Goings On In The Kitchen

Here are the chocolates I mentioned earlier in the week. Don't they look good enough to eat? We have a workshop at Art and Stitch next month to learn how to make them.

On Thursday evening Steph and I made some Lemon & Lime Curd. Today I made tarts and no I didn't make the pastry. That came from Tesco or Sainsbury's- one of them. They don't look too bad do they? But now to some more unusual goings-on in the kitchen.

I needed some algae for my texture board. I've got some green felt which would be perfect for representing algae. At the last meeting of my C&G course I was discussing how I was going to recreate the effect of algae with my tutor and I said I was going to use a cheese grater. But some how during the conversation we started talking about kitchen appliances.

Well! what else do you use a food processor for?

And that is how you end up with a soft pile of fuzz.

I can't believe you actually used your food processor for that! Guess what... I'm free for the chocolates workshop... I'll be in touch. The lemon curd tarts look delicious!

Your lemon curd tarts look gorgeous!!

I just love what you made with your food processor - I'm amazed it did such a good job!

Oh no, not more cooking. It must be catching, because I made some lemon curd this afternoon from the recipe you used - it's delish! NOW I'll have to try making tarts too.

Lemon curd tarts are my favourite kind of jammy tart. Delish x
