Small loaves and 3 freebie tins
I mixed up the dough last night and made a small, freeform loaf for lunchtime. I had made some soup with the gammon juices, so I had a slice, buttered, with that. It was delicious, and I’ve made a diary note of when I put the dough in the fridge, so I know when I need to top it up if I haven’t used any in the meantime!
When I went to the U3A book group on Thursday, the convener asked if I used condensed milk, yes, I said. She then proceeded to give me 3 cans! They are well out of date, but I don’t care much about things like that.
I use it for a proper Bircher muesli, the condensed milk makes it go all thick and syrupy, it’s lovely. I use the Rose Elliot recipe, I’ll dig it out for you.
I wondered what else I could use this little windfall for, so I had a little Google, as you do. I looked it up on the Nestle site. For Tin One, I am thinking of this Raspberry Cheesecake using some fruit I have stashed in the freezer.
For Tin Two, I thought an ice cream, either this Sozzled Fruit Ice Cream,
Or this Caramel Parfait,
Or maybe even, Banana, Fudge and Cinnamon Ice Cream.
And for Tin Three? These Millionaires Shortbreads are calling my name
Dangerous game tho, as I really shouldn’t have any chocolate. Plus they are hardly calorie free
Like the pictures? Wish my foodie shots were as nice as these
Take care of your family and your budget
