My week in photos

Well, basically all I have been doing the past week is cooking, knitting, and ... nope that's it.

I made lemon pudding cake my friend Anne's blog. Seriously, it's delicious and magical. I highly recommend it.



I finished the front and back of the sweater. I haven't sewed it up yet, because that is my least favourite part.


I made Inspector Climate try it on to see if would fit. This series of photos is basically why I married this guy...he knows how to be silly. I like that.


I don't know why the picture quality is so fuzzy, I blame the bathroom lighting in our apartment.



I call this blue steel.

This is the beginnings of a sleeve. I've actually finished this one now and I'm working on the second one.

On Saturday, Inspector Climate and I walked to our favourite nursery to buy some plants for our summer garden. We bought two tomato plants, a yellow capsicum plant, green beans, and a selection of herbs. It was a really good day.

Sunday was less of a good day. I fell straight into the pits of depression. But I also made this! A jumbo chickpea pancake from Oh She Glows. I roasted some onion and potato and added some fried zucchini to the top. Delicious.


In other gardening news, our olive tree is blossoming! I hope we get some olives this year.


And our capsicum plant already has a baby pepper on it!


How are you doing?

  1. I so want to try that pudding cake! What a wonderful model you have to knit for. My Greatgran always made beautiful cardigans for my GreatGrandad..who always looked as if he was ready for a tea-party..well, a game of Bridge. They played lots of Bridge.

  2. A workmate just gave me a huge bag of lemons this morning, so I'm intrigued by the pudding...

    You've had such a productive week! So many creations (so much yummy food), and nature is helping by making such beautiful produce available to you :-) Lovely!

  3. I have comments about all the pictures...seriously. The pudding delicious, I can't wait to see the finished sweater (and Inspector Climate's modeling), and I'm super jealous of your garden. I don't really have outdoor space. :(

  5. Looks like a great week to me. Don't you just love going out to the garden and seeing how it's coming along? That's the only thing about Autumn I don't really love . . . saying goodbye to fresh veggies from the garden, and no more flowers to cut and bring indoors. Sigh.

  6. Oh one of my favourite joys of the blog world ... Seeing what is going on in other parts of the world. Here we are cleaning up the remains of our garden and there you are beginning yours! Being a lover of plants, I find that very interesting. In fact, I remember the very first post of yours I read ... I was about your little lemon tree.

    And speaking of lemons, I am now off to check out the recipe for the Lemon Pudding Cake because that sounds just too delicious. :)

  13. I think pudding cake would be tasty, and also efficient, because two desserts at one time, right?
