Darlings how was le weekend? What
with the tennis and the fete we were completely exhausted .
It seems to be getting bigger and bigger ( as do I) next year one shall have parasols and a white picket fence. Naturally.
We were blessed with fabulous weather and our takings were up on last year so the Church will be happy.
My husband with another blonde.
Talking of blondes, at a party one was in some photos taken on the night. Apparently it has been said that there is a passing resemblance between Diana Dors et moi??? Really? I can’t see it myself.
Probably in the 80s. Cripes!
One can’t exist on fluids alone.
Something to eat with a spoon.
MAKES 4-6 GLASSES
100g (3½oz) caster sugar
100ml (3½fl oz) water
Juice of ½ lemon
5 gelatine leaves
200ml (7fl oz) Pimm’s
300ml (½pt) lemonade
¼ cucumber, thinly sliced
12 mint leaves
Selection of fruits, to garnish (orange, redcurrants, etc)
Put the sugar, water and lemon juice into a saucepan and heat gently until dissolved. Simmer for 5 minutes.
Place the gelatine in a shallow bowl, cover with water and soak for 4 minutes. Squeeze out the excess water, then add the gelatine to the pan to dissolve.
Cool, then add the Pimm’s and lemonade. Cool at room temperature.
Place a strawberry in each glass and add just enough jelly so the strawberry remains in the bottom. Set in the fridge. Add the remaining jelly and a few slices of cucumber and mint leaves. Return to the fridge for 2-3 hours.
Serve with a wedge of orange or a few redcurrants.
