Sunday Stories: Shortbread Buttons & Introducing Florence!
Two highlights of my weekend were that Matt and I discovered this tiny farmshop in the village, where we bought two huge cooking apples to make a delicious Saturday night crumble. I'd heard about the shop but not been before so I'm excited to pop along regularly and buy fresh fruit and veggies for my juicer. Then, this afternoon I made these pretty shortbread buttons and bunnies (with a bit of help from Mum!) They are truly scrummy and I think they look so sweet. I was so pleased with the bunny cutter, picking it up at The Cupcake Cafe Shop in Margate for 50p last weekend. I got the idea for the button shapes from a recipe book this morning. It's super simple, you just use something circular (we used a bottle top) to make the smaller circle imprint, then you use a cocktail stick to create the holes. You do this to the pre-baked dough and voila!
I'm feeling really preoccupied this weekend as Matt and I have been busy planning a European trip for July/August. We're hoping to get interrail passes and go between Paris, Brussels, Amsterdam, Koln and Luxembourg in ten days. We're in the process of finding all our accommodation and the excitement is just building so much in me that I can't get on with what I should be doing (revising for a Maths test)!
I hope you've all had fantastic weekends in the sunshine!
