Imagine the scene.
It’s the morning of Boxing Day. We overslept, and there is food to prepare. I don’t do panic! However, time really was running out and I couldn’t even remember what I was supposed to be preparing……
I’m not usually so vague, but it was the desserts that confused me. You see, I was planning on doing something different, so I’d brought some ingredients, but now, in my haste, I couldn’t remember which was for what! No recipe, it was all ‘in my head’, and that was the saving grace, because no-one expected anything specific.
Cherries were prepared, biscuits crushed, oranges peeled, oatmeal mixed with this and that. Chocolate was melted, sugar added in suitable proportions (just a very little), a few more ingredients whisked and chopped and hey presto, two new dishes made their appearance.
Fortunately all was well. They tasted good, but……
Just as the first guest put a spoonful into their mouth I remembered what I was actually going to do! Guess what – I’ve written down the old new and the new new recipes, so I won’t be making the same mistake again. I did forget one thing, though, and that was to take any photographs. Who knows when I’ll make them again, we aren’t really a dessert family, however, I’ll make a point of taking a picture, and then I’ll share the recipe with you.
(But please don’t hold your breath because it won’t be this week!)
