|Cooler weather brings me back into to the kitchen.|
We're temporarily back up in the upper 80s but I know we will remain cool soon. So I can handle a little heat and humidity today. The higher humidity brought with it much needed rain.
I'm still re-reading Stillmeadow Calendar and perusing A Fine Romance off and on.
Although I have a hardback copy of Lark Rise to Candleford, I will be reading from this illustrated edition. It is gorgeous! I first learned about the book in the original Victoria magazine (sometime in the 1990s), where they were introducing this illustrated edition.
I think it is out of print but I purchased my copy used. Info... here. The series is only based on the book, this is an autobiography and not fiction... but still wonderful. Yes, I do enjoy the series very much!
The first of three brand new episodes of Foyle's War was shown last Sunday.
It was worth the wait. It is much like the feel of the old Foyle's War episodes but with more mysterious overtones.
|Hubby has learned not to ask when I'm setting up a photo. I put the kettle on top so you could see the basket's size.|
|The shape and insert makes this a pie carrier instead of a regular picnic basket.|
|The pie carrier on top of the picnic baskets... I love their vintage look.|
But when I looked inside it and saw the insert, I knew it was a pie carrier instead. But I still bought it thinking I'd use it as a small picnic basket. :)
Autumn tea time
This new tea was inexpensive at Target so I thought I'd give it a try. It is quite good with a taste somewhat like chai.
I have been enjoying the new tea with the latest Victoria and a favorite brown transferware mug in early afternoons. It has caffeine so it cannot be my nighttime drink. I tried. I was up past Midnight that night! Christopher and I were texting each other at 12:30 in the morning... yawn.
She takes her role as kitchen supervisor very seriously, can you tell?
