Feeling better :)

I woke this morning with a slight headache but thankfully no dizziness, louie told me not to rush about and save my energy. I really wanted to home bake as there was not a bit of cake in the house.
After breakfast I put the radio on low and decided my oven needed a clean, I try to keep on top of this, to be honest its not a job I detest, I get a lot of satisfaction from keeping my oven clean as I use it so much.
One dirty oven...
While I start cleaning I leave the racks to soak in the sink in hot water and a couple of scoops of "oxygen" the powder you put in with your laundry detergent.
I use this cleaner, its brilliant...
Ta-Dah...
I decided to bake an apple cake,
I was pleased, nice and moist...
I needed to make something for tea, I used a Mary Berry recipe to guide me but I had to improvise with ingredients as I had not done my weekly food shop this week.
Cream cheese tarts with caramelised red onions and walnut pastry...
After a chill in the fridge, time to line the bottom with the onion mixture...
Now for the cream mixture on top...
Pop them in a hot oven for 20 minutes...
My messy kitchen...
Once I cleaned up I just wanted to spend some time in the garden, a little weeding on the raised beds, I sowed some more spring onions, beetroot and radishes.
Our pea's are coming on and I actually picked radishes to have with our salad tonight.
