Passed in a blur

We've had a lovely weekend, we had to of the DGC to stay from Saturday evening until 5:30 today.
We've done gardening 
And found  this rather grumpy looking pepper.

Along with these more normal looking ones.

We also did some baking, we made choc chip cookies, I forgot to take a pic & made two of these
I call them chutney cakes, no it's not made with chutney.
Every year a friend of mine makes a lovely Christmas chutney  & borrows my maslin pan to make it in. When she returned the pan she also gave me all the left over dried fruit that she uses in the chutney. This included cranberries, apricots, dates, figs & sultanas. So I made the cakes, the DGC have taken one home to go in their lunch boxes next week

The cake looks scrummy. The pepper looks scary!

The pepper looks like the sorting hat from Harry Potter

The pepper is brilliant, like something from a sci-fi programme, pity That's Life is not still on TV, you could have got it featured I think.

Today I achieved nothing, I had great plans, I was going to sort out the last kitchen cupboard.  It contains all the crockery, mixing bowls,...
