Sunday - Sugar is a Drug

As part of Mr K-E's family weekend, his family came round for lunch today and we had a simple buffet style meal. After all the red wine on Saturday night I couldn't do anything more strenuous than switching on the oven and opening packets. Just in case you are interested, we had
  • ham
  • pizza
  • green salad
  • coleslaw
  • potato salad
  • cherry tomatoes
  • samosas (chicken, lamb and beef) with raita
Mr K-E's mother made a yummy dessert from meringues, cream, strawberries and dulce de leche. Dulce de leche is a delicious toffee caramel sauce; it tastes lovely with pancakes. I should have taken a photo of the dessert before we demolished it, but it tastes much better than it looks anyway.

We also had brownies with hazelnuts (freshly baked by Mr K-E's sister, C) and some Somerset fudge. You can see extra dulce de leche in a bowl in the background. (Mr K-E's family love sweets and puddings.)

C has just some back from a holiday in Italy, so they gave us some Italian chocolate florentines, pasta and sweeties. Sugar addiction is terrible, I tell you.

We also had some serious family business to do; signing legal documents after lunch. Today's lesson learnt is: white wine + legal documents = bad signatures. :D
