Continuing with getting back into some kind of semblance of a routine, and today being Friday, it was Weekly Shop Day. It was a little tiring towards the end, but I got it done, all to plan. Whilst looking for the Birds Dream Topping (another little story) I was completely blown out of the water by what I saw on the shelf - Libby's Pumpkin! I hope solid means puree, only opening it will let me know. I was stunned! Have Tesco been listening to my thougths and moans? I am seriously thinking of emailing them and thanking them for stocking it. There wasn't many tins left on the shelf and I was sorely tempted to get them all, to stock up in case they don't get any more. Even the recipe on the back is in English English - weights and measures in imperial and metric. Ah, how the little things in life make me happy. I am however going to be thoughtfully pre-occupied in getting my hands on some more tins. HK has already put in a very strong request for Pumpkin Pie and a Quiche in the next few days, if I don't mind, thank you! Double Happiness.
Birds Dream Topping -
I treated myself to this cake tin (and I am chuffed with myself as I have never put a picure on here that is not one of my own photos, wooo!), as a bit of a Get Better Me treat. The recipes are, naturally in American English. This no longer daunts me, saying that I did need some help with Transatlantic translation for a couple of things. One was frozen whipped desert. The nearest thing to this over here is Birds Dream Topping. Alternatively I have been advised that I could use double/whipped cream with sugar to get the right consistency. It is to go in the middle of the cake, for the heart filling. One good thing leads to another. If I wasn't looking for the dream topping, I wouldn't have found the Pumpkin.
The tin is from Wiltonby the way. I'm getting quite a liking for their cake tins, as you know!
