N is for......What's New in the nesbitt household!.

No, it is not the latest creature in Dr Who! This was some spare pastry I cooked for the hens - except I forgot it was in the oven and by the time I remembered it was burnt! Yes, as with the Aga, the Rayburn's flu goes straight into the chimney so all smells and fumes are not detectable...some things never change!

last week several aired disappointment and no kitchen updates. The only thing to report is our drawer organisers arrived, so Jon fit them on Sunday when we returned from Grosmont railway events.

I have tried out a couple of NEW recipes - a strawberry victoria sandwich and a freezer roll. The strawberry recipe is a pretty standard one and the freezer roll is basically mine. I sorted out the freezer and came across some frozen burgers, meatballs and a haggis. I have cooked all 3 and made 3 different types of "rolls". We wont be having and BBQ's until next year so I have used the basic meat mixtures for winter warming snacks. All the meat from the burgers etc is all from our local butchers so I was determined to put it to good use.

I have coffee with my neighbours regularly, this afternoon I will take over the above little sample to Rowena, and have a coffee.

N is for nesting box - this photo I took only a few minutes ago, of Margie settling down to lay an egg. The girls continue to supply us with fantastic eggs.

So a small update on what's going on here. The weather has definitely turned colder and over the next few days it will be all hands on deck to get the garden ready for winter......brrrrrr!
