Daring Bakers!!

Found the brill Daring Bakers while flikr and blog hopping in may and just had to join!

June's Challenge, hosted by Kelly and Ben was a Danish Braid, what a challenge!! First time i made pastry and reading the instructions had me nervous!!
It was soooo much fun tho and i will deff make it again. Adj loved it and was so impressed... gotta admit I was impressed too.

made the yummy apple filling and what a treat!

look at the scrumminess of pastry and caramelised apple!!

Hmmmm.... how many WW points in a slice???

*edit* Forgot to add,

I used 1/2 the recipie and made one plait, changed small bit of dough recipie (orange juice as am allergic to citrus fruits esp oranges, used a little syrup and water for the liquid, no cardomon so used some permento instead - my spice of the month:) )used the apple filling but added extra spices.!*edit*
The pastry making has really given me the confidence to try new things which is one of the reasons I joined DB.... watch this space.

Thanks for the challenge hunnies!

Trial was last week, what a sureal week it was too. Just getting back into the loop of things. Plus internet and phone was up the creek!!

Anyway.... It was a hard week for all. Listening to all the evidence... hearing all the details about that night Seeing the brute in the dock and hearing his lies and rubbish....

The Jury found him GUILTY of GBH with intent!! Whooohoooo!!!

sentencing will be in 4-6weeks and we will go to see how long the Judge decides.

Journalist who wrote article before the trial is in contempt of court as there was an order made and will have to face judge.... goes to show you cant just do what you want without regard for anyone else!!

So we are happy with the verdict. We can continue to get on with the healing and practical stuff without the worry/stress of trial looming.

I feel so odd tho, like it's over but it's not.....

I really had to rely on God last week and prayed so much.... He truly is able.
The defence lawyer tried to get the 3 counts dropped!! can you believe it???

Thanks again to all you who have supported me and our family (should that be my family and I??) throughout this terrible ordeal. I know you will continue to do so xxx
