Robin chicks, Resolutions lunch and Basics cheese spread (1)
The WI lunch was this afternoon and we had a lovely time. The discussion of the Resolutions was the usual lively affair. Both the Shepherds pie and cheesecake went down well. I had, as usual, allowed a few extra portions, and, as usual, a few extra people arrived. Several people asked me for the recipe for the cheesecake and I took mischievous delight in telling them how little it cost 😉
When I got back, I got straight out of the glad rags, into some jeans and got out in the garden to put up the bean poles and plant the runner beans. I really need to do a LOT of weeding, but it won’t happen tomorrow. Hopefully on Friday.
This evening, I tried out a small jacket potato and salad with the basics cheese spread on the potato. It took a little while, but the cheese spread melted into the hot potato and made a very tasty filling.
