Just another manic Tuesday

I have whiled the day away with nothing concrete to show for it.  Up late, slept through the foggy morning and woke with a headache. Scrambled eggs on toast for brunch and then off to see the GardyGardeners with a lovely David Austin rose as a gift, but they were out. I had a little shop at the  supermarket and then realised I had 20 minutes to get to the Hospital for my blood tests!! Made it with minutes to spare and then I remembered I had until Thursday to buy new glasses or I missed out on my lot for the year from the health fund. Barry at Eyelines has a gift from the gods and the first pair he chose were excellent – purple. I know, you expect me to have green, but the purple just look better. Then off to see if the newsagency can order #1 of Simply Knitting, as I somehow missed it. I have #2 though. Now I am typing and eating THE most delicious yoghurt in the world : Tamar Valley Greek Style Yoghurt with Mixed Berry, a whole thick layer of fruit. The Labradors think it is great too. I am all manic. I must have another cup of green tea and a nap. I bought a new green hot water bottle too!! And 6 Labrador cards and wrapping paper with baby Labradors too. So cute.

Tomorrow I must rest all day as I am going to afternoon tea for an hour or so with Jessie before she leaves again for Darwin. Knitting? What knitting????

Now I need a calming recipe – this one is calming to make and to eat – no harsh tastes at all:

Chicken Asparagus Rolls

  • 2 sheets of frozen puff pastry

  • 100 g cooked and chopped chicken

  • ΒΌ cup asparagus, fresh or tinned

  • 1 tbspn sour cream

  • 1 tbspn chopped chives or parsley

  • 30 g grated cheese

  • 1 lightly beaten egg for glazing

Preheat oven to 200 C ( 190 ff)  and lightly grease and line trays. Gently combine all the filling ingredients.  Cut each pastry sheet into 4 strips and then divide by 3 the other way. Roll out till they measure about 8 x 10 cm. ( 24 pieces)  Softly spoon a teaspoon of filling into centre of each pastry piece, fold in long sides, then ends. Place reverently seam side down on the tray and brush with the egg. Cook for about 15 minutes.  Make a cup of tea while they are cooking and rest your eyes. Nice hot, warm, or cold the next day!!
