Hi , every one I hope you are all well and have had a good day ,I have, though not sure doing what ! Have you noticed with house work ,you only see it when it needs doing ,no one see's what you've done ,when its done ,am I making sense ?
I think I baffled alot of our American friends, when I told you last evening we were having Toad in the Hole for dinner !
there you are can you see it ? it is sausages cooked in a batter ,I cook my sausage in a dish similar to this one on moderate heat in some oil ,when they are cooked abit ! I,turn up the oven to hot ,(pour off some of the fat as the sausage usually make more)and pour over the batter mix ,I like to hear the sort if fizz sound as the batter hits the fat ? The batter mix is a couple of tablespoons of plain flour an egg ,enough milk to make a thick cream substance ,then a splash of water ,(its the addition of the water that makes it rise ,the oil and water theory)I know what I mean, I hope you are following me ,Delia, I am not ! You beat the batter to get the air into the mix,my dear Mother in law ,(who made Yorkshire pudding to die for) used to say, beat it till it trots ,making a noise like a horse trotting ,Yorkshire pudding is minus the sausage and eaten with roast beef ,Sorry I cant be more precise I dont measure ,I can tell by looking if its right , as all the cooks amongst us will understand....
I came out of the cul-de-sac where we live and on to the road, that I take to go to the shop at the end ,to get my paper this afternoon ,I noticed the curtains were closed in many of the houses I passed by ,I then saw two men out side a house ,in dark suits and wearingwhit shirts with ties ,so I guessed there was to be a funeral ,of someone in the street ,and that was why the curtains were closed ,I was pleased to see this old fashioned tribute to a deceased neighbour ,was still observed ,its nice to know some traditions are still being kept .
Well since Maurice is working tonight I am now ,going to make my self something to eat, then curl up with my knitting and the tele .Have a lovely restful night every one
