It's been a very funny week this week and today was no different.I've been in a lot of pain over the last few weeks with sciatica in my left leg, from where my spine is collapsing and I've been having physio every Friday. By today, Friday, I was back in a lot of pain, not helped by having to hunt for my lost car key and my gas meter cupboard key. I thought "here we go, it's going to be one of those funny days again" Then the postie came with 3 letters. The first was the phone bill which did nothing for my mood. The second was from the Benefits people telling me I was going to get some financial help with paying rent etc. Hooray I thought, now I can keep my little car!
Then I opened the third one; this was a complete surprise and the icing on my happy cake. It was a lovely birthday card from Maria here with some added die cuts, which will be perfect for adding to my craft day makes when I've decorated them.
Later, I still couldn't find my car key and had to go to physio in a taxi. To cheer myself up after, I decided to make a granary loaf to practise getting to know my oven.
Having set it to rise in the oven on very low, I also found some cooking apples to be used up and thought I'd make an apple pie and a few scones too. Perched on my stool I set to work on my dough. I set my apple pastry mix to cool in the fridge and mixed my scone mix. I set this aside to make up my apple pie and put this to bake first in the oven. I rolled my scone mix into 6 large scones and added these to the oven as the pie was finishing. My, I thought, that pie looks good!!
When my scones were done I intended to eat one with the strawberry syrup I'd made to go with them but they looked awful!! Like little bread buns. Yes you guessed it, I mixed the bowls up and now I have the most delicious Apple Scone Pie and six Pastry buns destined for the birds!!
I couldn't help trying the pie with a spoon of ice cream and it was delicious.
I wonder what tomorrow will bring?
