Dan is the baker here, but he's at work and I had foolishly run out of bread so something had to give, I was nice and cosy at home and didn't want to go to the shop, plus we have plenty of ingredients in the pantry. I made some scones.
To virtually everyone this is a total non-story I know, but the simple act of getting my hands into the sticky gloop is a big thing, I really don't like having wet hands. I'm fine when the rest of me is wet, but just my hands, it makes me feel queasy just to think about it. At least once a month I like to try a food I am a bit scared of, or to do something around food that I'm a bit scared of, today it was to make these scones with my hands and not use the food processor.
I can happily report they are really quite tasty and touching the mixture wasn't actually as bad as I remembered.
It's another thing onto the not-shopping list, the more we're making ourselves, the more we're looking around for things to make, we've not decided on the next new thing yet, although chutney has been mentioned a few times. Again, chutney is a basic thing, but it's a newish food to me so it seems very exciting!
