Friday already

I was going to post here on Tuesday evening, but got distracted by a combination of website issues, and visitors popping in for coffee. Since then I've had a busy day at Little Fishes and a housegroup meeting (Wednesday), a haircut, a trip round to Kathryn's place, and a mad panic trying to get ready for some friends to come round and play Risk last night (Thursday). In addition to that, the front door has fallen off its hinges (well one of its hinges) so we are having to use the back door till I get it repaired/replaced!!!! So now it's Friday and I still haven't posted...

What I was going to post on Tuesday was about the tea I cooked..
A little while ago I agreed to cook some empanadas for a Fiesta Latins which some people at church are organising... but I said I wanted the recipe in time to have a practice run. In the end that meant i was given the recipe and told to check that it worked before it was distributed to anyone else!! so on Tuesday night I did, and this was the result:



They were really tasty and made a good tea for everyone! I was pleased because I haven't made pastry in a long time... but it turned out really well, obviously like riding a bike it's one of those skills you don't ever forget!!

Oh yum, they look delicious even though I'm still full from dinner. You are very clever.

And it does look like you're busy as usual. I hope you get the door fixed. That's where Steve is handy, if something like that is broken, he'd have to fix it the minute he got home from work! Drives us crazy sometimes but it gets the jobs done around the place. Shall I send him over? *g*

The door problem is more than just a broken hinge, The door frame is pretty damaged and I think the whole thing needs to be replaced, but if you think Steve's up to the job send him right across, help would be most welcome!!!

Well, he just finished the rabbit run *g* but I might need him to do a few more jobs around here! If we could both come over...

Yay empanadas! They look wonderful! Do you use olives and raisins in your filling?

Baking for me - Yes
Baking for Church - No, accommodating some very conservative eaters!!!

They remind me of Cornish pasties.

I bet they all disappeared in minutes as they look so delicious.
