sunday lunch x

sunday lunch was always my favourite meal of the week.....a time to sit down with the whole family, oh, and there was roast potatoes and pudding, proper puddings, like fruit pies & crumbles, lemon meringues & cheesecake....i think i was about 12 or 13 when i started making the puddings for my mum, and even now i enjoy cake & pudding baking

i've just had a lovely sunday lunch with my mum & dad, a chance for a lovely chat & catch up on our weeks news
pudding didn't look quite like this, but i couldn't resist posting this from the lovely cannelle et vanille blog, which is just scrumptious! this is going on the menu for next sunday......x

100g sugar
