Cheese Knots

Great Halloween party last night at Moors Bar in Crouch End.  I do love it so there.  I’m becoming like one of the characters in “Cheers!” I love being a barfly with my little spot near the end so I’ve got a good view of the movies.  James had curated a great selection of horror shorts and fancy dress was encouraged.  I had a massive spider in my hair, perched on top of a messy bun.  I thought I was looking very Helena Bonham Carter but a very drunken woman towards the end of the night was convinced I was channeling Isabella Blow…

Fine by me!

I made a massive batch of Vincent’s Cheese Knots which were absolutely delightful!  Took me a while to get the hang of making the pastry into knot shapes but I got there in the end.

Only a few days to go before NaNoWriMo begins and I’m trying to get my house in order before then.  This place looks like the home of a maniac.  There are a LOT of laundry bags of clothes strewn around the place.  I am tempted to just put them all in the bath and draw the shower curtain across to hide them.  But that doesn’t really solve anything does it?!

    Definitely need to try the cheese knots! Yum!

    All of our space-bagged sweaters are currently covering the floor of our bedroom. I’ve got to switch out summer and winter clothes and haven’t made much progress. I’m too lazy for my own good–I know that if I go in there and go through the sweaters I’ll come up with some excuse not to make dinner…

  2. Ah yes, the horror of the summer/winter swap. I keep taking summer dresses of hangers thinking – did I wear that at all since it came out of storage? It’s so weirdly mild here in England at the moment that I can’t even think about sweaters, but it is coming soon, I know it!
