Brrrrr! Put my head out of door and gardening aborted. Freezing out there. Will wait till Paul, my mowing man, starts up again on monday, weather permitting, and he may help with moving the compost into the pots. Oh forgot, that is the same time I get my back done by Julie Fletcher and her magic hot stones! Might as well make an effort and hope Julie can sort out the damage. No, better still, I will pay Paul extra and leave him a list of instructions. Getting sensible in my old age! Right, we have sorted that problem. Will now attempt some of Matthew Glenn Ward’s soda bread for lunch and see if it goes with pate’, then work on my book till the sun comes out.
The recipe for soda bread is here:http://www.telegraph.co.uk/foodanddrink/recipes/8784570/River-Cottage-Baking-recipes-international-breads.html?image=2
