This happy accident came about after straining out the water from the pumpkin pulp I used to make my pumpkin pie. Sure, I probably could have made a super juice, but when Little Pea’s 7 o’clock bedtime has been and gone, I am hankering after something with a little more bite…
I searched in vain for a mobile for Little Pea that wouldn’t be too in her face/cost a small fortune and inspired by her granny’s superior effort over the summer (see below), I eventually decided to try making one. This yielded mixed results – I am not sure I saved much money and it certainly looks homemade – but she loves it, so thats enough for me.
At a time of year normally associated with tidying up the garden, it seems that a few green residents in our Brixton patch are positively basking in the Indian summer. Brushing past the pungent basil on the way into the kitchen is a real pleasure – surely autumn can’t already be here?
A big impact for relatively little outlay, these are blousey, easy to make and they last. Tie small ones to string and garland your house.
How is it that someone we have only known for four and a half months can give so much happiness? I am so, so pleased to be able to say that. And to finally believe it.
These aren’t pure frangipane, being more of a sponge/almond hybrid, so perhaps they should be called frangi-fairies.
