freezer, as safe as something like that ever is in my house. Beth tasted a couple and said that they are well up to the family standard so that's one item ticked off my list.
We started making these when Beth was a young teen who had decided to become vegetarian. Delia's Christmas book was new out and my Mum, being a great Delia fan, had the book so decided to give them a go. The rest, as they say, is family history.
I also did some crafting with Beth, made some very tasty spicy red lentil soup, planned and delivered some tuition and generally had a useful day with the dishwasher working overtime!
Today looks pretty free until tuition time so I will seize the opportunity to get on with some Christmas prep, some clutter-clearing and get my ironing basket emptied. There's some stuff to chuck out, some clothes to recycle and a few things to wrap which means a trip down to the garage to get the Christmas wrapping paper out. I might also get started with the cards.
It should be a very useful day!
By the way, if you're interested, Delia's recipe is here. I bought puff pastry and I used soft cheese rather than cream as that's what I had in.
