The wind still blew this week - it moved to the north and brought a dusting of arctic chill with it too, but we managed out most days. Its always a thought to drag ourselves away from the warmth, get togged up, and face the cold, but always so worth the effort. There isn't really a lot on the camera roll this week, just a few shots taken on our walks, so I thought I would share a few internet links that have caught my attention this week:
I am taking part in a wonderful online retreat run facilitated by Heather from Beauty that Moves. I cant believe we are at the end of the first week already. I am so enjoying the activities and sharing from a fabulous group of like minded women. It has been a very nourishing time - and much love to my dear friend Denise for bringing me along..
I enjoyed listening to this - fascinating.
And I read this at just the right time.
One more photo on the camera phone tonight - caramelised pear skillet pie - so easy.
Line a cast iron skillet, or a pie dish with a puff pastry sheet
into a frying pan put
4 oz caster sugar
4 fl oz water
1 tsp vanilla
bring to the boil and simmer for a few minutes until caramel coloured.
1 oz butter
4 pears, peeled, cored and cut into eighths
stir till butter has melted and pears are nicely coated in caramel
cook for a further 5 minutes
1/2 tsp each of ground cinnamon and ginger
pour pears and caramel into pastry shell and cook at 200 deg C for 20 mins, until the pastry is nicely puffed up and browned.
We had ours with creme fraiche.
Wishing you all good things in the week ahead xx
