Cookie, that look pretty good to me.
Me too.

Love those reject scrolls Chookie.
Judy you are so organised.
I've been having a cook up while the weather is cool. Today I've made stock concentrate, vegetable soup, black bread, oatmeal crunchies, jam muffins and a slow cooker beef casserole for dinner. Feeling pretty pleased with myself  :)
Wow Gayle you’ve been busy.

Morning all.
CC, would they be Hawthorne hedges. ?   Love them. There were lots at Cherokee. We would tell the GC that the red berries were the birds lollies.
The hedging is mixed deciduous shrubs dotted with the hawthorn Chookie.

There was a hard frost overnight.They are forecasting snow this coming week.Not sure if it's coming our way but we usually do here on the Chilterns.  :-))

Had a fun day today.  DD came for breakfast.  We then went and watched GD playing the Bagpipes.  We then went to the Invermay community get together.  It was a fund raiser for the local fire brigade. On the leaflet that was put in letter box, it said they would be having an auction.   I popped 4 jars of jam in my basket. I thought they might add them to something else.  Most of the lots auctioned were wines. At the end, to my embarrassment , they auctioned each jar separately. They raised $58. There were over 300 people at the gathering.

On Friday I found a recipe for food processor Danish Pastries.
They sat in the fridge for 1-2 days. Today I  prepared half of the mix. I followed the instructions exactly, even though I felt the dough was rolled too thickly. When I cooked them the fold undid itself and it flattened out. They look quite weird but DH and DD haven't tasted them yet. I spread them with a little frangipane I had made.

Tomorrow I hope to make some crossaints with the rest of the dough, but I will be rolling it out much more thinly.

Gayle and K Atie you both sound very busy.

We went out last night as the car club were having an evening of Hubley Racing. Hubleys are mini Model A cars. Quite heavy and some people get very involved. We have one but the lovely man who gave t to DH asked him not to race it. They all have to be weighed and it is timed down to 3 decimal places.
We had a lovely evening chatting and having a BBQ with friends.



As you can see ours doesn't have a bonnet.
