Here we are nearly half way through November. Bonfire night has come and gone.
Did you celebrate?
We had a few sparklers in the garden with Tiny Girlie and warmed ourselves with soup and jacket potatoes.
Then cosied up in front of a log fire and ate chestnuts roasted in the embers.
Oh and cake.
There was more cake. Made from more apples.
A simple, rustic style cake, with apples, walnuts and raisins ...
fragrant with cinnamon and ginger.
Recipe from the Yeo Valley Great British Farmhouse Cookbook.
Winter is tightening her grip on the weather. Today has been so cold.
There is even talk of a white Christmas.
We shall see!
