day out in Cardiff

As I had work in the Craft in the Bay Summer Show last year I was asked if I'd like to have five pots in their "past exhibitors" display. I delivered five saltglazed jars and boxes today. I'll have to get a photo of them in situ next time I visit the gallery/shop.

Then a browse around a certain Swedish store for inspiration (and free coffee!!) and a couple of useful (and will be used!) items for the kitchen.

Next a visit to another gallery run by a workers' co-operative to deliver a storage jar that I've bartered (along with a bowl) for a lino print.

Then the official reason for today's trip to Cardiff- one tooth having the preparation work for a crown. Temporary on, real one in a fortnight.

I came out of the dentist's surgery to...snow!! Naturally I thought of The Carpenter who is commuting by bike....a quick phone call, and yes, he could finish half an hour early!! The snow didn't last long, but we did stick to the main road to go home.
Having company on the journey home was enjoyable too, good conversation and plans discussed too.
Time for a cuppa then out again to the velodrome...definitely a day on the move!
I was glad to get home to a simple supper made by The Carpenter...steamed potatoes, salad and step is to teach him how to make the pizza from scratch instead of taking it out of the freezer!!

Advice to The Carpenter.

Buy ready made pizza dough. Spread base with green pesto (right to the edges), slice a large tomato and 'mostly' cover the base, tear bits of Mozzerela (sp?) and scatter, place a few strips of anchovy on top, and cook for 20 mins.

The finest ever pizza, and all made in 2 mins.

I'll try him with the pesto...sounds good- although being several generations veggies we'll pass on the fish!
He used to do more baking, he has got out of the habit. We'll have to carry on compiling together his recipe book of recipes he will use.

Replace Anchovies with Basil leaves. How's that!

Must get basil seeds sown....

I'm liking the sound of Cro's pizza! My mouth is watering, better go and eat some lunch.
