Yesterday my husband came inside with a bucket full of plums from our tree, I looked at them and thought what on earth am I going to do with all those. This morning I googled plum recipes and wow, there are so many things you can make. First off was 2 plum cakes, this recipe is an old German one and it was easy to make. It tastes delightful, the plums are a little bit tart combined with the sweetness of the cake. Yummo.
Then I made plum crumble, the boys have said it tastes good, it probably won't last long. Which is a good thing I guess. At least they like what I cook.
I then discovered on line that you can actually freeze plums so I cut them up in pieces and stored them in a container in the freezer, this is so good, now I'll have them whenever I need and they will last for up to 6 months.
I also did lots of sewing today, no wonder I feel a bit tired now. I'm almost there with my scrappy trip around the world, only 5 blocks to go. I reckon I'll get them done this week.
Tonight I'm going to sit in front of the tele with some easy stitching and a nice cup of tea, I think I deserve it, don't you.
