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.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.

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