It's time for T on Tuesday at Elizabeth and Bleubeard's place, so mosey on over with your beverage in hand and see what is happening this week!
After I saw the strawberry gin last week I did this, strawberries cut up in a glass with Appletiser, which is made just from apples, nothing else except it is carbonated. I should have crushed the strawberries a little, this was the last of the Appletiser left from a BBQ. Anyway the strawberries were nice afterwards.
As we meander through my mug collection here is one of two mugs I bought for work, I had a whole collection of mugs and cups at work too! These tended to be used for soup, and this one is filled with - Mutant Tomato Soup! I made it up as I went along, but it was 3 (or was it 4) onions chopped, lots of garlic cloves chopped, ginger chopped, and all of that sauteed before adding the whole mutant tomatoes, well chopped a bit but with skins and seeds, a lot of spice, a few carrots, few potatoes, couple of handfuls of red lentils, and lots of chopped rosemary. I put it all in the pressure cooker for 15 minutes then when it had cooled a little I used a blender stick thing to blend it. I took some to Richard too and he said it was good and I should make some more. Just waiting for more mutant tomatoes to ripen!
So on our walk yesterday we saw a bunny in the distance..
it was at the top of this path we just walked up, the field below where you see a line of trees - that is where the river is, just the other side of the trees. It is a lovely walk down there. I took my camera becuase last time I didn't and there were buzzards flying low overhead. This time I spotted on in a tree, pointed and said what's that, and Shaun said nothing at which point it flew away - no photo!
thistles gone to seed already...
Alfie used to always be in front, but gets left behind more and more, we think he was eating rabbit poo!
Sooty was first to the gate. We spotted loads of ripe blackberries today, when we bought Bethany here because she wanted to pick some they were all unripe. We found some ripe ones a couple of miles down the road for her though in the field I showed you before with the White Horse view.
I finally made a decision and ordered a tripod and ball head, only to wonder if it was the right one, well tonight I cancelled it, it was going to be dispatched, I found the slightly different model was lighter in weight so I ordered a seperate legs and head, which will cost more but for the weight saving will be worth it I hope! It was only 1lb, or .44kg but every little helps with my back!
