Chloe Likes To Eat

I'm currently using an Android phone (HTC Wildfire, for the record it's great... when it works. Hopelessly unreliable unfortunately) and although I love the camera, I really don't love that Instagram is only available for iPhones. So when the lovely Sarah recommended Molome, I was overjoyed particularly as it's also free. An Android version of everyone's favourite photosharing app (Molome is also available for Nokia and BlackBerry)! If you want to follow me, you'll find me as chloelikes2talk. Consequently, most of the pictures I'm taking at the moment are via Molome and this weeks Chloe Likes To Eat is no exception...

Lemon Bakewell Tart, Vanilla Ice Cream, Blueberry Coulis


My dad had a pudding fit this weekend and made this YUMMY tart, bakewell but with (homemade) Lemon Marmalade in it. Served after a naughty but nice Steak on Saturday night, and thoroughly enjoyed!

The recipe came from the Good Food magazine that my parents have a subscription for, but you can find it online HERE, I would say it needs more lemon... but then they don't say I'm acidic for nothing...

Although this is a Chloe Likes To Eat, I couldn't let the post go by without thanking everyone who commented on my last post, Is It Coz I Is...small?. I was expecting it to go down like a lead balloon, but it's been fantastic to see the various responses and to hear that so many of you understood where I was coming from.

Oh... today is also Valentines Day. I'm not a big subscriber, but I don't really mind it either. T is away and I'm at work, so we're not doing anything special. I did read some interesting things about St Valentines Day though....

Did you know that there are lots of Saint Valentines? They don't know very much about the Valentine whose feast day is February 14th... pretty much where we he is buried and when he died...

The first link with a Saint Valentine and romance is actually from a poem by Chaucer in the 14th century although it's debated whether he actually meant the Valentine who is celebrated in February due to the context... and it's only in the 19th century that it became a tradition to give flowers and confectionery on February 14th.

Really? I feel your pain, I'm a citrus addict! Could try it with different fruits though?

Sorry.... Although it is super easy to make apparently- it kind of has to be, Master Chef or not, my dad is not great with his desserts...
