Most of my weekend has been spent working on putting this quilt top together and piecing the back together for it as well. It is now at the quilting stage some of which I did today and will finish off tomorrow.
I even had time for a bit of blog browsing as well, Robyn alerted me to this giveaway which of course I entered, can’t pass up the chance for some fabric plus I quite like Lila Tueller Designs having made a couple of quilts using her fabric before.
Ever since the warmer weather came around last year I’ve been making this quick ice-cream. It isn’t real ice-cream but as my cholesterol is a bit high it makes a very good substitute:
- Freeze chopped fruit (bananas or mango for example)
- Put about 1- 1 1/2 cups of the frozen fruit in a food processor
- Pulse fruit till it is very finely chopped
- Add 1/2 cup of yoghurt
- Pulse until you have a creamy mix
Our current favourite fruit is banana and mango, with banana and raspberry a close second. You can actually make this using cream instead of the yoghurt but then it isn’t low cholesterol. If you have quite a sweet tooth you may like to add a bit of icing sugar for extra sweetness, and if you like it a bit firmer just pop it in the freezer for about an hour to firm up.
