So Bramble & Pumpkin are fast growing into full sized cats now, I thought I’d share some recent photos of them with you. Everyone likes cat photos, right?
We left out grill pan out to wash after cooking bacon on Sunday morning. Came back to it at lunch time to wash it, only to find some cheeky little bastard had discovered a taste for bacon grease… nice!
Like last Christmas, we spent a good deal of time in our brand new kitchen in the winter of ’09 creating tastey treats for our families for part of their Christmas gifts. This year we upped the ante a little and added some new things, jazzed up old things and got bigger and better than before!
This year our gift boxes included
Luxury Christmas Puddings (with walnuts, cranberries and stuffed full of booze and fruit)
Spiced apple chutney
Piccalilli (I hate, hate, hate shop bought piccalilli but the recipe we use is sooo good!)
Green Tomato Chutney (using the last of our home grown tomatoes)
Sweet Chili Jam
Dark chocolate dipped cinder toffee
Pear wine (made with pears from my parent’s garden)
Plum mead (made with plums from my parent’s garden)
Here was the labelling assembly line on Christmas eve, I designed the labels in the morning and we set to packaging everything up in the afternoon…
Hopefully I’ll have chance to write up some of the recipes before summer this time ;)
Hey there! I’m Kim. I help creative businesses and brands discover their online potential. I offer creative services, guides & other resources to help you elevate your position online! Keep up with my blog posts for insights into running two small creative businesses. (If you want to follow my personal blog, that’s over here now!)
“Kim was a real pleasure to work with, all the costs were really clear from the start, my website was finished quickly and I was kept up to date at every stage. She also always had time to answer my stupid questions and explain things in a way which was easy for someone who isn’t massively technical to understand! I’d used WordPress templates before but the way Kim built mine makes it so easy to update.”
