My neighbour was popping round for tea and chat and I usually try and have something to temp - as she is currently wheat free I could only think macaroon, so that is what I did( I only had an hour's notice).
They didn't suffer from the omission of rice flour, but would have been Divine had I remembered to buy rice paper - my favourite bit. As I had a spare egg yoke I made Melting Moments - the two always go together in my opinion. Years ago, and I mean "yester year" years ago women's magazines used to give baking day recipe suggestions; there was consideration for not wasting anything, and economy of the use of the oven - as once upon a time you used to think about how much it was costing to put the oven on.
My husband brought home more blackberries, and so I plan to do stewed apples and blackies, not particularly inspiring, but lovely never the less.
I love this time of year.
