Valentine’s Party singalong with musician and songwriter Bryn Teeling, it was his first time to visit the Forbury and play and all our residents loved his music, not too modern and not too old. He comes from Wales and he was impressed with residents enjoying themselves and dancing! we will have him back soon!
Today Muriel inspired us with a French custom of honouring the visit of the three kings to see the baby Jesus. Muriel, Maylin, Pat, Hilda, Lydia, Freda and Della made Galette des Rois. This was a three layered flaky pastry with an almond filling. It was really delicious and the residents enjoyed it at tea time. After the cooking we enjoyed a singing and poetry session with hats to remind us of the three kings.
Today Lydia, Pat, Edna, Marjorie and Hilda made delicious pizzas which we shared with everyone at tea time.
The group made the dough, stretching it over round tins. They then spread the pizza bases with tomato puree and chose toppings from orange pepper pieces, chopped mushrooms, cheese, land cress leaves, winter savoury herb leaves, chopped garlic and olives. Everyone was pleased with the results.
