Since my stroke I’ve struggled to follow instruction manuals / processes etc so today I thought i’d try some baking following a recipe to see how I got on. I need to improve my instruction following skills before I return to work so thought this might help. Here are some pics of my efforts…i’ve not tasted any yet but i’m still pleased with the outcome.
I’m off to lie in a darkened room now. I’m shattered
can I come around for me tea tonite, please? A dish of whatever that is in the pan and a nicely risen buttered scone with jam to follow. Some of those greens I spy at the edge of the picky, too. Yes, I could manage that.
I wouldn’t stay in that darkened room too long or it could all be gone when you get back!
keep on cookin’ on!
@Mrs5K looks like your preparing for a function or hibernate.
Looks amazing you’ve made me hungry I could just go for a scone with naughty butter and jam or better still cream.
Enjoy every morsel and let us know what it’s like. Well done Ann. keep going you might make Bake off with @Bobbi
All looks delicious
I haven’t got up from the sofa yet!
@DDMH thank you. I am now on sofa as all the effort wore me out.
Hope you’re ok. Sofa is my new best friend xx
Hilary, my wife and carer, just made porage.
I’ve decided, porage is my best friend.
I think scones and cream would come close second, though.
Is it legal to have two best friends?
Well done. Nothing succeeds like success.
Wow what a busy you’ve been! Looks like you’re feeding the 5000 .
A scone would go very nicely with my lonely cup of tea.
Rest fully deserved.
Thank you @John_Jeff_Maynard and @Ingo66 i’m getting prepared for winter hibernation i think
@Bobbi i think we’d let you have 2 best friends just this once
Nay, porridge is it. I love my porridge. Take my porridge away from me and I am a scorned man. It’s illegal to love anything else but porridge if you like eating porridge.
You are delirious from the brandy @Rups and yes we love porridge too with honey
Evening Ann @Mrs5K. These look amazing. I think I can smell them through the internet. It’s a great feeling when you put your mind to it, get it to do what you need it to and actually create something functional and in this case delicious. I tried making ravioli from scratch tonight, which is the first time since before the accident but something I did regularly before. It was tricky as I couldn’t remember alot of the details so had to do some proper planning and it does require a good level of dexterity which was frustrating at times but I served up 2 decent bowls of mushroom, ricotta and pine nut ravioli. Now I know I can do it I just need to keep practicing and experimenting. Hope after a rest on the sofa and a scone you will be recharged enough to plan your next cooking adventure, Julia x
Aye, I was thinking the same thing as I wrote it, but it’s almost a fact for me. Perhaps it is the brandy talking but if it promotes porridge, it is no bad thing
Looks absolutely delicious Ann, happy eating
Thank you @Mahoney the scones are yum. The chilli will be consumed tomorrow …well some of it. Think i’d be very fat if i ate it all
