Every year it is extremely humid on the pudding making day and this year was no exception.
Mixing and making breadcrumbs and steaming sounds crazy for this time of the year, however it is definitely worth it.
This year I made the puddings with a good quality Gluten free bread, gluten free flour, organic fruits (including my candied orange peel), organic eggs and butter and replaced the treacle with agave syrup and we think it tastes as good as any previous ones.
Two more to make along with some homemade french style custard, mmmmm.
Mustard and Giggles are becoming friends, probable because Mustard is not in the least bit interested in joining Giggles for afternoon tea.
This bird liked our banana plant when it was fruiting, it is also known as the Banana bird but eats all sorts of insects that would normally feast in our vegetable garden, therefore we really like sharing our home with this bird!
And of course the younger brother wants to take photos as well...
This is a view of our backyard (lots of tall trees) using watercolour paints.
After placing strips of masking tape on the watercolour paper, the leaves were painted in and then the tape removed and given a grey wash.
H chose the Pumpkin because it is taking over the garden and the Ringtail Possum because we have a friend who looks after rescued ones.
