July Sampler

The end of another month. How they do fly by. It's been a busy month what with the end of school and all that involves. One week into the holidays and I'm still smiling :o)

 Here's my July sampler, I've managed to squeeze in a bit of crochet this time and also some salad in there amongst the jam, cake and meringues, I'm all for a balanced diet. I hope you like it!


Do you want to see what else I've been doing? It's Lucy's fault.


Lucy was much more generous than me and bought this book for her son. I bought it for ME ME ME. My daughter is consumed with longing for it. She will just have to save up for her own copy. This one is MINE.




What fun!
And how about some more colourful fish?



Tray baked salmon and veg Jamie Oliver style. It was all cooked in a very hot oven for about 15 mins. The potatoes were parboiled  but I think an improvement would be to bake them on the tray first until they are brown and crisp then add the other ingredients. Be generous with the olive oil. This was a roaring success and not a bite was left. I shall be writing this one up in my new recipe journal, more of which later.
