the original recipe.
Seriously addictive and almost completely healthy - but icing has to be allowed on birthday cakes!
And yes, of course I am showing off my new plates at the same time :)
I bought 4 bowls, 4 dinner plates and 4 side plates. FL and I have never had a matching set before, so Christmas 2014 (and our 7th wedding anniversary - oooh!) seemed as good a time as any to invest.
They are from The Painted Bird.
FL and I are not the sort for fancy presents - he got 2 pairs of handknitted socks, and I got a box of chocolates plus an enthusiastic reception to our new crockery!
Today I packed away the Christmas decorations, cleared out the recyclables, went to the library, took a bag of "stuff" to the charity shop and played in my yarn stash.
We were going to plant the Christmas tree, but the spade has gone missing. Grrrr.
I will leave you with some pictures of a deeply satisfying spin-to-knit project which I completed in the past couple of days.

This was enormously fulfilling.
