Lord Magnon is the cook of the family, and as he's pretty good at it I just let him get on with things. But there are certain recipes that he'll never attempt; amongst these is anything that involves PASTRY.
Yesterday (Sunday) I had a sudden desire for either a Kate and Sidney pie, or pudding. I put it to the vote, and we both plumped for pudding. I used a Guinness and wine mix for the liquid, and added some mushrooms; otherwise a standard recipe.
About 10 minutes after I took the 'finished' picture, there wasn't a lot left... It was delicious. I wonder when we'll eat another one?
I am Anglo-Swedish. When I was younger I lived in Moscow, Washington, and Caracas. For the past 40 years we have lived in S W France. I'm a lapsed artist (mostly watercolours), I love the outdoors, and am married to the infamous Cro. We have three grown-up children and four grandsons. Life is good; deep in the French countryside.
