I amuse myself with some of the things I do, like when I'm going to sleep. I have a thing for Action movies and last night I saw that Die Hard was going to be on TV at a time when I would be snuggling down. If gives me that warm fuzzy feeling, I know the movie so well that I don't get into it and can just fall asleep. I'm not half listening out for the dialogue and even the gun fire/explosions are soothing. On the other hand if I'm not that tired I can easily watch and enjoy it. Con Air is another fav, although I do admit to keeping an ear out for my favourite scenes with that one.
Any ho - The grapefruit marmalade was a success this time I am happy to report. 4 jars and a bowl (ran out of jars) were produced. My little pantry is starting to build up. My next objective is to use some of it. I also treated myself once more to another cook book - River Cottage Handbook No.2 Preserves. Flicking through it I am making a mental note to myself to purchase fruits that are on special, ahh that creative gene is tickling me. At the back of the book it has a list of some food festivals including a Citrus Fruit Festival - for marmalade's held in Cumbria. That sounds interesting, I have never been to Cumbria I don't think.
I tried to give my neighbour a jar of my marmalade which she was about to take until I mentioned that it was grapefruit at which point she steped back said that she couldn't have it as she was on Statins for her heart. It turns out that there is something in grapefruit that interferes with the Statins so I made her treacle bread instead.
