With Mum & Dad here, every time I walk past a baker’s I pop in & get a couple of sticks of bread for us all to have lunch. Thinking the same as me, Mum & Dad have done the same. As a result we now have a glut of bread. So as I never like anything to go to waste, Mum & I came up with a few recipes
“Did you make it with soya butter?” I asked Mum.
“Oh spit!” She replied. “I forgot all about it. I remembered the soya milk but didn’t think about the butter. Oh I am sorry.”
“Don’t worry, I’ll make another one.” I said.
And so I set about making one for myself.
“You didn’t put any raisins in your?” I asked.
“No, I’m not keen on raisins. I put dates in instead.” Mum said.
“Ooh, that’s a good idea.” I said depiping some dates & chopping them up. “Might be nice with some walnuts too.” I continued crushing a handful & adding them to the raisins & dates. “Do you want some?”
“Oh no, not me dear. I’m very traditional.” She replied with a smile.
The first night both puddings were presented after dinner & Zephy was given the choice of which one he wanted. He chose my Mum’s.
Not one to be deterred easily, I served him up a little portion & gave it to him while we read books the night after.
He picked out all the shards of walnut & poked them in my mouth as I read.
I guess he’s traditional too.
