August Plans

Monthly Sampler July 2012



~ Make jam. I picked about 5 lbs of redcurrants before going on holiday. They are in the freezer waiting for raspberries to be bought to make  redcurrant and raspberry jam

~ Re-read Nigel Slater's Kitchen Diaries in anticipation of volume II being published in September.
There are also new books by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall and Diana Henry to be looked forward to.

~ Continue the war with my daughter over mess made and tasks left undone. Nail varnish is the current battle. I have no objection to her wearing it. I just wish the towels, window sills and furniture didn't wear it as well. I hate the smell of nail varnish remover, am sure it cannot be good for her, and fail to see why she thinks I should buy it for her.

~ Enjoy 'Not Camping' which is due to take place between 15th- 22nd August. I'm planning some lovely things to eat and drink and looking out for something good to read.
