Lemons, Buttercups and A Meeting

1    Choc Chip Uru sent this along today and I love it – both for its philosophy and because I love lemons and cooking with lemons as you will see from my recipe pages!  You can add Lemon Curd, Lemon Butter Cake, Lemony Courgettes and more to that list!

Super Bowl, Maritime Museum and Painting

1   The Lemon Butter Cake (recipe to come later) that I was making this afternoon called for a very large bowl so I brought out the Family Super Bowl!  It has a brilliant design that allows it to be tipped up and remain stable when the mixture is being beaten and it holds 10 1/2 pints! It has been used for making Christmas puddings for years and years!

2   At The Maritime Museum in Falmouth a replica Bronze Age boat was launched today after months of work. It’s 16 metres long,  made from green oak and has been built using replica Bronze Age tools. It’s a sewn plank boat, a kind of boat unique to England and Wales.  The hull of the boat was made by stitching wooden planks together as nails had yet to be invented. You can find out more here.
