well… about to take the girls to the station… it’s Sunday morning and we survived… just.
The girls arrived at 9pm on Friday night and after a whistle stop tour of Skegness it was back to the cottage, out with the asti (don’t go there) then the wine… until 3am! I even managed to make a quiche during the drunken tomfoolery… Haven’t been to bed at 3am for a good few years but still managed to get up and bake bread on Saturday morning… yes, dear reader, it’s all about the glory with me… I may be exhausted and ready for bed again (its 1pm) but at least I baked a loaf!
The Quiche is veggie sausage, onion, mushroom and courgette… a weird combo but somehow it worked, in fact it was a bit like a breakfast quiche… well I was drunk when I made it.
We spent the day yesterday walking on the beach, driving through the wolds and avoiding sudden downpours with games of trivial pursuit…. Jane the mad bee lady would scream everytime anything with even a small buzz flew past her head, which caused much hilarity, whilst me and Gina ‘Mash and Beans’ Jones beat them to take the glory of Belleau Trivial Champions 2010
oh and we also had to fit in some mini-scones to take over to a party last night which I had promised to a friend and decided to make these bizarre lemonade scones I had seen here.
Where do I start with the scone? Look at them… small… fluffy… light and DISGUSTING! This proves my theory that you should never trust an American with a scone recipe… we were suspicious with the lack of sugar and the lack of fat but The Big V stressed that I should stick to the recipe and I suppose he’s right… well if this is how they’re supposed to taste, you can forget it… wrong, wrong, wrong.
eat and of course, enjoy!

The bread and quiche look really good. Shame about the scones, but I think we all have a few cooking disasters here and there.
Glad you had a fun time – must have been fun to stay up til 3 – I think I'm being really racy if I manage midnight. Weird recipe for scones but the sugar and fat are there in the lemonade and cream?
Sorry your scones didn't turn out- but like you say, don't trust an American with a scone recipe lol!
Quiche looks lovely as does the bread- well done you!
Oh my. I've been looking for a perfect quiche recipe for ages, plus I can't be arsed to buy any baking beans! But this, this may persuade me otherwise. Looks lovely. And your bread looks nothing short of heavenly!
p.s. me and my boy LOVE asti too. The shame!
