The very little play went very well on Sat.
Here is a rehearsal shot
Um. The narrators stood in front of us during the performance.
So I don't have any shots of the play. Such is life.
New Recipe a Week:
Pictured is Ina Garten's Orange Pound Cake
Tastes terrible warm.
Did you know that about pound cake. It is horrid warm.
As you can see, I tasted it before I took a picture.
I am, so, NOT a perfectionist.
And both loaves have big sink holes.
Did you know that when you bake with glass pans, your food cooks faster?
Well it does.
So I carefully reduced the baking time and checked these until they did not jiggle.
The outside was done to my liking, but the center obviously was still a bit well.
Perhaps I should just go back to making tenderloin with bearnaise sauce and potato soup.
My tried and trues.
Seems my husband is more a Ellizabeth Gaskell man than a Jane Austen man.
He was actually drawn into this BBC mini series and watched the last three hours with me.
I like this mini-series very much.
I think Elizabeth Gaskell has shown us a slice of life we don't see in our pretty, pristine Jane Austen books and movies.
Life was very grim for many people during this era and I thought it was interesting to see.
This movie is about workers and masters in the "north" of England; industrial age struggles.
And it is a love story.
Here is the quote I remember....Margaret writes to a friend and describes the conditions in the cotton mills.
Margaret Hale: I believe I've seen hell and it's white, it's snow white.
Somehow....I can relate to that quote.
I wonder what this week will bring?
