So, I've bought myself this beautiful larder fridge, A rated;
So roomy, I feel all inspired. Tonight I will be soaking some chickpeas and other bits and bats and making up some dips to keep in there :-) I even have room to prepare bread at night, and then leave it to prove overnight in the fridge (final proving obviously), before baking off in the morning - yum yum.
It does feel rather imposing in the kitchen; but oh, I love it. And ok, if I weren't childminding I prehaps wouldn't have required such a large fridge But I am, and this beauty will make life a bit easier, and you know I am a pagan and a greeny in the 21st Century - I don't have an underground cellar to store food in; and while I don't buy into all the consumer items we're told we MUST have, I personally consider a fridge pretty high up in the importance stakes. Rather have a fridge than a freezer for example. Nor do I reject all the technological advances that have been made.. wouldn't be without my laptop - well, not if I have a choice anyway.
Oh gosh, and just look at this photo; the kids were having their 10 o clock snack and C's woolly hat was on the table;
And last night Rye announced he wanted to bake muffins - well, who am I to argue;
Very nice too; if somewhat lopsided lol.
