Mini in progress and a delivery!

5 Comments

I am working on a little mini, a sort of funny idea, which I will share more fully later.  am sort of photographing it for a YouTube thing, but I wanted to show a couple of the pages, using one of the Tim Holtz paper pads.

and a side-by-side set:

as you can see from the blocks that will be where the photos sit, it isn’t big, 1/2 an A4 sheet, and there is a reason for that, which I will get back to when it’s all done!

But while I was working, I got interrupted by a delivery!

After so long in the UK we have mostly found substitutes for things, or simply conditioned ourselves not to miss them.  But every so often nothing else will do!  I made cornbread last night with semolina and Country Grain bread mix (cause I was out of Masa Harina, and had used the last of the white flour for the stew) and it was fine, but it really gave me a hankering for corn muffins.  Progresso Bread Crumbs already have the italian herbs and garlic mixed in and has rye and corn flour as well as wheat – chicken parmigiano just isn’t the same without them.  And while I could make pumpkin pie filling from actual pumpkins, why would I when Libby’s is 100% pumpkin, cooked to perfection and mashed for me? Ah, bliss! Oh, and don’t tell DS but there just might be a 6-pack of pure indulgence in there too.

  1. MA, not sure if it would be the right stuff, but Sainsbury’s had large bags of corn meal in their World Foods section this weekend. I’ve never made corn bread, so I might be on the wrong track.

    • Thanks! I will def. check on that. Large bags of cornmeal will be useful once I run out of muffin mix. You should give corn bread a try – it’s yummy, esp. with Chili!

  2. Despite only being in the US for 6 weeks over the summer while dh was working there, I’m pining for Diet Mountain Dew. Loved it! Enjoy your delivery!

  3. I don’t miss much at all, but I’d love a slice of pumpkin pie……

  4. Oh me…the things we take for granted! Glad your Thankgiving will be a bit more yummy this year!

    Your mini book looks veerrrryyyy interesting! Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
