The Rains are Back

Once again I have woken to find a lake in my front yard!  It didn't stop raining all night!  But never mind, the trees and plants all look very happy!

Lots of water everywhere

Have been busy baking while the rain pours down.  It feels nice and cosy in the kitchen with the oven going to keep out the damp!  Made some yummy Pumpkin and Pecan cup cakes.  Invented the recipe and they turned out delicious!

I also experimented with some poached pear halves, adding some cranberries, sultanas, mixed peel and toasted walnuts, which I then wrapped and baked in Puff pastry.  They were so yummy with a dollop of yoghurt!

Will be trying to keep dry for the next week at least!  Hope the sun comes out soon  .......shine on.........
