The simple things.......

Without the kids rugby games on Sunday we have managed to reclaim some family time - we have had long family and friend lunches - time to clip the dog so she no longer looks like a badly matted wookie - mov ies - knitting - card games - afternoon teas.....

Only five more rugby Sundays to go and we can reclaim our Sunday for a few more months.

This Sunday I had a well balanced day.  cooking, baking, knitting, heading out to the beach for a picnic - all in all a great way to spend my one day off a week.

Here is the bread I baked quickly on Sunday afternoon to accompany the casserole I put in the slow cooker in the morning before we went out the beach.

I have been utilising my mothers old "warming tray" from the 1970s for bread proving - I put a teatowel on the warmer, put the bread tray on top then cover with another teatowel - it works so well in this cold weather.  Although taking the kid off the slow cooker ( if it is on low) and putting the baking tray on top with a couple of teatowels to cover the bread works as well.....



This week I will be using a fine french flour I have managed to get my hands on for my loaves.

Until next time

Looks like a good loaf! Oh, man it's cold down here at the moment! A crusty loaf and some soup are just what I need!
