The girls love when I go to the trouble to make quiche & salad. It's probably our all~time favourite meal. Dearest tolerates it as being one of the quirks of being the lone male in an all female household [I'm not sure Issi counts!] so I do a side serve of chips for him. With our tomatoes in the salad mix it was taste sensation heaven!
Last night seeing that Ditz was feeling off~colour enough to pull out of her violin lesson I found I had plenty of time on my hands to organise tea & with Liddy still suffering from her weekend away decided an early tea was on the agenda. I short~cutted & did pre~packaged pastry, which is never as nice as the real thing, because I wanted the extra time to do a desert.
I had a great Pecan muffin recipe that I used to use regularly & it is an all~time favourite but when I went looking for it naturally it was no~where to be found. That tells you how long it's been since I last baked! I sent Ditz on~line but she couldn't turn up exactly what I wanted so I went with the best sounding one & *tweaked*.
My recipe requires a caramel sauce made with brown sugar & cream...Ooooh, la~la! Vanilla ice~cream. Oh, my! Even Ditz couldn't eat another crumb. It's at moments like this I miss the boys. We have left overs. Anyone like a muffin?
