On Sunday I ran my first 10k race, and I did it in a faster time than I was expecting - just shy of 54 minutes! (I was extra speedy because I'd double booked my day and had to rush back to the theatre for a rehearsal - more on that another day!)
Massive thanks to the organisers and participants of the Bath Two Tunnels event - what a fab day!
Beans, beans good for your heart :) I certainly hope so, because between runner-bean season at our allotment, and the Offspring turning vegan, we've eaten a BARREL of beans lately! You can just see our baby bean plants behind these spud flowers...
Very vague recipe, anyone?
Home made baked-beans by me
Chop an onion really finely, and gently sautee in the oil of your choice till really soft. Add a little cloud of paprika and some turmeric, with a tablespoonful of tomato puree and a splosh of water (it wants to look suitable saucy!).
Then chuck in a tin of butter beans and heat through. YUM! We ate them with leftover nut-loaf and some peas.
Today was a day at home, so I managed to sew up these little dog walking bags - they're great for popping some poop-bags in, with your phone, keys and treats when you go for a stroll with your four-legged chum. Or even with your two legged chums, if you're not really a pet-person (although I'd hope you'd manage without the poop-bags then!)
These are available from my shop if you would like one. I love sewing them - they're so simple and when I hold a bunch of them in my hand I feel like I've got a bunch of upside-down balloons!
