Hope, Lunch and A Cake

In hope of a lovely display round about New Year, I have ‘planted’ hyacinths in Mum’s beautiful old glasses.  They  are  now  in  a  dark cupboard  for the  next few weeks until  there  are  good  root  systems  to  be  seen.

We enjoyed Frittata for lunch today.

It has rained, hard, again, all day so this morning I put haloes on my new glass angels and this afternoon baked a Banana and Raisin Loaf which is very tasty.

Radio 3, Soup and Angels

We have stopped listening to the Today programme on Radio 4 in the mornings as the combative nature of the interviews and the general bad news is not contributing to our well-being. Instead we are listening to music, this morning on Radio 3, and caught the delightful  Elizabeth Alker in her Breakfast slot. One of the pieces she played was Jeanne by Georges Brassens and I loved it so thought I would share it with you here. If you’d like a translation of the words, click on this link.

Super delicious new soup for lunch, Herby Broccoli and Pea, one I shall repeat.

I’m loving making Angels for the Christmas markets. Here are the latest bunch, all foiled and ready for soldering.

Rainbow, Reflection and Cookies

Drawing the curtains back this morning I was greeted by a beautiful bright rainbow.

The reflections on the Penryn River as we sang this morning were very lovely.

Last time we went on The People’s Vote March, I was touched by a young woman’s generosity when she passed out home-made Brownies to the crowd around her. Today  I have baked 50 Oat and Cherry Cookies to hand out to fellow protesters. I packed them up before taking a photo so here are the three saved for us!

Basket, Pancakes and Clematis

There are still lots of lovely colourful baskets of flowers in Truro.

I made Lemon and Raisin Pancakes for a treat this afternoon.

We brought in a couple of Clematis flowers today.

Nasturtiums, Calianthus and Cake

Steady rain all day so these photos are from indoors and taken on a long zoom. The Nasturtiums have crept over the wall from next door and are a very welcome splash of colour in a dark corner.

I do love how drips collect on stems and flowers.

It will be our Annual Concert tomorrow evening with a visiting choir with whom we will do a workshop, then share a buffet supper before the doors are opened to our audience. My contribution to the buffet is a delicious dessert, Tunisian Almond and Orange Cake . You can find the recipe here

Nasturtium, Jelly Babies and Meatloaf

There is just one Nasturtium in our quirky monkey planter.

Sometimes only jelly babies will do!I made ‘A Most Excellent Vegetarian Roast’ today to share with veggie friends and it is very tasty! There was too much mixture for the tin so I made balls and fried them for our meal this evening. The recipe came from The Observer Food Monthly from August 2019.

I have posted the recipe for yesterday’s Jackfruit Lasagne on my recipe page. Here is the link https://mybeautfulthings.com/recipes-savoury/jackfruit-lasagne-vegan-or-vegetarian/

Hedgehogs, Lasagne and September Flowers

One of the roundabouts in Truro has won an award! It is a delight to drive around but hard to take photos of so I have borrowed this one. If anyone can tell me the photographer, please do so that they can be credited. “The Roundabout Appreciation Society (RAS) praised the “quirky” roundabout in Truro, which features hedgehogs named Cecile, Patricia, Denzil and Kizzy.”

Truro roundabaout voted best in UK 2019

I have made another Jackfruit Lasagne to share with veggie friends. It is truly delicious!

In our late September garden there are Fucshia, Japanese anemones, Clematis and amid them all, a smiling Welly Dog.
