Now I know not every one is interested in all the "hype" over the Jubilee or the Olympics and I can totally understand why. However, I am trying to get into the spirit for the boys sake. No. 1 Son is desperately keen for the GB Hockey team to do well, as it is his No. 1 passion. I doubt it will feature highly in the BBC coverage, but we will be following it. No. 2 Son is interested because they are using it as a learning tool at School.
I've been enough of a misery in general over the last 10 months, so I am trying not to get too jaded about this aswell. Our Church is taking advantage of all the festivities to hold a Jubilee fair fundraiser and aswell as being roped in to Face Painting on the day itself, I promised to make some cards for one of the stalls.
So here are my first few efforts, made today:-
Hopefully a lot more to come before June.
Also today I made my own attempt at the lovely Frugal Queen's lasagne, after my recent cookery lessons and if I say so myself it didn't come out half bad. At least it smells fabulous, it is actually going in the freezer for next week.It doesn't look as dark in real life as it does in the photo, so it's not actually burnt.
For tea I did homemade Carbonara:-
Blitzed some leftover bacon and left over cooked ham (as I didn't have enough of either on their own) in the food processor with an onion, fried them off with some mushrooms. Made my own **HOMEMADE** cheese sauce, with Froogs microwave method. It used 2/3 rds of a block of mature cheddar and was very cheesy. Cooked the spaghetti and added that and the sauce to the frying pan, gave it all a good stir around and served with some crusty bread. I would have done salad as well but we are nearly out of food this week. My DH said it tasted much better than the normal packet stuff. I am doing a little dance as I type this. Hurrah!!
Lots of Love Arwedd xxx
