We're back to normal now after Living on Rations for a month.
Taking the rations or what was left of them off the kitchen shelf meant I could have a good wipe down, something I usually do about once every couple of weeks, but it was so much easier this time with everything off
Putting things back to normal made me smile, I like my shelves. We don't change the things on these shelves much as they are things in regular use not ornamental items, so there was not much different to how it looked a month ago.
It was when I was emptying the shelf that I noticed something that hadn't been tried or used at all during our rationing period ...
... the Camp coffee.
It has been put into the kitchen cupboard, for some reason I can't bring myself to try it, I will pluck up the courage ... one day!!!
Something that has changed since rationing is my use of wholewheat flour. We really do prefer things made with it, not wholly with the brown flour but with a good percentage. It really adds something to the flavour of most cakes, pastry and in this case scones.
Homemade scones with homemade jam, not a bad afternoon snack :-)
