Well, it rained. It finally rained this week and wowsers, it’s amazing what a bit of precipitation can do. The trees, grass and folk of our farm have perked up no end and I swear I can already see tinges of green around the place. Here’s hoping that everyone else in need of rain ‘events’ were as lucky?
The Friday List
Kicking off today’s Friday List with a timely little poem about rain and granola recipe to match, from the always wonderful Eat this Poem
Weekend baking; this dense chocolate loaf cake, a frozen fruit crumb tart, these raw almond linzer cookies with jam filling from Oh Ladycakes and perhaps a batch of these lavender cupcakes with candied primroses?
And speaking of cake; I could do some damage to the old paypal account on this website...definitely want the little deer cupcake toppers (cute addition to our dessert for next month’s Farm Kitchen lunch?? Or a little too much..?)
Now the weather has cooled a little, I’m a bit excited about making this rustic coconut and lamb curry
I know this is controversial but I tend to agree with the Huffington Post that quinoa is a bit weird (but maybe I’m not cooking it properly?) anyway, here are their grain alternatives…
Making fruit leather at home rocks, as I discovered this week thanks to this article…
And also via The Guardian, could this be the perfect banana bread recipe?
I honestly love this website; Honestly Yum
