Normal blogging may now resume....

Now Halloween is done and dusted I promise no more gory food for at least 11 months! That said, I did open some home made apple sauce to go with our porridge and it was moldy, so I opened a second jar, moldy, as was the third. This was the first time I have tried making it, followed all the instructions properly so I have no idea what went wrong. I am so glad I only mad a small batch of three jars though, it has made me a bit paranoid about the jams I have made...hmmmm.

Ebi-kun asked to watch a film yesterday when he got in for yochien because he was tired, so he picked The Wizard Of Oz, one of my all time favourites. A friend popped round for a coffee so we didn't get round to doing much else. I did tell Ebi-kun that he had to take a bath in the dark because it was Halloween, he wasn't too keen until he saw that I had put the ping-pong eye balls and glo-sticks in the bath and then I couldn't get him out!

I am still re-formatting the patterns, taking me much longer than anticipated, I have a new pattern almost ready to go and I have been putting together a workbook to go with a Picasso book I got for Ebi-kun, we are going to the Open Air Museum in Hakone later in the month and they have a big Picasso area, I thought it would be fun to do on the way there.

Tomorrow is daddy-ebi's birthday so I need to get really need to get organised.... busy week, this week!

  1. Bummer on the applesauce. I'm guessing your seals may not have taken for some reason. We've made it many times and had no problems, but I have had it mold after opening (even recently a store bought jar molded before the expiration date - even though I had it stored in the fridge with the lid on tight).
