Peanut Butter (Ice Cream) and Jelly

FT + Pumpkin Publog4 comments • 1,902 views

I had one of those Americans around for dinner last night. A very pleasant chap all told, as was his good lady wife. In an attempt to pander to the guests I decided upon a menu which would reflect all of the nationalities involved. So the menu was thus:
Roast Asparagus with Baked Camembert* (English and French representing the lovely female guests nationality)
Chorizo Stew with Drozi Potatoes (Spanish, which female guest also has roots, and Polish potatoes like me)
And for pudding
Peanut Butter Ice Cream and Jelly (US)


Night At The Museum: Kylie Comes Alive

kylie.jpgI went to the Lady Museum on Monday. Sorry, the V&A. My parents referred to it as the Lady Museum when, as a child, a trip to South Kensington would inevitably split between me and my Dad heading to the Science Museum and Mum and sister to the V&A. So whilst I have spent quite a lot of time in their archives (Theatre Museum archives, which is all part of the V&A) it had been over twenty years since I had been in the Victoria And Albert Fashion and Design museum. Ostensibly there to see the surrealism exhibit for free (YAY – Cheers Sarah), the fact that the rest was cordoned of made me itch to go back. Skirting the edge of the Cast Courts in an nearly empty museum was really inspiring. I went right home to try and find if I still had my Paddington Bear plaster cast set.
