Lemon creme pie, horsey time and a little trip.
Anyone with a lemon tree at the moment will be wondering what the heck to do with all the lemons. I made this yesterday....a very easy and yummy way to get rid of a couple.... LEMON CREME PIE Thaw out one sheet short crust pastry, line a greased pie or quiche dish, trim away excess, blind bake in 180 degree oven 10 mins. Remove rice/beans used to blind bake and cook a further 10 mins. Cool. For the filling, whip a can of condensed milk with 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice then fold through 300ml of sour cream. Chill until set. Serve up a slice with some whipped cream and a sprinkle of icing sugar.......mmmmmmmm. Today Tim and I played with Hannah - our lovely quarterhorse mare. Tomorrow we have to say goodbye to this gentle girl when she goes to a new home. After a hoof trim (I like to call it a horsey manicure) we saddled her up for a final ride. Could be our last one for quite some time now we won't be horse-owners anymore.... This week we took a lovely little trip 4 1/2 hours south-west of here to Coolah. This teeny weeny village was hosting a rather large event - the regional cross country for the North West region of schools. The countryside along the way was just beautiful, as was the weather....ice on the ground early then glorious sunshine....the perfect day for a 2 km run! (Kate was doing the running, not me.... naturally.) And golly, we were so proud of her! Here she is approaching the finish line.... ....12th place out of a field of 60...woo hoo! Red in the face and almost in tears from exhaustion straight after (why wouldn't you be?)....then not 2 minutes later she's on her feet laughing and chasing around with her friends. Oh, to be young again!...hang on, I don't think I was EVER that fit!!! On the way home we took a detour through Tamworth so I could have a shop at Spotlight....of course I headed right for the scrapping department....and picked up some goodies for my next class. Working on the layout now, but you'll have to wait and see.... That's all the news for now. Keep warm and take care. xxx
