Fat Mum Slim's Photo-a-day for April.)
I am so, so thankful for an extra-long weekend. I played in the yard with these hooligans for a few hours this afternoon, and it was so nice. I also spent a large portion of my day in the kitchen, which was also so nice. I made Teresa's butter rolls, Walnut Lentil Burgers, Lemon Yogourt Cake, and a batch of pasta sauce. And consequently washed a lot of dishes.
I've been listening to a book on CD while driving this week. The book's not that great, but I love listening to it as opposed to the usual news radio, music, etc. Just for a change. There are no news interruptions, the woman reading it has a lovely voice, and it's not hurried at all. I feel like she has the time to pay attention to each and every word that someone took the time to write, so I should listen. Also, it's much slower to be read to than to read something, so I think I remember details much better than if I were to fly through the book in a few days.
Oh, and the other fun thing I've been doing lately - sprouting!
these BioSnacky jars (they're worth it just to be able to say 'BioSnacky'!) with the lid and the little stand to keep the sprouts well drained, so I picked one up. I enjoyed some radish sprouts the other day (they're pictured when they were just a few days along) and have some alfalfa ones on the go now. They're so fresh and delicious.
I'm curious - what's been going on in your kitchen lately?
Have a lovely Easter weekend.
