Baking and making

Sausage rolls. Love that these are so easy and worked well (this time). Make some short pastry -start by grating cold butter, then rub butter, SR flour, white pepper and a splash of ice water to form a dough. Chill and then roll out to 2mm thickness. Take some fresh pork mince and grate finely one carrot, mix with one egg and more white pepper to taste. Form into a long sausage on top of the dough, roll and bake for 25-30 min on 160C. I freeze some of these uncooked for another time, as its lovely to defrost and have something warm and fresh for the boys after school.
 

 Where is that egg? I'm sure I left it here!
 Card making - focused on a range of garden inspired cards and thinking of painting a Robin for mum for Christmas.
