I am still liking and munching on my coconut ice. However I was left with half a tin of condensed milk in the fridge. I have used it now and made a small-ish amount of chocolate fudge. I have not attempted to make fudge for donkeys years. I was always told it was difficult to make, along with toffee. It is chilling in the fridge. I used plain chocolate as that was all I have in the cupboard. Plain is not the first type I would go for. Maybe next time I may use an electric whisk, we shall see. I am eager and a little wary of trying it, incase it doesn't come out okay. I suppose that is something normal when trying new things. If it does turn out okay (I need more faith in myself at times) then I will try it with a milk chocolate, and I shall try rum and raisin fudge. Oh and find a recipe for banana fudge. No, it's banana toffee that I go nuts for, not banana fudge! Maybe worth a try though?
This morning the WI were doing the refreshments for the Egremont Farmers Market. I could only stay an hour as I had to get back to take Dad to an appointment. I did notice that on the stall next door, they were selling hanks of Portland aran, from sheep at St Bees, for £8 per 100g. My tongue was hanging out, espeically as I am knitting with aran at the moment, and well into cabling.
Then this afternoon, was the usual Friday trip to Tesco. Exciting. There was a bitter wind, coming, literally off the sea. It has been blowy all afternoon. The sky over Cold Fell has been as black as a gorilla's dangly bits. No rain here though!
Tomorrow promises to be exciting - Mary-Jane's first Christmas Party in the afternoon and a trip to the library in the morning. I have requested two books, The Pudding Club's newest book and 'American Baked' - muffins, cakes and brownies. I'm not sure how long it will be before they arrive.
