A Sunday well spent…

brings a week of content. At least that’s what pinterest tells me 😉

Taking time out to have a cuppa under the trees and read the Sunday paper led to a lovely day.

After feeling unwell for quite some time and ending up with this guy in my elbow for an MRI. I have been forced to go slow.

Interesting how we take our health for granted when it isn’t an issue isn’t it. I don’t think I eat poorly or take bad care of myself but being ill has made me take more note of what i put in my mouth and also made me get off my arse more to benefit my overall health. Frustratingly after multiple tests and specialists appointments I have no answer as to why I have been off my game. That in itself has been a mental challenge. I will end up having some hospital time to have a peek at how my coeliacs disease is travelling but apart from that nothing is showing up. boo.

I am feeling on the up and up which has resulted in some time in the kitchen enjoying baking and utilising the new space we have created that has taken quite a bit of work! In the meantime I am being kind to myself and poring over cookbooks for inspiration. This weekend it was melting moments. I made them with gluten free flour so kept them mini as they can be crumbly. You should make some, they are easy and a nice nostalgic treat. This recipe is from my fave Donna Hay.

Classic melting moments
  • 175g unsalted butter, softened
  • ¼ cup (40g) icing (confectioner’s) sugar, sifted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup (150g) plain (all-purpose) flour, sifted
  • ¼ cup (35g) cornflour (cornstarch), sifted

lemon filling

  • 60g unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup (160g) icing (confectioner’s) sugar, sifted
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons finely grated lemon rind

  1. I know what you mean Erin. I found a lump in my breast about a month ago and just about gave myself a heart attack. Turned out to just be cyst that then got badly infected and ruptured (all kinds of fun) but gosh it makes you slow down and re-evaluated. Hope they figure out what it is. I’ll keep you in my prayers.
