Hot, hot, hot
Yes, it continues to be hot here. 34 degrees today and tomorrow is forecast to be the same.
( about 94 F., I think it would be) I puttered in my flowers this morning, after my walk. It wasn't that warm yet but when I came inside I figured I should close all the windows and doors and keep whatever cool there was safe. Didn't work. By afternoon the house was so warm I figured I might as well bake. I've been meaning to try making Custard Tarts. If any of you watch the BBC comedy As Time Goes By you'll remember that Lionel LOVES his custard tarts. Anyway, found a recipe and proceeded to make them. They were a disappointment, mainly because the pastry part shrunk ( it was supposed to be pre-baked) and I couldn't put enough filling in ( to be baked a second amount of time). A lot of work for not much results BUT I had taken out 2 disks of frozen pie dough and had enough to make a "rustic" blueberry pie. The kind you make on a cookie sheet with the dough sort of pulled up all around the filling. That at least turned out. So well that there's not much left to even take a picture of.
Hope you had a lovely day. Stay cool, Granny M.
