sorting, tidying, cleaning -
paintwork cleaned, windows cleaned, floor hoovered or swept and mopped, cupboards and drawers tidied and sorted. De-cluttering has happened with items dispatched to the CS, Ebay, compost bin or dustbin. Ooh, I have been busy in the lounge, dining room, back room and bedroom. I kept time for hobbies and walking of course. It's been cold and windy but sunny. Here's the sea a few days ago.
The seagulls were hovering in the wind.
I've got a dilemma now that I've started on the drawers in the dresser. There's an awful lot of scrappy bits of paper in there,
scribbled and cut out recipes that I've used and just kept together in a
heap pile in the drawer.
Perhaps I should write out the recipes in my new to me notebook with blank pages (just waiting to be used).
Let's see what we've got. A-ha! This one for Rabbit Biscuits was written by DS when he was little.
And this one is possibly DD's.
This one, with illustrations, definitely is.
This one for Green Tomato Chutney came from a good friend. It's been well used.
As did this one for Mincemeat without suet. It's seen quite a few Christmases.
This one for Sweet and Sour Sauce is jotted down on an envelope. I wonder where that recipe came from?
And what's this I've found? I wonder who did this drawing.
So many memories just sifting through them. Should I just put them back in the drawer or copy them into my book then dispose of them on the compost?
I'll leave you with this recipe from the Ladies' Evening Circle Favourite Recipes booklet from the 1982 Yuletide Fayre!
