Domestic Bliss

Lemon Curd

It’s cold, it’s grey and for reasons I can’t explain I found myself cleaning out my pantry over the weekend. Procrastinating? Nesting? Who knows, but it was totally stripped, cleaned, old jars cleaned and repurposed, manky tupperware sterilised to an inch if it’s life in the dishwasher, mysterious half consumed packets chucked.

And in the process I found myself dragging out the bread maker to see if it still works. It’s enormous and takes up so much space in the cupboard, if it didn’t perform it’s days were numbered. So I made a loaf of bread, as you do. I had been uber-domestic the previous day making lemon curd so it was the best timing. We have so many lemons from our neighbours and friends …. sadly not from our own poor struggling sad old tree. What a dud!
The result? The bread maker lives another day! I suspect it knew there was a performance review going on and showed off like an old pro by making a loaf so enormous it nearly burst open the door before it was done.
Oven fresh bread with lots of butter and dollops of fresh lemon curd and I’m the happiest girl in the world.

Frankie and Ray - What a lovely looking loaf…and lemon curd! Heaven! Perhaps it’s the looming Winter, I had a big clear out of the assorted t-shirt and trackie dack drawer this morning…not nearly as photogenic!
