This week's round up
It's been a busy week! As you can see my hair is now a short bob and blonde. Definitely a luxury but I felt with a new job I needed a new look. It's taking a bit of getting used to but I think I like it. I can still do my purple toner on it ;-)
We had a big family dinner for OH's daughter's 20th birthday. I made a chicken lasagne where I used my white sauce to make the chicken sauce bit.
I layered it up with GF lasagne sheets and a home made tomato sauce (with a ton of 'hidden' veggies in it for the veggie phobes)
Then topped off with grated goats cheese to make a totally delicious and gluten/dairy free lasagne. No one noticed the difference!!
I've been successfully defrosting and heating the meals I made for the freezer. Yeay!!
I finished upcycling the hook rack and painted the radiator purple (looks darker in this pic) and am pleased with result. I've ordered a wee shoe rack to fit in the space between the radiator and the corner. Just the woodwork now to finish off.
I picked a handful of peas. TBH I've not had much success with them at all but I'll do an update on my poor vegetable crops this weekend.
I scored some reduced goats milk today with another 3 days before the use by date. I'm planning to make some yoghurt and soft cheese with it.
I bought some lovely goats milk yogurt with live cultures as my starter so I'm hopeful it'll work the same way I used to make cows milk yogurt.
I also attended the funeral of my colleague's husband. It was a humanist service and a fitting celebration of a genuinely good man. It makes you stop to appreciate everything and reminds me to enjoy life to the fullest every day.
