Today, I added another four bags of chopped turnip to the half-dozen already in the freezer. This is so handy for when I'll be making Scotch Broth with little time.
No, not with a little Thyme, but with little time.
Bags of chopped turnip, ready to throw into a pan of Scotch Broth at a later date.
And seeing as I'm talking of my vegetables (I know, you've missed hearing of them), here are some of my peeled and chopped veggies from Saturday.
All from The Plot.... yes, I did say it (and not just once):
'It's so amazing. Ah-ma-zing!'
Well, it is!
Now, y'all will be thinking I'm obsessed with food, but I have to show you this...
Dawn's carrot cake.
These are not the days on which to be making New Year resolutions. Unless the resolution is to eat as much cake as possible.
Of every cake I have ever eaten, this is simply the best.
If cakes were actors, this would be Colin Firth in that scene.
If cakes were cars, this would be the Land Rover Discovery (not that there are many apparent similarities, but they are both my favourite in their respective classes).
If cakes were holidays, this carrot cake would fly me to Vancouver, take me East across Canada, through the Rockies, over the Prairies, all the way to the fishing villages of Nova Scotia.
It would then drive me south into the USA, through the New England coast, and keep driving until we reached New Jersey. There, it would allow me to wallow in the luxury of 'our seaside home' (remember it?) for a while, before heading me into Virginia....ahhhh, Virginia, land of Mr Jackson (you remember him?), into North Carolina, across the Blue Ridge Mountains..... Ahhh from where we'd head West and drive into the sunset day after day after day.
Into the Wild West....
Er... I seem to have got slightly carried away here. Food does that to me.
And this old favourite, PW's Chocolate Sheet cake, sat on the counter on Saturday, waiting to be remembered. Even cakes aren't keen on being usurped by bigger, better ones.
'Chocolate sheet cake, I can assure you, you will not be forgotten.'
We shall not cease to bake you. Over and over and over. If you guys have never tried it, make it. You wont regret it.
Though your waistline may...
