Rum and Raisin Banana cakes.  Mandarin marmalade.  Iíve been making all sorts of odd mixtures of jam and Quince paste. At Probus they give them out for Birthdays and as prizes. People donate small jars and excess fruit and I add something . I recently made mixed berry and rhubarb jam, and added Muscat to the Quince Paste. At meetings they openly discuss what they have tasted and are delighted with the unusual mixtures. Iím surprised.

Katie, have just finished Ď A Spanner in the Worksí by Alice Anderson.  Highly recommended. Now reading ĎEducatedí by Tara Westover. Have read 1/3, not liking it at all.
Men coming to finish Garden Room. Cleaner also coming.

This Bread and butter pud was lovely.  Iíll be buying an extra Panatone next Xmas to make this again. The recipe prepositions werenít correct. Easily remedied. Also very easy. I used a tin of cherries.
Making chocolate cakes for pud tonight.

Found a large piece of Panatone leftover from Xmas. Made a bread and butter pudding with it from a recipe that had grapes added. Also coffee liqueur.

Soup, veggie and chicken. It has a funny texture. As the TMX was busy making Quince Paste, I cooked the veggies in a saucepan and used the Bamix to mix it. Make one really appreciate the TMX.

Iíve been making some strange jam mixes. The feed back has been amazing. Today Iíll try a different one. Quince and Red grapes. The Lemon, Carrot and Cardamon is quite nice , although my favourite at the moment is plain Mandarin Marmalade.

Cookie, glad you are enjoying your little holiday.
Last night GS helped me understand my heating system. The house is zoned. I can now control the system easily.
