The house is now reeking of vinegar thanks to my productive Sunday spent preserving my allotment glut! I have pickled the last of the beetroot ( recipe here )and made chutney from some apples and tomatoes (recipe here ) - deeply satisfying, even if I am the only member of this household who will eat any of it!
I have also had a bit of a revelation of the chocolate variety (thanks Sue for the link!) with these fantastic 'cheat' brownies - no chocolate required!! They tasted amazing, you couldn't even tell they were cheaty ones, lovely gooey consistancy and mega rich - I had to put the lid on the tin very quickly or they would have all been demolished in a oner!
If you only make one thing in the next week, make it these!! I added some walnuts, and was thinking a handful or two of chocolate chips would have made them even more convincing! I love the blog these came from too - Stone Soup, bursting with ideas and inspiration, unfortunatly they were just a bit too easy to make, and I am now fearing I have used up my sugar/fat allowance for the month in just one day!
