Man In The Kitchen
Yesterday Martin took over the cooking,
he wanted to have a go at doing some bread
The recipe is in my head and I was at hand to relate what had to be done, will have to write it down so he can do the bread more often.
One perfect loaf later.
He also offered to cook dinner, who am I to refuse that offer
When sorting out the barn he came across the Dutch Ovens we have, they are cast iron cooking pots, before the move we use to cook outside when ever the opportunity arose and used the Dutch Ovens to cook all kinds of things. If you go back through my blog to a few years ago you will see how we cooked with them. here is a link to some of the cooking we did with the Dutch Oven
Martin got a fire going and threw together some meat and vegetables in the Dutch Oven and it was set up on the tripod over the fire.
As the sun set dinner was cooked outside, something we used to enjoy and its lovely to be doing these things again on our smallholding.
Sol was there with us although he didn't really understand what we were doing out there in the dark.
I spent most of the day working on some new sewing lines
but I did get the first sheepskin combed out,
another few days and it will be properly dry and ready to use, perhaps on one of our cook outs.

Went to Carmarthen, took Blue Boy's head to be analyzed.
Bought fitting to plumb in washing machine £16.
Looked at kitchen and bathroom equipment, picked up feed from Carmarthen Farmers, 4xwhite 2xred.
Lucky's doesn't seem any worse.
John fitted washing machine to hot water pipes, wrong connections for cold water.
