Another day off- yippee again!!!
Lunch was our usual picnic of soup and cheeses. Today’s soup was Duchy Tomato, Thyme and Pepper and was surprisingly good- tasting like the best of homemade soups. The Belvoir Elderflower Presse was a good drink although a little sweet. It needs to be very chilled.
Last weekend I was going to make Colin a cheesecake but we were both too full so I didn’t! However all the ingredients were still in the fridge and about to die so I set to work on it today. Individual little cheesecakes- quite a thick crunchy base, creamy cheesecake layer, topped with a mango and lime puree and blueberries. The cheesecake was ok but Colin was not too keen on the topping. I think the lime made it a bit bitter/sour when I was looking for a velvety sweetness of mango. All learning’s for next time. Here they are though looking groovy…
Dinner was a spaghetti- nothing unusual and a weekly occurrence! But here’s a pic anyway!
Today was another DVD day- Tim Burton’s Frankenweenie. Back to work tomorrow for a busy Easter week- let’s hope I have enough Easter Eggs in for the hungry Horshamers!
