Late again

Sorry about this. I'm very late again with Saturday Pudding. It has not been a calm weekend at the Stash Basket. Stress levels have once again hit record heights. Won't bore you with the details, let's just get straight down to business. Food.

This was my diet pudding. Baked apple with home made mincemeat (have you made yours yet?) and natural yoghurt. It was very nice - could have done without the yoghurt and had custard instead, but hey, what's a diet for but to wish for something far more delicious?

And this is what the rest of the family had for pudding. Chocolate sponge in a chocolate sauce with chocolate ice cream. I wouldn't like this. No way. Chocolate? Sponge? Ice cream? All the things in life which I don't like. Couldn't have eaten this at all. Hot, steamy chocolatey, syrupy. Bleurgh.

Liar, liar, pants on fire.

Actually, I think your apple looks yummy. Must bake some soon.

Nah! I wouldn't have wanted that chocolatey stuff either!

P.S. If next weekend starts getting stressy then you know where to run.....

You just reminded me of my Mom making baked apples for us when we were kids. Have I mentioned that my Mom was no Cordon Bleu chef and that baking was not one of her strong points? Baked apples = not a good "pudding night" in our house!

Hope things settle a bit soon.

Both puddings looked great! 'Tis the season for warming puddings - we had jam roly poly with custard this evening.

Thank you for linking to your fab mincemeat recipe - was going to go on a hunt for it sometime soon!

I have tried for some time to figure out what mincemeat is not very common around here...but it sounds rather good!

Would actually have chosen that apple instead of all that chocolate(and I'm not even lying!!!)
