Yorkshire summer holiday meet

Some of us get together from time to time in order to talk about the latest issue of Heat magazine, global politics, important developments in lipstick manufacture and, er, Baby-Led Weaning.

Yorkshire summer holiday meet

Postby sparkling » 20 Jun 2012, 09:55

Come on people, it's been AGES - last meet I was still pregnant and by the time we've organised ourselves she'll almost certainly be eating :o

So how about a meet during the holidays? I'll start the ball rolling with dates - most of our usual activities are off over the summer, so any day of the week is fine, although prefer not Friday.

w/c 23rd July - yes
w/c 30th July - yes
w/c 6th August - no
w/c 13th August - yes
w/c 20th August - yes (excep fri)
w/c 27th August - yes

I could be there. No concrete plans for holidays as we're off on hol before term breaks up. Depends on visits to parents/sisters etc. But really would like to get together again if only for some more of Lin's rhubarb cake!

How about a monday then to fit in with LB2001?

What so you can all laugh at me being mad enough to have a third? I'm embracing the third trimester already, I'm so obviously pregnant that random strangers offered me a seat at the train station yesterday.

Oh, and BTW I can make a mean rhubarb cake as well :)

LOL. Sounds like a convenient excuse.

Points in my favour 1) I'm Scottish (frankly we can outbake anyone, it's not just the deep fried pizzas that give us the world's highest coronary rate you know) 2) I'm a farmers daughter (farmers live on homebakes plus I regularly won prizes for my baking at the Young Farmer's Rally so my skill is proven) 3) My Mum taught home economics (so I can't remember not being able to bake).

As I'm now a lady of leisure, I can do pretty much any day except Fridays.

Away w/c 6 Aug.
W/c 23rd July is Stompy's last week at preschool so I'd rather not take her out any of those days, so that would limit me to Wed/Thurs that week.
Various relatives threatening visits throughout August, but no dates confirmed yet, so will just need to take my chances.

Loving the idea of a bake-off! ;)

:D :D

So this meet is a bake-off and the rest of us are the judging panel, right? Sounds good to me...

I don't work Mon or Tues, so if it falls on one of those days, I'll come along! Oh, and I've never made rhubarb cake, but our plant is getting mahoosive, so I'm going to have to start making some soon...

X-posted with LB2K+1 .... now feeling a little unsure about a bake-off ....

And Steeler :D :D :D to being a lady of leisure!!!

I use the Riverford rhubarb and cinnamon cake recipe here: http://mixmashandmunch.blogspot.co.uk/2 ... rning.html except I use ground ginger instead of cinnamon (because frankly who wouldn't, nothing beats rhubarb and ginger). It's gorgeous warm or cold with lashings of cream. More pudding than cake really.

ETA: I noticed she has different timing from Riverford, the original recipe says 75 minutes at 180C. I think my hot oven needed only slightly less than that.
