One of dh's favourite desserts is fresh fruit salad. I posted the recipe here back in 2010. I had an apple and a pear that needed using up, so thought I would make one.
I also had a can of mandarin oranges, a can of pineapple tidbits, a couple of bananas and I found a bag of frozen peach slices in the freezer. I did not make the syrup from the original recipe, I just used the juice from the two cans, and I chopped everything up and popped it in the fridge so it was nice and cold for supper. You can use all sorts of fruits, that was what I had on hand.
I picked up a cross stitch magazine in England when we were over. I love doing cross stitch and have been doing it since the early 80's. However I have discovered a couple of things. They are making the holes a lot smaller on the Aida cloth (!!) and doing cross stitch aggravates the arthritis in my thumb joints. This is an easy project I am doing. Says it only take 9 hours to finish, so hopefully next week I will be able to show you photos.
I bought a pot of bulbs last Saturday; they were all on bud. Less than a week later, they are all in flower, despite me sitting them on the table by the front door, where I figured it would be a little cooler.
The good thing about this, is that although they won't last too long, they give the house a feel of Spring and I will be able to plants the bulbs in the Fall.
We are going back to the garden centre today as they have a home show on, so I may pick up another pot of bulbs.
As I said in the title, a bit of this and a bit of that! What are your plans for Saturday.
