Saturday in the Kitchen....

I seemed to have spent all day today in the kitchen. I made four jars of lemon curd which is a favourite in this house and then made a Victoria sponge and filled it with lemon curd. It makes a nice change to jam. Speaking of jam though, I did pop out this morning to a stall in titchfield that sell strawberries, but they didn't have any today, and I really wanted to get a batch of strawberry jam made. :(
My brother popped in briefly this afternoon to pick up a pair of trainers I'd ordered for him, but as usual with little brothers it was a flying visit.

Off to the teddy bear fair in Dorchester tomorrow, but not holding out much hope of selling much. People just can't afford it at the moment with the credit crunch in full swing. I will try and remember to take the camera so I can post a few pics.
