We had a couple of bananas going brown, and some wrinkly apples - husband normally eats loads of fruit but hasn't lately, for some reason. I'm determined not to waste any food, so yesterday I had a baking morning - banana and walnut loaf, and apple & blueberry slump pie - some homemade pastry from the freezer which wasn't enough for a double crust pie, hence the 'slump' - basically an open tart with the sides folded up and over the edge. Bonus is there's no wasting any pastry and it's easy to make and is supposed to look rustic! The blueberries were the very last of our home grown ones from last year. And just to fill up the oven, I also made a batch of cheese scones, they'll be nice for lunches with a slice of cheese and the remaining salad.
I didn't notice my knee pain whilst I was busy in the kitchen (I was wearing the brace) but boy did it let me know all about it in the afternoon. I hope the x-ray today diagnoses the problem, although I won't get the results for a couple of weeks.
Husband is busy 3 days next week, Tues-Thurs, but so far we have Monday and Friday free. I'm planning on going to the caravan possibly on Monday, to stock the cupboards, do a clean up and take the creaky metal bed to the big new hospice charity shop. We're hoping they'll have a suitable divan bed in there to get instead, I'm pretty sure they will, but if not, there's another big furniture charity shop nearby, they have loads of beds in there. Then it'll be back to the van to install the bed, steam clean it if necessary and leave it for a few days to air. Then on Friday, depending on the weather, we might go and spend our first night there this year....exciting!
