Is it Spring?

It was a cold misty start today, but it soon turned in to lovely spring day.

Alison was the first to arrive from Hampshire, followed by Chris. We were soon having cups of coffee and tea together with Banana, Pecan and Sultana Muffins.

 Caroline would not be with us  as she was teaching today and after a phone call from Amanda, who would also not be coming as she was not well.

 We hope you feel better soon Amanda.

Chris was cutting 2 1/2" strips in to smaller pieces to make a quilt called 'Twinkle' from the book Scrap-Basket Sensations by Kim Brackett.

Alison was hand sewing hexagons to make a Grandmother's Flower Garden using 1930's fabrics.

Chris had to take the Tuesday Puppy Berry to agility class, so would not be with us for lunch.

For lunch we had omelette and salad, with a Count on Us Milk and Belgian White Chocolate Mousse from Marks and Spencer.

I was sorting our the pink and cream nine patches, this was a leaders and enders project.  I have to make another three blocks and plan to sash the blocks together with green and use the pink for the cornerstones.

Here is the recipe for the omelette, it is based on the Omelette Savoyarde from Delia Smith's Complete Cookery Course book.

6 Eggs
Butter and Olive Oil
2 Medium Potatoes peeled and cut into small cubes
4 Rashers of Smoked Bacon cut into pieces
1 Large Onion chopped
Black Pepper

Wash and dry the potatoes and fry in the butter and oil for about 10minutes until they are golden. Add the bacon and onion and cook until the onion is soft.

Beat the eggs and add the black pepper and pour over the potato bacon and onion mix and cook for and few minutes to allow the base to cook and finish off under a hot grill.

Until next time.
