One of the many pleasures of having time off work, is having time to experiment in the kitchen with new recipes. For some time now, I have wanted to make the recipe I had found for Rocky Road Cheesecake. ( made with an Oreo biscuit base) Well, this afternoon I made it and it had hardly been in the fridge 5 minute when S.I.L came round and decided to be chief taster. Another dessert that will be appearing regularly in this household, as hubby also really enjoyed it too. Lemon and mustard seed pickle is marinating overnight ready to cook tomorrow. Yesterday afternoon, I decided on a whim, to go to Maldon to see the exhibition by Octopus. I had a lovely time admiring all their work and talking to Liz. On the way back to the car, I bumped into a friend I haven't seen for a couple of years but had to dash because parking time was nearly up, so another trip to Maldon is on the cards to meet up for lunch and a good old natter.
