Greenhouse and Cheesecake…

My seedlings have amazed me even more. I got home this evening to find that the ‘dwarf’ bean seedling that was *just* showing above the compost last night is now… touching the top of the propagator. It’s huge. As are the courgettes.

As a couple of you know, but most don’t, I’m trying to gradually teach myself to cook. The idea being to a) eat less processed junk (which actually now I think of is working without me noticing), and b) be able to cook properly for my kids, when we have them (in the future. not now :P ) …

Sooo… today was Chris’ birthday, so I got together the ingredients for Lemon Cheesecake, as he doesn’t like proper cake (strange man). There was a slight hitch when I got home and it was announced ‘I’ve borrowed mum’s car, let’s go out!’.. so I ended up in a mad rush managing to make a cheesecake, from scratch, in the time it takes Chris to drive his mum home and get back.. about 20 mins. I was very impressed with myself :D

When we got around to trying it a little while ago, it was even better than I expected. Though probably about a million calories as its ingredients are double cream, condensed milk, cream cheese, digestive biscuits, butter (and some lemons). It’s pretty damn good though :D

Oh yeah, and despite convincing myself that plastic greenhouses are vulnerable to the wind, waste of money, etc… I’ve now got one. We walked into Morrisons and in the entrance was a whopping great big one, set up. It’s big enough for me to easily stand up in, shelving along one side. I fell in love, as it was only £25. So Chris bought it for me as my one-month-early birthday pressie (as we reckon they’ll sell out, and he never knows what to buy me anyway). Woot. Greenhouse.

(and yeah. some more compost. I think I’ve almost hit 500l of the stuff this year.)
