This weekend I hosted a birthday dinner for my mother in law.
After I had budgeted for the meat in the meal - sadly, no vegetarians here :( - I knew that I must just use what I had in my baking cupboard for the cake - which we had as dessert (another saving!) Sometimes, in the past I have bought a birthday cake but I am trying to be super duper frugal.
So I made cupcakes...
Alex came home from uni for the weekend. We have had lovely home time - crosswords, games, tea and cake.
When Alex was at school it was our tradition to eat Stollen cake after school on the first day back in November after half term. He grinned that I had remembered his November Stollen cake :)
The weather is blustery today and there is much to do.
