    It's :rain: here. Has been since around 11.

    I will have some lunch shortly, then it's into town to go and visit the Art Society's annual exhibition.

    Mid to late August, while they're only just starting to turn brown is when to pick. Then spread them out on newspaper to dry - the nuts will turn brown and drop out of the husks.

    They're early this year. I decided to go and pick after I'd seen some crushed by the side of the road.

    I also have hazel in my garden, but I lost that battle with the squirrels years ago.

    Brown sauce is the sauce-of-last-resort here chez Casa Reynard.

    Sweet chilli sauce on bacon is the sauce-du-jour.

    That was a very fine pork pie. :hungry: Especially with a dab of home made beetroot chutney on the side.

    FYI - it's one of the "Ultimate" pork pies from the Tesco deli counter. Made by Walkers. Well worth the full whack of £3.50, although I only paid 88p in this instance... :laugh:

    When I were a lad Walkers Pork Butchers had several shops in Leicester where their excellent Pork Pies could be purchased, the 2lb 'fluted' ones were fantastic. :hungry: Then they closed the shops and started supplying supermarkets. :thumbsdown: :cursing:

  12. I've been busy on the swords again . I've decided to use the metal hand guard bit as a mould to make a paper mache one for the other sword.
    Time is running out and there is still more work to do on them . Plus I've arranged to go for a ride tomorrow morning .

    I haven't quite reached that milestone yet.;)

    Edit to add: Today isn't the day by the way. The cheque came today but was dated from my birthday.

    And you don't go to Tesco, IIRC...

    Shame, the fluted ones are particularly fine. :hungry: They must be, as Lexi will steal the pie off my plate... :blush:

    That's the local Art Society's exhibition perused.

    There are worse ways of spending a rainy summer afternoon.
