Still waiting

Our new washing machine will not be delivered until after 4:30pm so will have to continue wandering around our old one, currently stuck in the middle of the kitchen. 
Made some sweetcorn soup for lunch. Along with the remainder of some home made baps, it made for a filling meal. If you want to have a go, here is the recipe:
Fry 1 diced onion in 2 tbls oil until nice and soft. Add 1/2 to 1 tsp chilli flakes and 24 oz frozen sweetcorn. Add 1 1/2 pints of stock (use 2 vegetable stock cubes)and simmer for 25 minutes until cooked. Season to taste with salt & pepper and a little lemon juice. Stir in 1/4 pint coconut milk or make up 4 teaspoons coconut milk powder and stir in. Liquidize until well blended then stir in 2-3 tbls fresh or 2 level tsps dried parsley/tarragon. If you need to thicken it, do so using 2-3 level teaspoons cornflour in a little milk, cook to thicken.

Got to get on with some chilli for tonight. Have just harvested the last of our sweet and chilli peppers and will make it using some of these and the 1/2 price beef bought yesterday.
Have finally finished my first rag rug for a long while. It is laid in front of our wood-burner which hopefully will protect our carpet from any falling embers.


  1. Your rug is lovely. Hope your washing machine has arrived safely. It sounds like you got a good deal on it.

  2. Yes we did. We paid the same price as 8 years ago including 2 years warranty.
