Our friends Candace and Dan were away, so (Maaike) had offered to dog-sit their dog Tabasco. Very much her initiative – but it was almost like a mini holiday – a change is as good as a rest!
They also have chickens who had just started laying again after winter (who knew they stopped for winter?! I didn’t anyway!). Those eggs got turned into chocolate mousse:
4 eggs 200g Dark Chocolate Coffee/Rum essence ------------- Separate Eggs Beat Egg whites until firm melt chocolate beat egg yolks with essence slowly add choc as you beat essence-> until all choc is added give egg white another whisk gently fold in egg white to mixture - keep air - use whisk. place in fridge overnight.
Then this weekend we headed to Arthurs pass for Paul Thompsons 40th. It was a lovely weekend, amazing the amount of kids & babies that have popped up in the last couple of years – definitely different sorts of parties – a 40th vs a 30th!
Did get away to Temple Basin for the Sunday… had excellent conditions again, 10cm of fresh and just a perfect day. It does take extra effort to get to Temple, but that effort is well rewarded!No comments yet.. click here to add the first one.
