That is quite a portfolio you've got going on there...
^ It may look a bit gross, but it's butterscotch and it's delicious. Made it yesterday in an experimental mood. And it was surprisingly easy, although it looks absolutely nothing like the photos of it in the magazine where it's all caramel-coloured, sleek and perfectly sliced. Cutting this stuff up was a pain. It's either not solid enough or too solid and grabs the knife as if it wants to wrestle it from you.
Anyway. Very easy. Although I had the fire extinguisher next to me all the time just in case. Can't be too careful... And with the way the mixture bubbles up, you can use the fire extinguisher to beat it back into submission.
In totally unrelated thoughts, I bought new shoes on Friday!
I just went down to get a new hand mixer (the old one that was around 30 years old broke last weekend after making that cake - it was probably too much for it - and it made me inexplicably sad). But then I saw these shoes and another pair, which my ankle protests about. They came home with me as well, though.
The broken leg thing has curbed the shoe buying to a degree, but hasn't stopped it totally. Have to book back into the physio, actually. I'm missing wearing heels and he can help me get back into them. It's important to have goals/priorities.
But red shoes! Red shoes with a ribbon! Hurrah.
