Let There Be Cake
As mentioned before, August is a big birthday season (the other majority of friends and family is March). John, Lexi and myself were all born in August. Tomorrow is my brother's birthday and today, I am baking him a teacake - Chocolate jam gluten free cake. It's actually Nigella Lawson's Store Cupboard Chocolate - Orange cake. Don't think calling it chocolate jam gluten free cake would sell many slices. I really like making it and using raspberry or strawberry jam instead of marmalade. Never was that big into marmalade. At the weekend, I am going to bake him a proper birthday cake.
Also we have a lot of courgette/zucchini on the go so, I would like to make some courgette loaf (zucchini bread). I am going to use this recipe.
I got a few things sewn yesterday. I was in Cavan on Saturday and really am out of interfacing. The little purse is one of the things that I got done yesterday.
John took the picture of the Moon. It was on his camera. I decided to share it. The moon was amazing last night.
Must get a move on! Hope your Monday treats you well.
