Went to Saturday morning flicks today to see Pride, laughed and sniffled my way through the film. Solid cast, great entertainment with a serious message. If you get the chance to go, please do. You will not regret it. Imelda Staunton and Bill Nighy making sandwiches, a joy to watch.
Trial run of Bill Granger's chocolate and raspberry tart for the bake club. Because no one else in the house eats cake, I am now completely sick of it. How those contestants on GBBO keep their cool under the glare of the TV camera and Mr Hollywood, never mind the time pressure I will never know. Also the cost of ingredients to practice recipes at home must be phenomenal. I had most of the component parts for this recipe in the cupboards but still spent just under £10 for the extras albeit I will be making two. I managed to not set the timer once, at least there was no danger of a soggy bottom, and the raspberries were slightly burnt. When I mentioned this I was told I gave sage advice to the GBBO contestants when this occurred the week before. I can even answer a University Challenge question or two and you would think I had won the trophy for that year. How wise we are when we are sitting on our sofa.
