After a little early summer holiday, I’m back on the blog today!
We had a lovely time in the Netherlands. I would love to say that I’ve got posts queued up ready to share all of our adventures, but the furthest I’ve got is to upload my photos. I had my trusty notebook with me, in which I jotted down a diary of each day’s adventures, which will be a major aid when I come to write the posts. I hope to get these written and shared with you over the coming weeks!
Whilst July is going to be quieter and an opportunity to catch up with friends and do lots of walking with the dog, August and September are already looking packed, we have family or friends coming to stay with us almost every week, a Let’s Bake meeting, a Cake Fest making adventure (more on this soon!), a holiday club at church, and work (of course) as well!
However, on Sunday, we had a really relaxing afternoon. Of course the tennis was on (which is always nerve-racking, when you support Andy Murray) but I took the opportunity to knock up some brioche buns for us to enjoy (with burgers) in front of the Euro 16 final. I used this recipe and they really couldn’t have turned out any better! I’m always tempted to knead dough more than is needed, but barely touched these. I was so pleased with them and it’s so satisfying chowing down on homemade bread.
Filled with some lamb and redcurrant burgers, chunks of greek feta and gherkins – and accompanied by homemade slaw and tattie salad, it really was a satisfying, tasty dinner.
