We have been invited out to Angie and Bill's house tonight (hello Angie and Bill!). They live over the road from us and are quite OK sort of people really. They look after our children sometimes and let them play with their dog. They let mum collect greenery for her flower arranging duties in church. Angie even knits. Yes, quite OK they are!
Anyway, they knew what they were doing inviting us on a Saturday, as they read this blog. When I asked them what I could bring round, the answer was 'Saturday Pudding of course!'
Whilst listening to the radio yesterday, all the talk was about Rhubarb Meringue Pie. I liked the sound of that so decided to give it a try. Instructions here. I've not tasted the whole thing yet, but when I licked out the bowl, I was very impressed! I have a feeling that the pastry will go soggy (despite coating it with egg before baking) but you can't have everything can you?
And because there is no way my children would eat rhubarb, strange creatures that they are, here is what I've made for them. Plain and simple Chocolate Mousse.
Who are you cheering for on Britain's Got Talent then? I'm shouting for Flawless (I can dance like that you know, just that I don't choose to!) but I doubt they'll get past the media hype that's Susan Boyle.
