As you all know from my previous post I am soooo proud that I managed to make top notch yorkies!  So I decided to make some mini toad in the holes for my Jubilee Celebration.  Here is the recipe for my yorkies – https://kscookinginthekitchen.wordpress.com/2012/04/08/yorkshire-puddings/ and then simply add one or two chunks of cooked sausage (I made some links the night before) before putting in the oven.  I served with some buttered baby potatoes and I made some onion gravy – but to be honest – its too complicated to post the method for making the gravy cos I ‘steal’  it when I am making stewed sausage – so when I make my legendary stewed sausage I will post the recipe then – I plan to within the next week or two.

Ok so yesterday I had a wee celebration to mark the Queens Diamond Jubilee.  Any excuse for some lovely food and fine alcohol!  My only wish was to have the sun shining so we could all sit in the garden – but no – not in Scotland!

I apologise for the bad photography and poor presentation – I was running late – as usual – and I just threw the food on the table! 😦

First up – some sarnies!

Next up mini toad in the holes with onion gravy and buttered potatoes.  Chicken was on the menu too – plain drumsticks and also some spicy drumsticks

 

Frittata!

 

Potato salad

 

Trifle 

 

I set my niece a challenge – asked her to make a traditional Victoria sponge – the recipe she followed was not so traditional and for some apparent reason when she added pink colouring to the icing- it turned orange…go figure! lol.  It tasted great though – so a big well done to her!

 

I will soon post details of recipes/techniques used – but for now I am going to enjoy some sausage sarnies and watch the 1st of 3 days of Jubilee celebrations on TV whilst I ‘recover’ from my indoor street party!

 

Enjoy x
