Oh I am a silly B, I had a couple of pics of my meals yesterday, but it seems I have wiped them off the camera before I loaded them onto the computer. Oh well, never mind, I will tell you about them instead. Lunch yesterday was half a tin of baked beans spiced up a bit with minced garlic and turmeric. I plonked them on top of one and a half Staffordshire oatcakes, topped it with grated cheese, and back in the microwave for a couple of minutes. Lovely.
Dinner yesterday was a delicious two egg omlette, shame I haven't got the picture, it looked scrummy. I filled it with mixed vegetables out of the freezer, plus the last two chopped up spring onions. When I make an omlette I cook the underside on the hob, then put it under the grill to cook the top. That way it stays in one piece. I am hopeless at flipping food over in the pan. It almost filled the plate, but I managed to nudge it over to one side and add potato salad, small tomatoes, pickled onions, and pickled beetroot. Very nice.
I've done a test drive today on one of these Mug Shot thingy's. Dried pasta in a cheese sauce, just add hot water. I don't usually buy things you mix in a mug, they are mostly horrible. I saw these in Poundland, three for £1, I thought worth a try. I have to say though that I didn't roll over in ecstasy. The sauce wasn't particularly flavoursome, and some of the pasta didn't soften up, despite me waiting the full five minutes, adding more water, and stirring constantly. No, these instant dried food type things are only handy to take on a camping trip. I'll save the other two packets to use when I am away from home.
Here's another little teaser. I was struggling to make some flames for the artyfarty thing I'm making. This is what I have come up with, layered fabric. Not showing you any more. The eyes are done, now I need to add the blood, not sure what colour it should be though. Might change my mind and not do the blood, who knows what's going on in my mind, I certainly don't sometimes, ha ha.
More time taken up on the cat rescue today, another lady rang to say she wants to adopt a cat or two. She liked Garfield and Duchess, I had to disappoint her as they went yesterday to their new home. Not to worry, she can't take a cat untill next month, we might have some more by then. I am waiting for a text to go out and collect one shortly. It has been roaming for a month and despite putting posters up to find the owner, no one has come forward. We will take it in and keep looking. Eventually it will be rehomed if no one can be found.
