We went to my cousin’s for dinner tonight. Plans were made a couple of weeks ago – Jackie would make dinner, I’d take dessert. A lemon and lime cheesecake was made, chilled, and decorated, then it was packed in an upside-down biscuit tin and a taxi was called. Imagine The Bloke’s terror when he picked up the tin, felt the cheesecake slide then watched in slo-mo as it fell sunny side down onto the coffee table. I have been told that other people would have yelled, but actually all I could do was gasp then laugh. These things have to be brought into perspective. No-one was hurt, The Bloke is not a man who would deliberately sabotage a dessert, and hey, I took photos first. Anyway, Tesco provided slices of emergency dairy-based confectionery and we have scrambled cheesecake for breakfast, lunch and dinner tomorrow. Good times!
For those interested, the recipe came from here.
