At the weekend I was mostly channelling my inner old lady. Firstly a trip to Dunelm Mill got me overly excited about two new snugglicious blankets for our living room (we love curling up under blankets in front of the TV or with a book, even during summer months!) as well as a set of cheerfully-coloured digital kitchen scales for the bargain price of £8 (shown below with my apple crumble prep).
I then set to work on a pretty new jigsaw. What can I say? I just love a good jigsaw now and again. Probably because it is akin to sorting and tidying, which ultimately gives me a lot of satisfaction.
And finally I finished the weekend off by baking an apple crumble, something I’ve not done since I was a little girl! I followed this recipe off the BBC Food website, and was very impressed – best crumble I’ve had in a long time and very simple to make. Not much can go wrong really, which is always a good thing. Something I’d tweak for next time – my dish was quite small in terms of its diameter, so the crumble went a long way – in fact I couldn’t fit it all on! I could probably get away with making 2/3 of the amount, which might also create space to add in some oats for extra crunch. Given the amount of butter in the recipe I think this would be a good idea for health reasons too!
