I think we all ought to take a day off on a whim. A day off for no reason in particular. A day for ourselves.
This Friday, I spent the day getting up to all sorts of things ME things:
I MADE MY OWN BUTTONS!
Remember playing with Shrink Plastic as a nipper?
Well I fancied a little mess about with some for nostalgia’s sake.
This is what I wound up with! I am rather pleased with the result.
If you would like to see a tutorial for these buttons, please visit The Workshop.
I MADE TEA (LOTS OF IT)
I drunk plenty of tea in this lovely Wedgwood cup from my dear friend Simplyjolielaide.
I MADE SOME CARDS:
I am not great at this but I do like to try to add a more personal touch to the post I send out!
I WATCHED KIDS TELLY
I MADE BISCUITS
I have been meddling with recipes AGAIN….this recipe actually called for Cayenne and black pepper but it was cold! I didn’t want to go out and so instead used Yukari which in my opinion worked well. It served to add a tangy dimension that goes well with the cheese. (waiting for glances from my fave 3 recipe ladies: Catty, Sugarbar and Sasasunakku).
Worship Blues’ Pukka Shiso Cheesy Biscuits
125g Plain Flour
25g Grated Parmesan
Pinch of salt
A teaspoon or 2 of Yukari (dried shiso furikake)
Get your hands dirty and rub the flour and butter together till the mixture looks bitty. Add a splash of milk if it look too dry.
Chuck in the parmesan and the yukari.
Knead the mixture into a ball and roll out.
Cut into rounds and throw it into a preheated oven (180 degrees) for about 10 mins,
I intend to do very little with the remainder of my weekend. What about you?
Grab a glass of wine and enjoy your cheesy treats BUT don’t blame me if the recipe goes tits up! I am but a novice!!!
