Today I tried another recipe as part of my self-inflicted challenge.
Moroccan-style Carrot Salad is definitely a success although I may have been a little heavy handed with the cayenne pepper ;-)
And on to other news. I have finished The Dress. Did you hear the happy dance from your place?
Hopefully at the wedding I can persuade someone to take a posed shot for me to show off.
After an hour or two of energetic effort my garden is planted out with beans, silverbeet (chard), redbeet, lettuce and just for balance sweet peas and geums. The daffodils which miraculously appeared in my vegetable patch three years ago have generously provided many blooms this year (they must love being ignored?) and my freesias have been abundant too. But women cannot live on flowers alone and I look forward to a harvest of fresh vegetables over the summer.
Tonight I plan to complete the Navy Blue Blackwork and perhaps get a start on the Wales band of the UK Trip Book. Heston Blumenthal is on TV and will keep me company tonight.
