Yum, dinner!

I could eat gnocchi every night (with a different sauce each time) so I've been trying to cook it myself. I knew getting them just spot on, the perfect fluffiness with doughy goodness, might be tough; and my first try proved me right! Silly me didn't read the recipe properly and they were a sticky (but tasty) mess.
This time I've almost cracked it, by jove! :D Apart from being a bit big, they tasted yummy.

A couple of weeks ago we tried out a lemon curd recipe, and I'm boggling my brain to figure out what to do with a litre of the stuff! So for dessert we made lemon curd muffins. :D
We used a basic muffin recipe, left out the pecans and blueberries and added lemon zest to the mix. We layered the muffin mixture with a big glob of lemon curd in each of the paper cases.
Then fingers crossed!
It worked! Muffins with a gooey, lemony centre!
The house was very quiet whilst we tested them.

That is the end of the long story of dinner. Take care and happy munching!

p.s. Thank you to my parents for giving me all of Delia's 'How to cook' books :D

p.p.s Oh my gosh, colour photos! They looked odd in b&w, sadly. I guess for quick, very hungry photos these will do ;)

Your photos may not be b/w but they still have your muted tone to them so don't worry!
