Well I managed to get the kitchen finished today all nicely scrubbed and everything in its place.
Have had a busy day. Made some sultana scones which is the same recipe that I posted for sweet scones but with a handful of golden sultanas thrown in as well or any mixed fruit or alternative fruit of your choice you could use a preparatory mixed fruit, or raisins or ordinary sultanas, cranberries, dried apricot. Very easy to do and quick. I was always taught by my mum that if you had the cooker on you packed it to the gunnels and used it to do a bit of baking as well and get the most out of having the cooker on in full swing. That's why Mum always traditionally bakes on a Sunday morning when she is cooking the Sunday joint.
We had roast rib of beef for dinner this evening cooked with garlic roasted in its skins and then mashed into the juices from the meat, veggie water added, seasoning, redcurrant jelly, marigold gravy mix and some cornflower. I like meat cooked with garlic.
Wasn't a big joint and was cooked slowly but it had a lot of flavour
And of course if there is Roast Beef for lunch then there has to be Yorkshire Pudding - boy did it rise today.
Dinner was very tasty and I managed to get two tubs of roast beef with onion gravy for the freezer - so if I am not around for whatever reason the OH should be able to get something tasty to eat.
Then I made a nectarine crumble
Then I stewed some plums to put into the freezer. I did not flavour them, flavourings such as cinnamon can be added once the fruit is added/made into its final recipe.
So all in all have had a very productive time in the kitchen today - cleaning and cooking wise.
Hope to be able to play a little tomorrow evening when I get home from work as well.
