I happened to mention to a very good friend of mine, that one of things I really want to achieve is to make a trifle from scratch!
This all came about because I happened to say I was going to buy one for Christmas, to which she was horrified and said I could make one! Shock and horror was all over my face at first, but I soon came round to the idea!
After receiving some wonderful instructions from her, I planned to full fill my challenge today!
With Luke at Nursery, I stopped by Tesco on the way home and stocked up on supplies!
My morning turned out to be really productive, here is what I made :-
Base is sponge fingers, tinned fruit – drained, raspberry jelly, ambrosia custard and double cream, all topped off with crushed flake!
Tasting will take place after dinner tonight!
Another thing I have wanted to try is to make cupcakes and today I made some! Ok, so they are from the Betty Crocker range, but let me tell you even a box can go wrong! I will next time try them from scratch as I am more confident now to give it go! Here is my end result :-
My Tuesday has been another rather productive day! Wrapped the last of the presents, wrote out all the family Christmas cards, washed all the sheets, pillowcases and duvet covers for 4 beds, tidied my kitchen, ran the dishwasher twice and then pottered around in the afternoon!
Wonder what Wednesday will hold?
One thing on top of the list is floor washing! Yes I need to wash my kitchen floor tomorrow but I am actually wondering if worth it, with all the visitors that are about to descend on my house!
Shall see how I feel in the morning! LOL!
