Kibble

November 17, 2010

11

I don’t remember quite how this happened, but a while ago our Twitter friend Marley Terrier told Debora at Licked Spoon that he bet I could even make kibble look delicious. Today I got the perfect opportunity to try and prove the theory when Ernie received a gift through the post. He’d won a prize […]

Beautiful Vegetables

September 5, 2010

After returning from our recent trips away there were some interesting crops to collect from the garden. If there is something in the garden more beautiful than cream coloured borlotti beans, speckled with scarlet, in their scarlet pods speckled with cream, then I have yet to find it. Then there is the collection of crazy […]

Winter Gardens

On Sunday we finally got into the garden for the 1st time this year. It was sunny, but VERY cold and frosty. So frosty in fact that I couldn’t get through the soil to belatedly plant the shallots, garlic and spring onions. I am off to try and do that shortly. George and I emptied […]

I have been a bit quiet on the blogging front recently, mainly as I have been busy and taking lots of photographs. This week I have had fun playing with techniques from the lovely ladies at Coffee Shop. They have lots of great tips and tutorials but I particularly like the Photoshop actions that they write […]

Yesterday I travelled down to London to the Scandinavian Kitchen to a photography workshop run by Chris Windsor and organised by Helen from a Forkful of Spaghetti. Arranging for someone to pick up George from school was the main bit of planning that I had to do, along with charging camera batteries and packing a […]
