What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday #198

Here’s the contents of the kitchen table yesterday, before I cleared it all away for hot chocolate after school.

P1020559

I made a wedding come anniversary card, with a pair of birds, for last week’s class. When I came to take a photo afterwards, I realised my sample was looking a bit grubby. It spoilt the look of the white on white design and I just had to make another cleaner one for posterity.

Peeking in at the back of the table, the Hairy Dieters. I’ve cooked several recipes from this book, even though none of us are on a diet, and they’ve all gone down well. The Paprika Chicken is a favourite with the whole family and The Mechanic is a big fan of the Keralan style prawn curry.

It’s a day of hospital waiting rooms today, for me and my girl, so I’ll share the finished birdy card on Saturday. Want to see what everyone else has on their desk? Check out Julia’s blog for a list of folk joining in this Wednesday.

Love the hairy dieters. Last night we had the crispy chicken, delicious. The Spanish Chicken Bake is a favourite of ours.

I haven't seen that cookbook down here - I'll have a look for it.

What strikes me about your photo today is seeing that some scrap supplies are universal ... I have those scissors and have used that glue before!

I'm not really sure if I like their show, but I have heard the cookery books are good
