The Busy Good Life

 It's been rainy and gloomy here at The Frugal Handmade Home. We ventured out this morning as quick as possible to get some sugar and milk before the heavens opened. We made it home with seconds to spare.
 So what to do? Both the girls seem to want a quiet sleepy day with blankets on the sofa and Disney movies on the TV. Hubby is pottering about doing odd jobs to distract himself from tomorrows big event, the funeral.
 So that leaves me with some novel spare time to do something. I decided to have a kitchen day.
So we now have 10 liters of Rhubarb fizz infusing, I will bottle it on Friday and hopefully we will have some delicious to drink nearer Christmas.
 I tried Elaine's recipe from here as our lunchbox pudding for the week. I have a feeling its going to be a little bit to crumbly though for easy transportation so may be hot pudding with custard instead. Either way it was a lovely quick and frugal recipe.

Another loaf of bread from the bread maker. We had a few slices warm with jam for lunch, it tasted heavenly.

 And yes I know it looks like pond slime but this is actually a huge jar of Rhubarb jam. It's tastes wonderful and is a welcome addition to the preserves cupboard jam stash.

 How have you spent your day?
