.......I baked these Nutella cakes for World Nutella Day. The recipe gives the cooking time as 30 minutes but I found they were done after 23 and my oven normally takes longer than most recipes quote. Eat the same day for optimum tastiness, would be good eaten warm with ice cream or custard.
.......I read the book chosen for our reading group this month. It isn't a scary ghost story, if it were I couldn't read it! It's just over 150 pages and so I read it very quickly, but I am now re-reading it as I need to see if I can pick up on subtleties in the story I may have missed the first time. It's a good read though.
.......I was the very lucky recipient of a give away prize. Simone had very kindly offered to send one randomly picked comment leaver one of the beautiful hare and moonstone charms she had made and I was fortunate enough to be that randomly picked person.
The box it arrived in was so lovely in itself, wrapped with the palest purple ribbon complete with the sweetest heart charm
and nestled inside was the moonstone and hare charm. My photo is quite rubbish, but if you click on Simone's name above it will take you to her blog where you can see a much better photo. Thank you again Simone for this and the chocolate which accompanied my prize.
......... I wore stripes with spots! I love a dash of red and if there are polka dots with it too so much the better.
