I keep talking about the ice cream I've been making since I got my ice cream maker. So, this is the amazingly yummy (but extremely indulgent) strawberry clotted cream ice cream I made yesterday, served with gingerbread biscuits - you can't quite see but the spoon is also heart shaped!
And here is some raspberry frozen greek yoghurt that I mentioned a while ago (but made again tonight) churning round in the ice cream machine. This goes well with lemon madeira cake. It might also go well with almond or coconut macaroons.
I looked for a book about ice cream in the library at lunchtime, but they were all out, however, I came away with Rachel Allen's Bake which I'm looking forward to reading and finding something to make from. I think I've identified what I will make from Cherry Cake and Ginger Beer, but that will probably be next weekend, as although I intend to bake something tomorrow night, it needs to involve strawberries!
Ooh, and the Ka saga is over - she's home! (I can now reunite myself with my welly boots and my Hits of 1996 CD). I also arrived home to four of my new Persephone books, somewhat appropriately since it is their birthday today. I was too eager to see what had arrived, as I would have taken a picture of the envelope to tantalise you, but you'll have to wait until the rest arrive for some Persephone visual delights. I'll leave you with a picture of my car before heading off to take the raspberry frozen yoghurt out of the machine and sit down with Authenticity.
I love books, baking and my boyfriend, and love to write about the first two. I particular love "forgotten" books, books brought out of obscurity by republication and those still languishing in obscurity. I'm currently reading my way through all of the Virago Modern Classics, but taking in other books along the way.
