Sometimes, I really don’t know why I bother.
You see, we’ve been invited out for dinner with friends tonight. Which I’m very, terribly excited about, because with all the greatness of being married to a Chef – just ask anyone who isn’t married to one how fabulous it is! – we are very rarely invited to anyone’s house for dinner, because no one wants to cook for a chef.
And with the invite, I/we were asked to bring dessert. My forte, and something I love to do. Except that The Chef always gets the credit. He even got the credit for the Cheezel Cake. Despite the fact he is not a pastry chef, and reguarly tells me so. Fortunately, these friends know better and he was unlikely to get the credit for it.
I decided to try out a new Chocolate Self Saucing Pudding recipe we discovered. Now, a maker of CSSP for quite some time now, usually referring to a recipe I’ve used for quite some time now, but haven’t done for ages because Monkey Boy doesn’t like it (weird child), attempting a new recipe was no big deal. And it looked scrumptious. And relatively easy.
It did call for ramekins for individual serves of the pudding. We don’t own any of those, because we had a set of six sititng, unopened and therefore unused,
