Fancy a dip?

Shakespeare wrote in Romeo and Juliet..."Tis an ill cook that cannot lick his own fingers." I just took a look in the fridge at my lemon possets.

I thought I would just run a finger around the edge to try one. Then I couldn't stop myself. I dipped a finger straight in. Then there was no stopping me. I ate a whole one.

Luckily my dinner party guests won't notice as I made two extra....

Don't you hate it when you decide on a meal that means you won't have to cook like crazy. Then you're too organised and end up blogging twenty minutes before your guests arrive?

We're having smoked salmon blinis, steak with a blue cheese and pear salad, wedges and then lemon posset with spiced winter fruits (one short).

It feels very extravagent mid week....but hey...it's Christmas.


  1. I must say that the whole getting ready too early and having time to blog before people come over for dinner has NEVER happened to me. But maybe I'll make more of an effort if it also gives you time to snaffle a quick dessert before they arrive!
    That menu sounds just amazing - as Joy said, lucky, lucky guests!
