What to do with Christmas port?
1 oz. butter 3 spring onions, chopped ¾ cup Port teaspoon onion powder Teaspoon cornflour Zest of a small orange Salt and pepper to taste 1 bay leaf 1 sprig thyme
After meat is cooked and while it is resting deglaze the pan with the butter and soften the onions then add other ingredients and reduce. Whole process should take about 4 minutes
We had ours over pigeon. But would work with venison, sausages or pork. The orange gives it a lovely lift.
I used my scan n cut to make a few cards that weren’t too quick but neither too fussy.
Pleased with the drop shadow on the ‘happy’, pleased I used scraps and bulk cut the letters, and love the embossing . Maybe I went overboard with the mica misting but everything is sparkly.
4 hours in and still no finished garment …
Thanks to my zoom sewing buddy we have made it to stage 26 of 41 on this ‘simple’ pattern. Simultaneous sewing from the same pattern is great fun and we don’t get in each other’s way.
January 3, a papercraft day
This year’s resolution is to make something / be creative every day. A daily project or stage of something larger should exercise the creative muscles. No further restrictions. Just daily making to make every day count.
The log will be on a new page of this site’2021 daily makes’, open to inspection to keep me on my toes!
