A Busy Monday Morning

Don't know where the weekend went to, they seem to go by so fast these days. We were busy trying to paint the large window on the side of the house before it begins to rain again. We seem to have been doing this forever and there's one just as big to do on the front now. We also spent some of the weekend helping my bother an his family move house, to one just over the road from us. I keep being nosey now watching who's coming and going from there.
When I got up this morning the lilies in our garden had opened, they are such a lovely salmon pink colour.

I need to use up some veg I had bought last week so I made tomato and sweet pepper soup, and butternut squash and chili soup.

Next I used up the left over chicken from yesterday, for tonight's dinner I made chicken and broccoli bake, then I boiled the carcass and made chicken and veg soup. I have put the soups in containers to freeze. I have now got quite a few meals prepared in advance so perhaps I'll have more time for crafting.

We were running out of cakes so I made a few rock buns which I put strawberry jam in instead of currants as the kids don't like currants. Managed to take a few photos of these to show you with the old camera as Jack as taken my new one away with him.

You are so organised - all that baking and cooking! - It is the kind of thing I always intend to do, but never actually get round to! - Natalie x
