I’m no Saint

One of the things I like about SW is that I can have sweet stuff in moderation.
Hubby is very partial to meringue and so am I, so at only 2½ syns per meringue nest, in the early days I would be making my fruit salads with one and a gingernut (also 2½ syns), plus a generous dollop of plain quark.

Hubby saw this is the freezer cabinet, and being meringue with a toffee mousse centre and toffee sauce/scrolls, it appeared to be better for me that the black forest gateaux alongside it, so it hitched a lift home.

To show willing in helping me, Hubby offered to serve it up.
This is his idea of His and Hers.

half-nowwith the intention of having the other half later.

Well, we did, have it later that is, by about ten minutes (well it was mostly meringue underneath) and so I have been walking faster and longer round the Avenue to compensate!

You may remember this from MOH’s visit last August. Sort of the same principle.

Here are a few other goodies from the boat kitchen this week.

Speed veg for the week has been broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, mushrooms, cucumber and tomatoes.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  1. Your plates look so beautiful. Can’t say that I do it that well.
