Make the Bread, Buy the Butter…

A few years ago now when we lived in Torrance, CA our neighbors at the time bought Suzie a book by Jennifer Reece called “Make the Bread, Buy the Butter”, it’s a great read and we used to live by it. Suze more than me obviously I was just the contented recipient. Then we got ourselves the absolute time suck of sharing our home with a foster kid and it all went out of the window.

Now though in these difficult times the book is front and center again!

First up homemade bread again YAAAAY! This is a “No Knead/Artisan” loaf.
An English fave, Bourbon Biscuits (pronounced “Bor-bon” no alcohol is involved).
Eggs from our lovely neighbors, cannot wait for our Chickens to start laying.
Iced Coffee FANTASTIC!
Another English favorite “Hob Nobs”, don’t know if I’ve ever seen them in the US. These were SOOO much better than the ones you can buy though!
Lamb Burger with Feta, Sesame Bread Rolls and the Burgers were homemade by Suzie, we did not raise the sheep.
We are all Crackers!
Meat Pie, my absolute favorite!!!
Homemade Treacle Pudding with (homemade) Custard. Suzie does love me then.

Meat Pies for the future!
Chocolate Chip Cookies.
Honey Oat Bread rolls.
A Kitchen casualty.
