A Gift, A Card and Moussaka

15 Jan

A box of scented delights arrived in the post today thanks to a lovely ex-pupil with whom I have been in touch for many years. L admired one of my angels before Christmas and so I sent it to her and this is her thank you – and much appreciated too.

The gorgeous card is a design by Catherine Rowe and is made using a scraperboard. This fact pleased me as my Dad used scraperboard for many of his etchings. I love the detail here especially on the bluebells and butterflies.

I made a large Moussaka this afternoon, for tea tonight and to put several servings into the freezer for later.

    I love making “lots” of soups, stews, and casseroles so I can stash some in the freezer for a lazy day’s dinner.

    LOVE that card!

      Yes! They are our own version of a “Takeaway!” 🙂

    We love moussaka. It would never make it to the freezer in my house. 😉

      It might if you had made 8 servings! 🙂

        Depends how big the servings are. 🙂 But you’re probably right.
