During my cupboard tidying, cleaning and sorting I came across the makings for a cake ... slightly out of date with a Best Before date of August 2018 ... but who's counting, never me that's for sure ;-)
And as it was Alan's 60th yesterday it just had to be a proper grown up birthday cake. It's supposed to serve twelve people so I think we'll both be eating cake for a few days now, as happily it is completely dairy free!
I needed a non-foody day so today I plumped for 'future food' sorting. Sorting out my rather large stash of seeds that were stored in my lovely old battered drawer (£1 at a car boot sale a few years ago).
I went mad and poured all the out-of-date ones into a bowl for the chickens (they loved them), then I went ruthless and picked out only the packets of seeds for foods that I know we love and that I may in fact get round to planting ... it's not a foregone conclusion this year ... I ended up with 56 packets of seeds for the car boot sale and about the same again or perhaps a few more, potentially for use this year and the following one by us.
Now they are nice and neat in two much smaller boxes, the top one for the car boot sale and the bottom one is now in the 'Jam Cupboard'.
So no seeds taking up space in the kitchen ... result :-)
