Across the universe

As the great FF would say "the universe directed me to bake today.  I do what I'm told."
I made, from scratch, rolls.  This was a first for me.
I called my mum and got her recipe, then she and my dad ended up coming over because dad wanted his hair cut.
dad's hair

While I cut hair the dough finished rising and my mum, bless her heart, rolled the rolls.
didn't she do a lovely job?!

all done; behold the magnificence 

Next project was Shepherd's pie.  This is something else I had never made, but I needed something for supper and knew I had all the ingredients...okay I admit, I stole corn and some potatos from the neighbours...
I turned out quite well actually, if I do say so myself, and we shared with the neighbours.

Then, supper in belly, tv watched, I realized I had neglected actioning dessert and a sweets craving overtook me. So, I compelled hubby to make some chocolate chip cookies.  He did all the mixing and cleaning, and I did the forming and ovening.
Is there anything better than chocolate chip cookies, warm out of the oven, with a husband washing the bowl? No.

It was a tres domestic day, and it was lovely.  I already feel better knowing that we have left-overs to take in our lunches less meal to think about is a good thing.


  1. Sounds like you actioned a lovely supper!

  2. Looks like a domestic masterpiece. Those rolls look positively yummy! The cookies too.



Quips & Queries all appreciated!
