Picture Of The Day : Proof Of The Pudding

Whilst Harry (see previous post) is a splendid fellow, I have certain reservations about his wife. Regular readers will know that these reservations relate to her so-called home-made Yorkshire Puddings. We had a meeting of the Crosspool Cruise Club at the weekend and Elaine was at pains to show off her Yorkshire Pudding credentials (who wouldn't with me as a guest?). The puddings were passable and reasonably skillfully prepared. But clearly the preparation was to take them out of the Tesco packet and put them in the oven for ten minutes. Nice try Elaine, but the proof of the pudding is in the picture.

    Yesterday I had the distinct pleasure of being invited to Harry and Elaine's for lunch. Elaine put on an impressive spread that included among other tasty dishes roast potatoes, roast beef, gravy and of course yorkshire puddings, all homemade I hasten to add.
    Now I hear that there is quite a rivalry going on between my uncle Ali and Elaine involving who makes the best Yorkshire puddings. Uncle Ali has claimed that Elaine's are bought rather than homemade. Well Uncle Ali having tasted Elaine's delicious puddings I beg to differ.
    Elaine thank you once again for a wonderful lunch
