Don’t say I didn’t warn you!
I am very much in love with the op-shop’s glass pricing policy. The Bodum double-walled glasses are only little, and little glasses cost 50 cents. Big glasses cost a dollar, probably. So I now own three little Bodum double-walled glasses for the princely sum of $1.50.
At first, I thought “ooh, science equipment”, but now I think “tea!”
Also from the same shop, a fold out cake stand. Tell me, does it not remind you of a cyberman? Or is my Doctor Who obsession showing again?
Husband is very fond of fruit cake, not so fond of peel, so every six months or so I gather together the ridiculous volume of ingredients it takes to make the above recipe (Australian Women’s Weekly Cakes and Slices Cookbook, p.69) and spend a whole day in and out of the kitchen, boiling fruit, letting it cool and then baking then cooling again. Luckily the result is worth it. I replace all the peel and rind and ridiculous ingredients with sweetened dried pineapple and voila! fruitcake. No need to decorate or anything! Just my sort of cake.
