If we beat them BD they will hate us and it will be like a sketch from League of Gentlemen as they descend on Chateau Crepester with burning torches and pitchforks... ditto if we sweep the board at the Horticultural Show with our giant onions and homemade fig chutney
<or am I getting carried away?>

But are we scared QQ? -no -we are crepeys and we will rage rage at the dying of the light smile
(And I make a mean chocolate and orange cake so take that WI)

Our chocolate cake with homemade jam in will sweep the boards . We will pin our winning rosettes on the wisteria draped veranda.

Talking of cake: I have a plethora of beetroot from a friends allotment. wink
Thinking of making a chocolate beetroot cake.
Anyone got a reliable recipe?
Am looking at nigellas one....smile

bigTillyMint Sun 04-Aug-13 08:31:22

I have just made this beetroot cake, and think DH may have a point when he says I am the world's messiest cook. I managed to get beetroot juice absolutely everywhere - all over the work surface, up the walls, on the floor, on me...

Will let you know how it turns out. smile

Pink handed wave at mrsSgringrin
I've just peeled the beets to roast them and I look like I've been accosted by Barbie

I made a Non Raspberry Cake for DP's birthday yesterday, along with a very nice Hot Meat Curry.

Am having a slightly holiday wardrobe dilemma, as everything I wear these days appears to need ironing (the result of many linen/silk charity shoppe trawls) and I am absolutely buggered if I iron on holiday but feel reluctant to spend Real Money on new clothes.

bigTillyMint Sun 04-Aug-13 12:09:51

MI, you must have a mountain of clothes - you are always getting bargains from the charity shops!

I am supposed to be packing, but I CBA!

motherinferior Sun 04-Aug-13 12:23:13

I don't have a mountain though do have a molehill blush but mainly I have abandoned Tshirts for reasons outlined on the other thread (mumsiness and/or gunt).

Blackduck Sun 04-Aug-13 12:37:04

BTM where are you off to?

I have made meat curry (dp) and channa masala. Have tidied (having detailed dp and ds).

It is peeing with rain here...

Cremolafoam Sun 04-Aug-13 13:41:12

Not forgetting tshirt mono-boob MI grin

I am seeding grass. Bored to tears.
Cake just out of oven and looking lush. Smells gorgeous.

Dh has gone to 'shops' mysteriously. It's our wedding anniversary tomorrow so no doubt will panic buy me something weird . smile

bigTillyMint Sun 04-Aug-13 13:41:50

Off to Turkey tomorrow. Not much packing being done.
It's muggy here and my shorts are feeling tight - should've done that 5:2 thing!

Blackduck Sun 04-Aug-13 13:50:36

Oh - where in Turkey? Quite fancy that myself!
Cremo it is the most fab colour inside!

MrsSchadenfreude Sun 04-Aug-13 13:52:16

Waiting for cake to cool before I ice it. Smells good. We are having a Clear Out.

motherinferior Sun 04-Aug-13 13:55:08

PMSL at the weird panic buy...

bigTillyMint Sun 04-Aug-13 14:22:45

Kusadasi. AI (which will hopefully keep the teens happy!) We are going to have a week on our own and then our friends arrive for 8 dayssmile

Looking forward to hearing what he buys. DH never buys me anything (which is probably just as well...)

Cremolafoam Sun 04-Aug-13 14:55:58

The theme for this anniversary is Lace.

and is thus doomedconfused

motherinferior Sun 04-Aug-13 15:04:28

Cremo, my money's on a skimpy article of underpinning.

motherinferior Sun 04-Aug-13 15:04:39

Or shoelaces.

bigTillyMint Sun 04-Aug-13 15:07:54

There is NO WAY that DH would ever buy me a skimpy article of underpinninggrin

motherinferior Sun 04-Aug-13 15:09:39

Mr Inferior might try, in a hopeful sort of manner, which would go completely ignored grin
