What a lovely day today! This morning I had the pleasure of meeting Val of Dotty Cookie fame! We recently realised we live very close to each other so arranged to meet for a cuppa at a local garden centre/farm shop. Not only did I have the pleasure of meeting Val but also her "Tiny small" daughter and the amazing psychedelic monkee! It was an absolute pleasure to meet all three and the morning just whizzed by confirming what I already knew - Crafty Bloggers are lovely people.
Not a lot else done to day but I did have to try a recipe from my new purchase yesterday - so this is Tessa Kiros' tomato risotto - which was scrummy! I made a couple of adjustments (never could follow a recipe as printed) - like leaving in the garlic and using fresh chilli but it is set to become a firm favourite. I wouldn't let Stewart eat his dinner until I had taken the photo - he wasn't impressed so it was hastily taken and probably wouldn't win me any awards for food photography... but it did taste good!
A busy weekend ahead as I'm off to Sevenoaks tomorrow to talk to their Embroiderer's Guild, coming home for a Burn's supper at a friends house in the evening, my parents are here for lunch on Sunday and then Stewart has a day off on Monday so weather permitting we will try to get our day at the seaside! So could well be be absent for a few days. Have a lovely weekend.
