Baking and making...
First of all, thank you so much, to all of you, for your kind comments and good wishes for DB. He appreciated your concerns very much. I haven't let him drive yet, just in case, if he went at the wheel, it might prove dire to him and anyone else in the car.
Had our first walk the other day and his BP was quite low when we got home so made him lie down, but he was fine. Bruise now turning yellow so on its way out! So far, his BP seems just a little higher so that is good but it always lingers at the back of your mind and I don't think I shall be able to relax for quite some time.
I removed his steri-strips this morning, healing nicely and beginning to itch. As you can see, mending well but going to have a nice scar if the scab is anything to go by!
Next, welcome to my new Bloglovin follower, Sharon.
We are on our weekly walk tomorrow but have changed where we will be walking so there will be vehicle access if needed!
On a cool, late autumn morning, there is nothing I like more than being in the kitchen keeping warm.
The first thing on my list was to make some bread. This time I used 1/2 lb of strong wholemeal flour and 1 1/2 lb of strong white flour. I also added two handfuls of combined sunflower and pumpkin seeds and 1/2 cup of golden linseeds.
Here they are fresh from the oven:
They were dry fried in a large pan until cooked. We had one each (divided into 6 portions) plus 1/2 a pear and 1/2 an apple for our lunch. They look huge on this plate but were about a 6" circle.
I came across a forgotten bag of tomatillo's in the salad compartment of the fridge. A few were going off so it was time to turn them into a tomatillo sauce, portioned and frozen. I think the recipe is elsewhere on my blog, just search for tomatillo stew or something similar and you should find it.
For our American friends, we don't have easy access to canned tomatillo's over here, so it is grow them yourselves or go without!
Anyway, once grilled, they were mixed with chilli, lime juice and garlic and left in a pan to cool off.
