Not much happened this week.
As I mentioned last week we said ‘See ya’ to my sister.
She headed off to Canada with her boyfriend and best friend.
I’m working on crocheting them scarves to match the beanies I made them. I’d forgotten how much easier crocheting is than knitting for scarves. I may even try crocheting them some fingerless gloves next if I have enough yarn.
We are going well with our veg weeknight meals. I made a sweet potato and chick pea curry one night and I adapted an old favourite to get moroccan tofu and greens.
On Thursday night I helped my team win a $20 three course cooking challenge which was fun. I expanded my camp cooking repertoire which is good.
Friday was full of meetings with various people and it was nice to be out and about for a change.
On Saturday B and I helped my parents put up a new gazebo for their backyard. It was hot hard work but we got done in the end.
Throughout the week I worked on this recipe for you. I have tried it with a few teas and they are all good but for the recipe I’ve gone with B’s favourite Earl Grey.
Earl Grey Tea Loaf
25g Butter, softened
1 cup Sugar
2 cups Self Raising Flour
3/4 cup Earl Grey Tea
Mix together butter and sugar. Add in egg and stir through.
Alternate adding flour and tea and mix until all well combine.
Pour batter into lined loaf tin and bake for one hour.
Test with a skewer to make sure its cooked through.
Cool in tin for 5 mins then place on a baking rack until completely cool.
Slice to serve.
