I’ve been busy in the kitchen today, preparing meals for our upcoming three day weekend away in the caravan. So what have I made? Asparagus quiche for a start, made with fresh new season asparagus, that should do us for a meal or two. Then some bacon and egg bites, a recipe I found on BBC Food, some of these had double yolk eggs. Very tasty too, and will do for lunches while we are away. It’s always handy to have some easy meals prepared, and I made a date loaf as well.
Baking for the weekend
With a major birthday coming up fast, I had to go and see about getting my drivers license renewed. My eye test was done at recent visit to the eye specialist, when I went for my annual checkup. Then I needed a visit to the doctor, so he could ascertain that I had my wits about me, and answer all sorts of questions, including the date, the name of the Prime Minister, and various other questions including some mental arithmetic, although nothing to actually do with driving. He did ask if I felt safe driving, which I do. Just as well he didn’t enquire if I ever had trouble finding my car in a car park – my car is a small silvery one, just like most of the others I see parked up. When that was all over I had to take my various signed and stamped forms to the AA (Automobile Assoc), get my photo taken, pay them some money, and my new license will be forwarded to me shortly. Whew – what a rigmarole!
So what else have I been doing? A little knitting on a blue toddlers cardigan, using up some left over wool I had hanging about. My knitting bag will be packed away in the caravan when we leave tomorrow, together with some hand stitching.
Thee weather promises to be nice and fine for the three day weekend, Monday is a public holiday so we should have a nice relaxed time.
