Week of Love – Wednesday

Framed hearts by Crayon Chick

Today’s loving:

  • a blessedly refreshing change in wind direction, bring it on you cooler southerlies, blow that nasty humidity back to Queensland where it came from!
  • the anticipation of starting disc 1 of a brand new talking book by MC Beaton about one of my all time favourite private eyes, Agatha Raisin, and narrated by my all time favourite and fabulous Penelope Keith – hoorah, I looooove Penelope Keith!
  • the serendipity of hearing from my beautiful interstate friend during my week of love as her name is Love!!! (Love you, Yolly xx)
  • So You Think You Can Dance is on tonight. Don’t need to say anything more about that.
  • the memory of yesterday’s fig tart for afternoon tea and sort of wishing I’d saved some (sigh)
peel and slice figs and try not to eat all of them at once
place in a pan with a knob or two of butter and brown sugar
slowly bubble away to a thick dark glossy sweet syrupy figgy bit of deliciousness
blind bake a sheet of puff pastry cut into 4 squares
pile the figgy syrupy mixture onto the golden puffed pastry squares
add a very generous, it has to be generous, blob of cream
recognise this is too irresistible to save some for later and inhale the lot
lick all plates, pans and dishes

Penelope Keith as Margot Leadbetter in The Good Life – and that’s a big love right there!

Crayon Chick - Hello Kelly, I’m really pleased to hear from you, it was lovely to share your delight on Sunday when you found your new hearts! I’m taking my next creative cue from the seasons and doing some autumn inspired samplers. Watch this space!

Kelly - I’m guessing that maybe you had more than one of the gorgeous crocheted hearts frames, but I bought one from you on Sunday afternoon at Bowerbird and we just love it! Glad you had a worthwhile trip!
