Hissy fit

It was just a cream sauce I know, but when you have made a perfect roux, bought it lovingly up to the boil, stirring all the time until you add two egg yolks at the end-and the husband is those vital minutes late and all you're left with is a curdled mess.  The husband did salvage the situation by giving a good beating to the sauce in the Kitchen Aid.  It was still not as glossy and smooth as it was in it's earlier stage.  I served this with ED turnips and ham, red kale and pasta for the kids.  Quite a nice dinner.
I made Nigella Lawson's Coca Cola cake today for the expectant Sister in Law who's birthday it was.  A delicious cake that should be made with a warning, do not feed to children, unless you like your children bouncing of the walls until bedtime.
I managed to get the same Sister in Law an amazing birthday present.  After trawling the internet for a suitable nursing nightie I found a perfect nursing negligee in Knickerbockers in Nailsworth by an amazing maternity company called Hot Milk.
Next up is our Niece who is turning 5 at the weekend. I got the perfect fabric in Stroud so now it is time to hit the sewing machine.
