Various stuff

I haven't been very good at posting lately. Firstly I feel like a cup of tea and a nice sit down with a book when I get home from work (even though I enjoy it) and secondly I have this huge backlog of photos I have to download and then deal with. OK, I've done the first part, which is harder than it used to be because my old download program no longer works with my new PC so I have to manually create a library for each day. And I had photos going back to December.

Anyway, one thing at a time. I made Hamantaschen last week, using a new recipe, and I was very pleased with how they turned out this time (though the kitchen still looked like a flour bomb had hit it; rolling dough out isn't one of my top skills). I took some in to work since it's something people do there: cakes for birthdays or just because people have made something nice they want to share, and they all disappeared very quickly.

The fillings were traditional prune and lemon, raspberry jam, orange marmalade, and Nutella. My favourite was the marmalade as it was very tart. I will make more of those next year.

[Edit] Recipe given in comments.

Next up (well, maybe tomorrow): the Pasifika festival we went to yesterday. :-)
