Last Of The Baking
Today I was doing the last of the baking,
It was the turn of the sausage rolls,
I had a bag of minced pork in the freezer from our own pigs.
And a pack of frozen puff pastry
The pork was mixed with onion, grated carrot and grated apple, a bit of fresh sage and thyme,
half of them I sprinkled with poppy seeds.
I had half a bag of minced pork left, already defrosted
so it had to be used.
similar mixture to the sausage rolls but with the addition of some breadcrumbs and mustard I made up a batch of pork meatballs, cooked them up and are now in the freezer ready for a couple of meals. That's me done cooking this week, Martin will be home tonight for a few weeks, he is planning on rustling up a few meals.
Storm Barbara blew through today, one tree over and a window blown in on the shed, a little job for Martin tomorrow.
I hope everyone has managed to brave the storm.
