Don't even ask

Yes, we are back from holiday!

I think we've cleared the tidal wave of washing and assorted crap rubbish

We weren't quite sure what to do with these...

and to be honest, a 4kg courgette is going to be mostly string, fluff and seeds.

But the excitement of having my kitchen back (after three weeks of living in a tent) might have gone to my head.

 You see, on holiday I read a little book about traditional cooking and foods. 

 It mentioned doing things with cold porridge. Seemed like a frugal yet wholesome idea (hmm, rubbery...)

looking "good" so far...


At this stage, I laughed out loud even though I was alone in the kitchen.

Hmm, slightly more promising...but taking longer than anticipated to crisp up...

The troops were very dutiful, and they did try them - with honey (disgusting) and with golden syrup ("better").

To be honest, after the Girl ran upstairs clutching her mouth, Mr G and I scoffed the lot. She did enquire after them later in the day, but too late!

So, later there will be the usual photos of Brittany and seaweed and my new obsession, but I just had to get that off my chest. 

Thank you for reading; it's good to be back!
