A sunny weekend

The sun has been shining and has certainly brought some restorative health and vitality to the French Thomas household.

A little shopping trip gave me all the ingredients I needed to add to my growing collection of pickles, preserves and liqueurs! Today I have made two rum based liqueurs, one with passionfruit, the other with my favourite, lychees and vanilla- I can’t wait to try them 🍷. Both from a Tessa Kiros book I haven’t spent enough time with.

And I wasn’t sure baking in such heat was a great idea but tomorrow at work we have a cake sale so I have made some strawberry cheesecake cupcakes (from the Hummingbird Bakery cookbook) and a chocolate cake slab (Nigella). It only seems fair we try some after dinner…..!!!

So, off to make a mini end of a lovely weekend BBQ πŸ€—πŸ‘πŸ€—

    Decking looks great! Clearly much slaving away in a hot kitchen on a very hot day. And the result? It all looks extremely yummy! Fingers crossed for Thursday. Bxx
