Nothing to do with the weather, although it has been particularly unseasonably gorgeous just recently around here. No, the drought I have is a photographic one. When I decided to do the 4x6 Photo Love project I didn't really give much thought to exactly how many photos I would be needing by the end of the year. This month I'm needing nine and I'm running out of inspiration! Plus at last weekend's crop I needed 10 photos and I'm going to the Eclectic Keepsakes crop on Saturday and I will be needing at least two for that .... I clearly need to get out more - if only to take a few more photos! It's hard to find a variety of pictures all in the same place or theme.
On a totally different subject, I found myself in the staff room at lunchtime and there had been a delivery of books from a book club that delivers to school. I found myself irresistably drawn to one simply entitled 'Chocolate'. In it I found a delicious sounding Chocolate Swirl Brownie with Fudge Topping. Chocolate Brownie and Fudge - a marriage made in heaven! So I have scribbled down the recipe with the thought of having my own Great British Bake Off tomorrow afternoon. The swirl in the brownie is a bit of a cheesecakey mixture in amongst the chocolatey gooey sponge. Did I mention the chocolate fudge topping? If it is a success, I will share the recipe but will need to do a reasonable amount of consumer testing before I share. Followed by an unreasonable amount of exercise to burn off all those naughty calories!
