Ministry of Mushy Peas
Dessert: Trio of summer treats…
Pink panther cupcakes
Luscious Lemon roulade
Yorkshire Raspberry Ripper ice-cream
|Union Jack flowers|
|Parsnip Crisps - a real success|
|Homemade pumpkin bread was my fav|
|Minty mushy peas and tartlets|
|Romford's own ratatoille|
|Fruity pork steaks|
|One of the trio of deserts - Pink Lemonade cupcakes|
We don't know the outcome yet as everyone scored us for each course, but the scores will only be revealed on the last one in August. We are definately going to carry it on next year as it's really good to have an opportunity to try out some new recipes and it's a real feast to look forward to for foodies like us.
The parsnip crisps are a bit faffy as you have to cook them in batches, but they are so tasty and a lot cheaper than the ones you buy in shops.
I notice I have lost a follower and feel this may be related to the lack of scrap stuff recently - life has really just taken over and I keep thinking of all the pretty stash I will get in California and the great pics I will have to scrap - watch this space!!!
