right now I'm....

...pulling up baby turnips with the sun on my back....
TURNIPS
....noticing a mammoth beetroot hiding amongst my beet patch, pulling it up also and planning to slow roast it, like this, to enjoy with red meat and a salad for dinner tonight....
BEETROOT
....trialling new Sourdough recipes, in search of the perfect loaf. For the loaf below I used the LunchLady recipe from her 3rd magazine, it's pretty good and super easy to make - which is a bonus.

....but I think I'm almost there with this loaf here - I've increased the hydration of my normal (original) loaf from 70% to 85% and its worked a treat!

....eating a different cake E.V.E.R.Y day. Today we're enjoying Donna Hay's Lemon Pound cake from this book, and it's simply divine...
LEMON CAKE
...how about you? what are you doing right now?

  2. Oh the rain Jane, isn't it lovely! We've had 37mm here today and it doesn't look like stopping anytime soon. I hope you are getting plenty of rain too. x

  4. I'm thinking I want to eat at your house!
    We are getting a few tomatoes here and probably seeing the end of our pawpaws very soon. I am not looking forward to the warmer and warmer weather. I am however getting some reading in, about time really.
    Check out that beetroot!

  5. Oh wow, that beetroot! I hope the roasting was successful. I am starting to feel the 'end of year' pressure as we talk about transition to school and enrollments for next year...reports are just around the corner! xxx
