I'm being Suzie Homemaker today. I donned the new apron that my sister made me and proceeded to make Linda's Christmas Cake recipe from razzledazzlequilter. It's in the oven and looking good. I know lots of folks don't like fruit cake but it is a favourite in our home and so versatile. It's delightful on it's own or with a slice of cheddar and a glass of wine or warmed up and served with a butterscotch or nutmeg sauce.
I washed out the pot that I mixed the cake in, threw in a small ham bone, some water, etc. and hopefully there will be some fresh soup for lunch. I've added quinoa, dried green peas, and dried green lentils. Quinoa is grown and processed in our area, which makes it readily available, and that's wonderful. And with a load of laundry on I think I can stop being Suzie and spend the rest of the day sewing, stitching, or whatever.
The apron that my sister gave me is called a 'fat quarter apron' and she included the pattern. She used an autumn print in moss green and a rusty red ... I feel very posh when wearing it.
