Hello peeps, how is your Sunday? Ours has been pretty non-eventful, for which I am truly grateful. Yesterday, we should have been heading for a BBQ to celebrate Toad's mate's 50th birthday but we were both so tired after a manic work week that neither of us could face a three hour drive for a sausage. I did tell Toad that if it was the BBQ he wanted, I could burn him a burger for his tea.
Instead of that, I made my first ever Tarte Tatin! I don't "do" apples so I used peaches for this one.
And with a good old fashioned dollop of double-cream - I thought I'd gone to heaven! Can't tell you how relieved I was when it came out of the pan in one piece with no burnt caramel to be seen, I had visions of going into town this week looking for a new one.
And the rugby player? Here he is:

And to finish, here is a close up of that young man, complete with bruised shin, filthy shorts and golden Gavin Henson boots
