Sausage Fingers!!!

How lovely to discover two new followers on my blog.
Hello ladies...........and welcome.

Sausage fingers? Well that's what mine feel like as I struggle with the fabric I have chosen for this flippin' doll dress. It is so slippy and has a mind of it's own. I will persevere and it will get done but there may be a few swear words along the way.....maybe more than a few!!!

Yesterday I was very good and made hubby a fruit cake using my Bero recipe for Easy Fruit Cake which is boiled. I had no run of the mill mixed fruit so I measured out a mixture of dried fruits I did have.......apricot, mango, pineapple and cranberries. All part bags that needed using up. I tasted a little piece (I don't like fruit cake) and it tasted very nice. Hubby and DD declared it yummy.
So that's four things used up and a little more space in the cupboard.
Today I will make a lemon cake and some scones. Although we love scones I don't make them that often as we only like them on the day they are made and there are usually too many. I am going to follow Pam from A New Life In Wales and try freezing some cooked ones to warm up in the microwave and that will solve that problem.
It's cold, dark and wet here today so what nicer way to spend the afternoon.....baking in a nice warm kitchen.

Thanks for visiting today.


  1. A savoury scone is always handy to have in the freezer to go with soup/stews. Good luck with the slippery fabric.

  2. I never heard of easy boiled fruit cake but I'd happily come round for a slice! Your cooking always sounds so yummy.

    Yes freezing should take care of the extra scones.

    All the best.

  3. Oh MM......Leek and potato soup with cheese scones is one of most favorite meals. Love it-x-

    You'd be welcome any time Sandy-x-
