This has been what it looked liked out of my kitchen window for the most part since last Saturday. Am I allowed to complain about the rain even if I know that when summer comes all this water in our dams will be a good thing? I suppose I can, even if it won't change anything and to be quite honest, I really don't mind the rain IF I don't have to go anywhere!
In between the rain we have been trying to get washing dry making our backyard look like a Chinese Laundry, but at least we don't have to use the dryer (and only do in an emergency).
Down To Earth that Rhonda added meatballs to her soup instead of shin for e.g. and we gave it a go. It was quite delicious and we were pleased when a friend popped in and we had enough for him for lunch too!
Today while the oven was on for bread to go with soup, I made a quick batch of lemon poppy seed muffins for a mid morning snack...
2 cups Eureka stone ground cake flour
2t baking powder
2/3 cup organic sugar
1/2 cup softened butter
2 large eggs
Zest and zuice of 1 lemon
2 tablespoons of poppyseeds
1/2 cup (left over homemade) yoghurt...or buttermilk or milk!
Beat sugar and butter, add eggs one at a time. Add vanilla, zest and lemon juice and poppy seeds. Sift flour and baking powder into the bowl and then stir adding the milk/yoghurt as you go.
Spoon into greased muffin tin and bake for 25 minutes. Enjoy!
