Join us for dinner………………

Chicken curry for dinner today, nothing fancy, and I’ve modified my recipe a little by not adding any sugar to my sauce and letting the sultanas provide the sweetness.
Plain boiled rice, with a sprinkle of desiccated coconut on the top, served with garlic bread as I had no poppadoms today.

This is my cheesecake, again a slightly modified recipe by using Elmlee instead ofΒ  full double cream in the hope of making it less rich so that Hubby could enjoy some. This time, I used chocolate covered nougat for my decoration, but even this is a little cheat as it is chocolate flavoured coating, not proper chocolate, something we had already ascertained doesn’t upset Hubby’s digestion. So far, so good and he’s still smiling.


I am sending a slice by proxy for those who wish to try:

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.

    Well it’s good you let the sultanas do the sweetness, because you do have that cheesecake.
    Thank you for the cheesecake. I will leave you the nougat though. Hope you don’t mind.
    Glad your husband is able to have some. Second helpings can’t be bad. He’s making up for lost time I bet.

  6. This looks delicious, Di.

    • It was all rather good and Hubby had seconds of dessert…… a tad too much confidence now, but at least we know he CAN have some cheesecake in certain circumstances! Hurrah!!
