It's early Sunday morning, and so far the day has gone well! I have an Onion Tart in the oven, enough Pumpkin and Ginger Soup to put in the freezer for those unexpected but very welcome guests that may stumble our way over the Festive Season, twenty Chocolate Cupcakes (recipe and photo courtesy of the delicious Primrose Bakery Cookbook)  ready to be iced  (Vanilla Buttercream Icing) and the washing is on! Having not even had running water in the kitchen until recently, and a kitchen that was barely fit for purpose for the last five years, the novelty of cooking has not yet worn off. I hope it never does! The tart is ready to come out of the oven now so I'm off back to bed! Happy Days!
