I had bread and butter pudding for only about the third time on Saturday. It were gorgeous. They'd used maramalade somehow, it was lush as heck.

I've never dared go anywhere near that since I was at school. I expect the stuff you might make yourself or get in a restaurant is quite nice, but the stuff they used to serve for school dinners wasn't.

apart from sliced bread you can also make bread and butter pudding with hot cross buns or (if you're aiming to impress a lady) a sweet brioche... you can make it with the cheapest of ingredients or go all posh

you can also stick fresh green figs in there (that's a jamie oliver touch, I do believe) and I'm not pimping my big sister but she makes a hard to beat chocolate bread and butter pudding

my special physique is largely attributed to bread and butter pudding... in all it's guises

re; pudding, I might make one when I'm at chez knibbles, if I can get off my arse and they don't mind... I know you like figs and hot cross buns and bread and butter pudding BUT do you like burnt figs and burnt hot cross buns and burnt bread and butter pudding?

if you do, then you'll be in for a treat

i've always gone for "keen-waa" becuase i think i read it somewhere once.

although the stuff is essentiall VERY PLAIN i still find it fasciating, probably more to do with it's importance to the meso-american peoples. and that it changes shape when you cook it!

I usually say "kee-know-ahh"

Anyway, thanks for the receipe, will definitely try it. I hadn't thought about making sweet quinoa either! That's a good idea!

can you bring one of those to indietracks, please? or, alternatively, can you come visit me RIGHT NOW and make me one?

I say kee-no-uh.

Look at me! I'm up early, having a healthy bowl of cereal, and pronouncing things correctly!

This is quite a good start to my week.

This weekend I tried 4 types of carbs in one meal. Not my choice you understand. I have had a tour of some parts of the north this weekend - Scarborough Friday and Saturday and York on Sunday. On Saturday night my boyfriend and I decided to go for a nice meal. Our restaurant of choice was fully booked so we ended up at this other one. I chose the muscles as I wanted something light and was asked if I would like some seasonal vegetables with it and I said “yes”. It was then served with lots of new potatoes, mash, dauphinoise potatoes and lots of bread and butter! As you would really need bread after all that. As much as I like a spud I would not recommend trying to eat as many types possible in one meal!

From Bruscles?

Sorry...

That does sound like a carb overload, though I know that if I had that I'd totally be having mash and new potatoes in one forkful.

I love it. Sea Asparagus as it is also known. Steam it for a few mins, and have it with steamed salmon + butter, or mayo, or aioli. Yum.

Delicious. Wish it was at Indietracks and not at my desk though.

Add some Cornish new potatoes and this would be food heaven. I love samphire!

A couple of weeks ago I tried Black Cow Vodka. It's vodka distilled from milk. It tastes and looks nothing like milk (thank god - urgh!) Really smooth. Flippin' lovely!
totally wicked and equally ace
