A Wet Day Keeps Me In
She is now running lovely again.
It was then a trip into town to pick up some supplies, no point in wasting a fine day going into town.
When I got back I got started on making some Granola
I used this as a basic recipe Granola Recipe and added dried blueberries dried apples and cranberries that I had in store and chopped nuts instead of the coconut.
Next I got started on some mincemeat for Christmas,
I used Mary Berry's recipe here Mincemeat I omitted the peel and added cherries
It was smelling really Christmassy in the house while I was making this, It makes a change for me to get it made this early its usually an after thought and then its too late to make it.
I will be donning full waterproofs later for a wet walk with Sol, his favourite part of walking in the rain is getting towelled off when we get home, shame he cant do the same for me :-)
