Nearly the end of November - time flies by.
I thought I'd treat myself to a bunch of seasonal flowers. The bit of trailing plant going across to the cooker died but the rest of it is still going strong. My conkers seem to be multiplying. At the left hand side is a device that shows you how much you are spending on electricity. Oo - er!
DD had a birthday and her work colleagues sent her flowers. It's pretty floral in this kitchen.
Mince pies here I come.
While the cooker was on I roasted the pumpkin.
Right - recipe at the ready ...
and the mincemeat was made the other day.
Looks like the pumpkin's ready.
It was a lot of messing around taking off the skin but it came away quite easily.
The seeds were duly washed - good job we're not on a meter - and then roasted with butter and salt. The pulp was mushed and will be stored in the freezer.
I'm now 'resting' from all the work in the kitchen and have started a new project, the result of trying to help KC's Court. I'm quite enjoying knitting again.
Soon be Christmas!
Sherry time is sooner, though!
