My goodness me, homemade Victorias from Grandma and Grandpa Piper. They look pretty good considering they’ve travelled over 5,000 miles!
Post-Thanksgiving walk, just before the sun sets behind the moor
I was reminded of Jason Griffiths’ Manifest Destiny: A Guide to the Essential Indifference of American Suburban Housing during a conversation yesterday at Peter & Sally Nencini’s lovely stitching workshop at The Tetley.
No, we don’t take every single guest to Yorkshire Sculpture Park… Why do you ask?
I say short-ish since this is short relative to the number of fantastic places to visit / eat / imbibe / shop in San Francisco and the Bay Area. Compiled primarily for my lovely cousin in anticipation of her trip out west, also so that I don’t forget some places that I really like. I’ll keep adding to the list as places occur to me.
Henry Moore’s signature, the mark of Bildgießerei Hermann Noack and a little sheep poo on one of Moore’s bronze sculptures in Yorkshire Sculpture Park.
What a sentence! Never forget the Right Honourable William Huskisson MP, possibly “the world’s first widely reported railway casualty”. People just don’t write tributes like they used to, eh? Just one of the many treasures in the National Railway Museum‘s warehouse.
My Grandma Piper’s blueberry muffins. There have never been better. These keep for a good few days in an airtight container but are definitely best eaten fresh from the oven, split and spread with a little butter.
The original recipe is in USA cups, and I’ve tried to provide metric conversions below using Delia’s charts for reference. Ignore the conversions written in the actual photo, those were pulled from a less reliable source.
I almost always use frozen blueberries since they’re cheaper and available year-round. If using frozen berries, soak them briefly in water and then drain to remove the excess ice crystals.
