hot cross buns!
home made hot cross buns!!
mr w had the brilliant idea
of making his own hot cross buns for good friday.
we shopped for ingredients
as soon as the kitchen benches were clean
he amassed the ingredients
began his labour of love.
at 2pm we ate.
they may not look like bought ones
but sweet and spicey they were,
smelling slightly yeasty
and mmmmmm..mmm! delicious...
spread with butter...meltingly...
the other dozen and a half were eaten
by the time i thought about taking a photo..hehe!
but that's not all...
these are a healthier accompaniment
made with wholemeal spelt flour
they have a nuttier flavour.
dark chocolate pieces and craisins were studded through
they were meant to have chocolate crosses
but we ate them while they were hot and crossless..hehe!
an easy morning
a bit of a read through some canadian magazines miss b sent over for me...
a friend dropped in to share a cold drink..
still hot and humid...
the guys picked up a queen size mattress for mr m to sleep on
as he's been camping on the couch for a couple of months now...
washing hung out...
a shower of rain...
i think a bit of knitting is on the cards,
i've promised a policewoman friend a beanie like the other
but just a bit purpler and a bit longer,
for those cold winter night shifts.
have a good friday...really good!
