We had some long standing friends visit over the weekend and I made this cake. It was recommended by a friend and it certainly lived up to its reputation. Yesterday I found some of the left over pears languishing in the tin and thought why not tweak the recipe and see if it is just as good? So I replaced the bar of chocolate for two heaped dessert spoons of cocoa and omitted the butter completely and it tasted just as good as the original!
I thought I would also respond here to a few requests made on my last posting with regard to permaculture. Here are some sites that I have found helpful:
Flo Scott Permaculture Designer I have had a few face book conversations with Flo and apart from writing about landbased permaculture she has also used the design principles with regard to observing and managing a chronic health condition.
Looby Macnamara I first heard of Looby when I saw a you tube video based on her book "People and Permaculture." I think she was the person that took permaculture design to another level and applied it to people and relationships. From this one can see how it could then be applied to not only personal interactions but in the wider community, business and schools.
The Permaculture Association This is the place for accessing local groups, courses and a membership subscription.
Hope these links are useful, I know they have helped me enormously.
I am flying solo as from tomorrow! Dave will be in Edinburgh tomorrow and Thursday as he has three intensive physio sessions at this clinic. This will be the first of many fortnightly sessions for a total of twenty five treatments.
