I love corn
That looks so good
like summer on a plate

Corn is the first food i really remember loving
i even had a corn teething rattle thing
i remember one year mum and dad blanched and frooze lots of fresh corn - i think every cob has a tiny little bite out of it :mrgreen2:

When i was a kid mum would cut the corn from the cob and leave them kinda still joined together and call them caterpillars

Right now im finishing a jar of peanut butter with a teaspoon.
Oooh did someone say corn on the cob? :lickout:

Confession time...I’m a terrible baker! The last thing I baked were ginger cookies, and I completely misread the recipe and used twice the butter that the recipe called for. My friend and I were so confused when our dough just wouldn’t come together.
I love it! One time in college I was so proud of myself to make chocolate pies. I doubled the recipe but somehow double double the butter. I was like why are the centers still jiggly after cooking like 2 hours lol?! My bf then, now ex husband, was like hey this is delicious, he was a good sport and I think he meant it! I mean what college guy wouldn't want an extra buttery chocolate pie lol?!

Extra butter is a feature, not a flaw! :lol:

Six months latter but a day too eaely for midwinter we had my little Christmas pudding for breakfast yesterday
I had no idea how to serve fried Christmas pudding but we had some left over cream and my rhubarb raspberry orange compot and i cooked up some bacon

It had matured really lovelly, it held its shape when i took it out of the tin and sliced up like a million dollars

i had boiled them in fruit tins to make small puddings
the rum im the pudding smelled good browning in the butter in the pan
They looked like black pudding slices 20200619_102813.jpg

I still have 3 more in the back of the freezer
Gary was not all that keen and told me all about his English mum's version
But i thought it was tasty

We just had chocolate mug cake, i should have taken a picture of it cooking in the microwave ......

i use the recepie with the egg, up the flour slightly and split the recepie between two large coffee mugs otherwise you get cake all over the inside of the microwave
Rather than nutella I used up the end of my rasberry and rhubarb conserve and used whisky instead of vinilla and added chocolate chips

Again should have taken a picture but you gotta eat it instantly or yum turns to chocolatly rubber !

Gary said he could have done with more cream

I actually brought my teens in to see this deliciousness and was trying to talk it up so we can try something similar. They nodded and patronized me for three whole minutes and then looked at me and said, "We want tacos." :evil: Philistines! Vampire Philistines!

It’s called water spinach and I think only people from a certain geographical area knows what it is.
