This is just a quick post - I promise I'll try - having been very happy and busy harvesting and handpicking and then homebaking.
It was lovely this morning to go and check on the courgettes - and WOW!! There were loads of courgettes and the beans are coming along nicely too! All that sun and rain recently, and there is no stopping them, turn your back for a minute!! I also picked some of the sweet peas and other lovely flowers in the garden to brighten up the kitchen - and the sweet peas are so fragrant and sweet smelling.
Now to decide what to do with my lovely new crop, I'll come back to that later. Then I set about baking some gluten free scones - cheese scones are Little J's favourite so that's what i did. I must admit to being inspired and left mouth watering at Lucy's scones the other day - they did look lovely. Anyway I got them made, then plain and chocolate fairy buns, then I put some gluten free bread dough to prove. Stilll waiting on the bread buns to have their second prove before going into the hot Aga - then coleslaw and ham (as promised ) awaits. Have decided with the boys, that we will make pizza for dinner later, and use homemade bread dough, homegrown courgettes and other yummy things for the toppings. Will let you know how they turn out!
Then I made both E and Little J's favourite - flapjack all warm, buttery and sticky, they have it on it's own or with sliced banana. And it is quite delicious.
I've been making flapjack for years, since I was little (about the same age as the bread, ham and colelslaw sandwiches in my last post here) and whatever variation we decide on they are always delicious. Banana, chocolate, raisins, fruity, nutty, seedy (with seeds in), there are so many ways to make it. Of course now I hahve to make it with gluten free oats. But it is still delicious.
So now for my snack, and a cuppa! I'll enjoy this.
