Some baking, some cross-stitch

on April 19, 2005

Coming back to my previous entry:
The empanadas worked out quite nicely.
The quantities I used made four Cornish pasty-sized empanadas, I think I’d do a smaller quantity next time. Also there was slightly too much filling for the pastry. The red wine made the pastry go a funny blotchy colour but you couldn’t really see it once it was cooked. I used a little less wine than the recipe I posted says, but next time I think I’d go for the whole quantity as the pastry was quite dry in the end (it was actually rather like Cornish pasty pastry!) And I would leave out the baking powder.

I’ve finally completely finished my big cross-stitch. It measures about 40 cm by 20, but the stitches are quite small and it’s taken me nearly ten years to do. A picture of it – for anyone who’s interested – can be found at:

It’s actually brighter than that, the flash has whited the colours out a bit.
Now I just need to handwash and iron it, we already have a frame.
