Cheese and Apple Scones

I was Memed by Amanda of Little Foodies, Margaret of Kitchen Delights, Deborah of Taste and Tell and Nora B of Life's Smörgåsbord a few weeks ago. My apologies to all of you for my tardy reply, but better late than never! Here goes.

My most recent cook book buys were Seductions of Rice by Jeffrey Alford and Naomi Duguid, Nobody Does It Better by Trish Deseine (French food one) and The Olives Dessert Table By Todd English, Sally Sampson and Paige Retus.

I can’t tell you how much I’m looking forward to Nigella Lawson’s new book out in less than a month. I’m almost counting down the days!

I have been on podge patrol and managed to lose 6lbs. I’d like to lose a good bit more, but it’s a start.

I am currently reading the 7th Harry Potter, having read the 6th one a couple of weeks ago – because I realised that although I pre-ordered no 6 I didn’t actually get round to reading it back then!

I often want to eat chocolate for breakfast, I have only done it twice, but I’d like to be able to do it more (and not gain weight / stay healthy).

I love to make jam, I don’t suppose it’s that fashionable now to say this, but I do enjoy make it.

Despite my best efforts not to this year I’ve become hooked on Big Brother again…
A mouthful of a Great Grains Muffin

Due to me having left it so long to get round to doing this everyone I can think of seems to have been memed already – but if you are on my ‘Places I like to Visit’ list and would like to do one – consider yourself memed!

The two food pictures to keep you going are two breakfasts I made from Dorie Greenspan’s Baking from My Home to Yours. Both delicious – real treats in the morning. I had a batch pic of the great grains one, but I can’t find it now, but a bite of a great muffin is better than no muffin atall!

Yeah, I would be a happy girl if I could eat chocolate for breakfast and not gain weight!!! Thanks for sharing!

I still love the phrase 'podge patrol'. If only I could find that elusive motivation to go on a little podge patrol myself! I shall await your reviews on the new Nigella book.

p.s. I've given you an award, infact two awards! Very well deserved they are too.

I love the jam thing because this p.m. I am also about to embark on making jam. Can't run with the Big Brother thing though......! Mx

Hi Kelly-Jane, thanks for sharing a bit about yourself. I don't think that it's old-fashioned to make jam. I'm making marmalade this weekend. I know you are on podge patrol (love that phrase!), but if you want to incorporate choc in your breakfast, maybe a slice of bread with nutella spread might be the trick? I think choc in small quantities is good for you. We all need a treat, even when on podge patrol. :-)

I can't believe I don't have this book yet. Thanks for sharing.

K-J, I am always wondering how you can maintain your weight, let alone lose weight, with all of those delicious treats you make.
