Sunday: A busy afternoon

Sunday afternoon tea: Lemon Tarts
Like everyone else on Taste, my filling didn't set particularly well (even with the addition of gelatine, although I skipped the recommended cornsflour stage so that might account for it!) but these were a yummy treat for almost no effort. Only slightly tart -- might add a wee bit of zest next time -- but lovely and light. I had some nice fresh strawberries left over from last night so topped with those rather than frozen raspberries.

Dinner: Dal and pumpkin soup
Nigel Slater, The Kitchen Diaries pg 7
This is sitting, waiting for the boy to finish his shower, so final taste will tell but on checking for seasoning WOW this soup packed a punch! The colour of baby vomit but no one could accuse it of lacking flavour.

Also now simmering away in the oven is Lamb stew (Nigel, pg 10) which will hopefully prove a delicious - and easy! - supper tomorrow night.

Soundtrack: The AFL... All afternoon
Watching: Also the AFL. But not by choice.
