Family

Visiting my new grand-son (no name at this time) for the first time today. I had a heavy cold when he was born so didn’t visit. Now I am over my cold I am going to meet him. Stopped along the way to get mail and saw the steam train leaving the station.

Today started early at 5:30am with a skype chat with Ana and Paulo in Portugal. Today is a Wednesday and the weather was mild. I did my volunteer job at the Goolwa Museum in the afternoon and am continuing to knit baby clothes for my 4th grand-child due in 3 months time. Take 12 photos on the 12th of the month showing your day.

I am doing an online class and it has a royal food theme.

Week 4 was still in the Georgian period with George III. The recipe I cooked this week was Barley Soup

Stock

I started with an already prepared good quality beef stock from the supermarket

Add the barley

I added the barley to the stock and bought to the boil.

Simmered for 40 minutes until the barley was soft and the stock had reduced by half. This was too thick so I added more water and bought it back to the boil. Added the raisins and onion and while the recipe didn’t mention cooking the onion I let it all boil for a few minutes as I didn’t want raw onion in my soup.

The finished soup with cream and parsley added.

It tasted okay, a little bland and was very full of barley. If I make this again I would also add some vegetables and meat. It would make a good stew.

Week 5’s recipe I am not going to make. It is a Victoria sponge and having made sponges previously all that was really different was in the execution and that it was mixed using your hand. If I had made the sponge I would have had to eat it all myself.
