A glorious

golden day

on the Island

 yesterday.

Today is cool and cloudy.

Banging, rattling and thumping sounds are coming from the roof.

It’s chimney cleaning day.

Inside?

Well, we’ll have to wait a bit for a cheery fire in the woodstove.

But there’s a warm spicy fragrance flooding the kitchen.

Cloves, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and raisins simmering on the stove top.

Hard-working chimney sweeps need the occasional treat.

Recipe tomorrow.

Happy Monday!

    This looks and sounds very similar to something my mother in law taught me to make. Very spicy, moist, dense and delicious beyond words! I look forward to the recipe to see if it is the same one.
