Another year wiser?

Well I hope so! Yep it's my birthday, another year on the clock!

As I was working last night I didn't do anything particular, slept a bit then when the rain stopped G and I had a walk around the section planning improvements and checking on the trees and plants.

Since I am the cook here at CTF, it is MY kitchen, I made my own birthday cake! This one is a Hummingbird cake using this recipe which contains pineapple, banana and passionfruit. G pronounced it the best cake I had ever made so that's good!

My lovely sister sent me this fabulous cook book, which won Dutch Cookbook of the Year:

Will be trying out the cheese recipes ASAP!

Looking forward to mastering gnocchi making..

The book has a huge variety of recipes, I'm going to love trying out as many recipes as I can. Maybe I should do a Julie and Julia?! Thanks so much S xx

And these lovely leather gardening gloves from my dear Mother xx:

Not sure how long they will look this new and pretty!!
