Well done Miss Angels.

Toad in the hole turned out to be toad on the plateau. Only managed to get Yorkshires to rise all fluffy once in my life. Will buy Aunty Bessies next time.

Enjoyed some cod and chips from the only chippy on island, very good they were too. Finished off with some home grown melon from the greenhouse.

Puffin cams should be up and working now FSL.

Original Nanaimo Bars Recipe
From Nanaimo BC, Vancouver Island, Canada

Ingredients for Bottom Layer:
1/2 cup unsalted butter (European style cultured)
1/4 cup sugar
5 tablespoons cocoa
1 egg beaten
1-1/4 cups graham wafer crumbs
1/2 cup finely chopped almonds
1 cup coconut

Directions for Bottom Layer:
Melt first three ingredients in top of double boiler. Add egg and stir to cook and thicken. Remove from heat. Stir in crumbs, coconut, and nuts. Press firmly into an ungreased 8″ x 8″ pan.
Ingredients for Second Layer:
1/2 cup unsalted butter
2 tablespoons and 2 teaspoons cream
2 tablespoons vanilla custard powder (Bird’s works great)
2 cups icing sugar

Directions for Second Layer:
Cream butter, cream, custard powder, and icing sugar together well. Beat until light. Spread over bottom layer.
Ingredients for Third Layer:
4 squares semi-sweet chocolate (1 oz. each)
2 tablespoons unsalted butter

Directions for Third Layer:
Melt chocolate and butter over low heat. Cool. Once cool, but still liquid, pour over second layer and chill in refrigerator.
Cut with a warm knife and wipe it clean after each cut.
Hey, no baking!


Goes well with poutine with bacon - or anything.

Evening all,

Belated congrats to the Angels Team.

Been blowing good all day, somebody breathing a 35 degree wind. It abated just in time to not spoil dinner.
BBQ chicken fillets in pinchito marinade, Tomato and chickpea salad, Fig and feta salad, mixed leaves and new potatoes, with a gazpacho and bits starter.
Seemed well received well there ain't much left

I feel that I am missing a vital task tomorrow apart from seeing what sort of mess the dykes have left, I will remember or not.

Yorks Pud needs a good heavy roasting pan, preferably heated on the top of the stove when you pour the batter in. Then into a stonkin hot oven, till it rises - then you can probably turn heat down.
But the heavier/thicker the pan the better.
(So my Yorkshire wife informs me. But whisper it quietly - she also buys Auntie Bessies, which are imho much inferior to hers when done properly.)

My late Mother (rest her sole) was an expert with Yorkshire puddings.
We always had individual Yorkshires as a separate course (with gravy) whenever we had beef for Sunday (lunchtime) dinner.

She would put a dollop of 'lard' into each tin (which varied in size from saucer-size to fairy-cake) and place the tins in the very hot oven until the fat melted and was smoking, then she would pour the batter into the tins. A puddle of hot fat would form in the middle of the batter and the mixture would rise up magnificently every time.
I never knew her to fail.

Foot trouble?


Or is this the start of another round of fish puns?

Sometimes one gets a warm feeling of security living on a ship as we do.
Given the amount of water that came down in the night today is one of those times.

Hearty congrats to the angelette. Well done that lass.

Time for a gentle waking up and breakfast and then it's get ourselves ready to go to the heavier-than-air machine port up the road. We are off to Hamsterjam to celebrate one of the friend's 60th birthday.
Dash 8 Q400 so I'm not too bothered what the weather dishes out at AMS as scraping wingtips on the runway is highly unlikely. I'm in row 12 so I can keep an eye on the whirly bits and make sure they keep running as well.
Back on Monday after we've ticked off all the museums on the list.

On this day in 1040 King Duncan of Scotland was murdered by Macbeth, who then became king and ruled for 17 years.
Good idea for a play there.

You are aware handsfree that those in rows 12 to 16 are expected to pedal should anything untoward happen.

In times of adversity I can pedal like the clappers.
Mrs HF says I'm pretty good at back pedalling as well.
