We've been on holiday this week and so far we hadn't really spent any money, the tickets for the trip to Manchester were paid for last month. Yesterday we decided to go out for a bit, so we did and it was well worth it.
Dan made a picnic - lentil soup, a bun, date and cashew bars, a scone and some coffee, we headed off up to Windermere. I wanted to have a look at food processors in the flesh and he wanted to get some more breadmaking inspiration. I was far too excited to pick up these washable cleaning sponges (£1.99) and he was not quite excited enough to get some gingerbread. We went over Kirkstone Pass and ate our picnic halfway along.
This morning the unstoppable bread maker made more dough, I attended and sorted out my recipe box. It's something I haven't done for ages and there were things in there that I'd never make now, or that I have a recipe I prefer in one of my newer books, it's now nicely slimmed down and I'm far more likely to look there for some inspiration.
