Altering? Bite Me.

Yeah yeah. You all thought I was going to be an old whinge bag again didn't you! I know you did so don't fib.
But no - this time I bring you news of an altered success - and a possibly too close-up a picture of it!
Here's the altered loaf we made at the weekend whilst scoffing our BBQ lunch. Layers of barbecue grilled aubergine, pepper and red onion, added mozzarella in a hollowed out loaf basically. It's a prepare ahead thing and there's a little bit more to it - but oh my it is lovely and so worht the 'effort'. I slice it carefully and warm it slightly in a dry frying pan before erm, 'serving'. (For serving, read scoffing). But the warming thing is because I can't bear the thought of cold cooked veggies - frankly at my age, anything straight from the fridge is too cold!
So that's this week's altering triumph.
I've been doing more hearts for another sale this weekend; that Jan, she makes me work really hard! Didn't sell a single card at last week's stall, so hoping with a better display rigged up that there'll be more people and less shyness about browsing them....we'll see, huh! All the hearts went, at £3, so you were right. And just to take the taste of veggies out of your head - here's this week's batch - I've done 2 of each, all with magnets on the back rather than hangy wire or ribbon - seemed the preferred method last week. So now I have to sleep with Mr D to get some more cut out...it's OK everyone, I genuinely think the sacrifice is worth it.

Not sire how I missed this post. Must have been working hard in my studio. I am a vegetarian, along with having several other quirky habits, so that sandwich looks lovely to me. YUM!!

The latest round of hearts are beautiful. I can see why they are snapped up as fast as they get made.

Carmen said...

Look at the colours on that loaf! Fantabulous!

Do you take custom orders on your hearts Julia? Think you can slip me in your next batch? I'd love one in purples and blacks with that voice talking one :P Ooh I do hope you say yes :P (Start an Etsy or Folksy shop next please!)
