This weekend I made hot chocolate each morning for myself and the girls. Saturday Edith made big tall towers of the old kitchen containers while I cleaned and filled the beautiful new Le Parfait jars to take pride of place in the pantry.
In the afternoon we went to fabulous Lakeland out by Brent Cross in the middle of shopping-by-the-motorway-land. I discovered that 3L Le Parfait jars are not advertised on their site and are £5.39 each as opposed to about £8 which was the cheapest I found online. We were on a mission for jam jars as this weekend was to be Sweet Orange Marmalade weekend. Oh yes. Back in the car with our new collection of small Le Parfait jars we headed home for ice cream.
Sunday was indeed Sweet Orange Marmalade making day, with much shredding, boiling and testing, the marmalade is quite heavenly and will be ready to photograph tomorrow. In the meantime I’m back and regularly updating my Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram.
Sale tip of the week: Burleigh have 25-50% off everything you could possibly want to buy (apart from the cheese plate I wanted).
