Hello again - about GW. I felt that the last few episodes have been a bit light weight. Was MD clearing leaves by hand to demonstrate  how  those with less land can clear them. Sorry can't comment on rest - went to sleep. Will catch up on iplayer

Not the one I was thinking of but an idea

My family would probably opt for Delia's chocolate bread and butter pudding. Takes days, is very extravagant, and tastes divine - mousse-like.

You can pep up a choco steam pudding with brandy, and add cinnamon it would give a hint of the flavour. Trying to think - I have seen a recipe but where.

Tonight we are having veal and parmesan (sorry veggies) meat balls from Waitrose (thought we would give them  try) with a Hairy Biker Baked bean recipe. Nothing like what you get in a tin, really tasty. 

To follow melon I think with a blueberry compote

My daughter lived in Spain for a fewmonths. Found the ex-pats very helpful especially when she had a medical problem. Did text me once asking what to do about jelly fish stings. Me noe a clue, directed her to pharmacy 

Just had a thought wedding receptions often have fireworks now and it is November. We'll have to grin and bear it, It's explaining them to Oscar (dog) that is the problem
