Z is kissed!!(!)

I made a pudding. As I told the Sage, his face lit up with happiness. He approached. I was thoroughly kissed.

I wouldn't want to be taken for granted, so he doesn't get rhubarb crumble and custard every week. Sometimes, therefore, he is obliged to kiss me anyway. But when I've made a pudding, he actually wants to.

Did he make your Rhubarb Crumble Z?

Z said...

I'd say he made my custard cream, but that sounds strangely vulgar, so maybe I'll just smile demurely.

Z said...

Oh, and welcome, Rog. Lovely to see you.

Are you sure it wasn't four and twenty blackbirds?

Z said...

Not even a single wren.

Rhubarb crumble and custard? That's a new one on me. But, hey, if it gets the cook a kiss, I'm willing to bake it. Good on ya.

It takes peach pie to have that effect here.

An egg custard and hubby will do anything I ask!!

Welcome, Betty. I don't suppose you have rhubarb in Arizona. It is a vegetable eaten as a fruit, thick edible stalks that are cooked with sugar and made into a pie or crumble (a crumble topping is like pastry without liquid added so that it doesn't hold together but is simply sprinkled in a thick layer on the fruit) and baked. Or can be eaten stewed, as a fool or whatever. It's quite sour and usually can't be eaten without sugar.

D'you know, I've never eaten peach pie. I poach peaches though. Yummy. And LOM, so would I.

I'm not really here, so couldn't possibly comment. Back tomorrow.

Z said...

Nice one, Pat. And yes, John -have I not the right attitude to life?

Welcome back, Dave, in anticipation.

I do like a good sprinkle of brown sugar on the top of a crumble, with the oven cranked up for the last 15 minutes or so to caramelise it as the fruit bubbles up around the edges and they meld together...

Z said...

Mm, a bit of food porn there, Ad, in the best possible way.

Rhubarb is often combined with strawberries in a pie in the US. Some cut it up and cook it with sugar. We grew it when I was young and once I made the mistake of tasting a raw stalk. Once!

Z said...

A bit tart, isn't it? At least you didn't make the same mistake as a friend, as a little girl, who ate the leaf and ended up in hospital.
