Project: fake sausage casserole
I'm veggie, but don't often bother with quorn 'fake meats'... but my friend served a quorn sausage casserole when I went for dinner a few weeks and I had to have a go myself.
serves 4 (generously)
chop 2 onions & a pile of garlic, fry. Add to a big saucepan with a tin of tomatoes including juice, a tin of chick peas, chopped carrots, a chopped celery, 3 chopped peppers, 8 chopped quorn sausages, a glass of red wine, a squirt of tomato puree, a splash of tabasco sauce, and salt & pepper. Simmer over a low heat stirring occasionally for about an hour. Nice served with chunky bread slices to mop up sauce!
this is really yummy, and being quorn is fairly healthy too... but if you eat as much of it as I did you'll still be wearing it on your hips and belly... off to the quidditch pitch to run laps I think...

Project; blackberry & almond chocolates
On a walk, I found a whole lane of blackberry bushes with perfectly ripe, untouched berries! I ate a fair amount on the way home, but saved enough to make myself a little snack...
since it was an impromptu thing, I hadn't really planned anything and the only moulds I could find were these hans solo ones
not ideal (they are too small really with such chunky fillings), but did the job. chop a large handful of almonds and threw them into 200g of melted milk chocolate with about the same amount of berries. Mix and pour into moulds, then into the fridge. Perfect as a half time treat!

Project: TM patches
each of these little patches for my other swap partner took about a show for me to complete between cues, which is around an hour & a half of active craft time
