An indoor day

It was icy and wet outside. Snowflakes floated down but the ground was mostly just soggy. The temperature didn't reach 2 degrees. The hothouse was more like an icebox. The chooks were locked up in their warm, dry shed. We lit a fire early and kept it fired up all day. It was a perfect day for baking: hazelnut and chocolate biscuits for afternoon tea and fish pie for dinner.


  1. those biscuits look yummy.

    1. They are a Matthew Evans recipe from a recent SBS Feast magazine. David has taken the leftovers down to the classic movie night at the Palais tonight - good thing or I'd eat them all!
