Well, before I get cracking I just wanted to share what Man-thing made last night – peanut butter ice-cream by CCK! I’m really so proud of Man-thing when he gets all inspired and twitchy in the kitchen – this ice-cream maker is 100% his territory! I’ll just be trolling the web for interesting flavours, but somehow he gets a kick out of it.
We’re still in early days but this is part of the learning curve so that I can hopefully cross off ice-cream cake from the to-do list I posted yesterday – too many things I want to do in life, kitchen-wise! Of course, the best part is that whatever happens in the kitchen naturally ebbs out into the world and has some sort of impact. I try to share almost everything I make with family and (if willing) friends because that is the way in which I express my affection and love.
Alas, today there is no new recipe that I’ve tried out because we’re going to visit my father in law, who injured himself rather badly when cycling by himself. He bashed his leg hard against the bike…and then the ground…with the result being a massive amount of internal bleeding and swelling, apparently. :(All in all it means he has to sit for a week with his leg in the air, which is not happiness for such an sprightly gentleman. Man-thing and I decided to pick up a couple of pizzas and snacks (with another leftover cauliflower burger for me!), round up Man-thing’s sister, and go visit the invalid and my poor MIL. So hopefully we can bring some cheer to someone who always manages to get smiles going with his quick laugh and warm heart.
In the meanwhile, have a gander at my new page – Recipes! It lists all the recipes on the website under the proper heading. I’ve left out one or two recipes which were essentially just reports that I had tested out someone else’s recipe – I always try my very best to give credit where it is due, but recently I’ve started to trying to modify recipes so that I can feel I’ve contributed somehow (though I still credit!). So yes, cast your eyes about and see what snacks and tasty treats jump out at you, or what savoury stomach-rumblers cry out for your attention. I’m going to try and be diligent and update it as I post, so here goes – just click the microscopic chocolate disc to be transported to the page 😀
