Our local agricultural show takes place tomorrow. Amongst other things I'm going to enter...
1. My tapestry cushion which only took me 12 years in total to make (10 years to complete the tapestry and a further 2 years to finally get round to making it into a cushion).
2. A jar of rhubarb and ginger jam. It's my first attempt and it seemed a good way of making use of the rhubarb from the rhubarb jungle in the garden. The jam smelt delicious but I've not actually tasted it yet as it made EXACTLY 7 jars. One will be opened at the show tomorrow.
3. I've discovered a new favourite scone recipe. However I could only find my huge cutter and ended up with five giant scones instead of twelve normal ones. Having now found the proper cutter I'll attempt to make these again for breakfast tomorrow, the best four will then be getting entered.
I've gone a bit daft this year and am entering loads of categories. Some friends are also involved and we all get quite competitive. Good harmless fun! The weather forecast for Saturday is not looking good sadly. I've also to spend some of the morning bag packing to raise funds for the nursery which I'm looking forward to - not! However I don't need to worry about being left with masses of baking to eat as we have a garden party at the nursery on Sunday and there's to be a home baking stall. I'm manning it though, that probably means I'll be tempted to buy other people's baking. Och well, it's all for a good cause...
Off now to have a go at an iced chocolate cake (unfilled).
