Today is a wet and dreary Bank Holiday Sunday! It is very cold and damp!
I make Bread and Butter Pudding with Apple.
Slices of Bread spread with butter
Apples (can be eating or cooking or combination of both) Peeled and Sliced
Put couple of slices of buttered bread into the bottom of a heat proof dish. *Sprinkle with a handful of Raisins, few slices of Apples and a desert spoonful of Sugar cover with slices of Bread* and repeat from * to * once more.
Break three Eggs into a measuring jug and beat, the pour in Milk to the 1Pint level (1/2 litre) then beat together and pour over Bread etc. Sprinkle with Sugar and wait for about half hour minimum.
Then put into the oven for about one hour on 180 degrees gas 4

We called in at Tescos as we left an filled the car with petrol and bought sandwiches for a picnic lunch on the way. I was hungry so I had to eat and try and ignore the pain!
Apart from another stop at the services for a cuppa about three and more paracetamols, we arrived here for the night, hot and tired. But after a good meal and a good night's sleep and the toothache ceasing I felt a lot better.
When it was ended at then end of the day we re-packed our car and went to see our friends Ken and Jenny whom we were going to stay with for a couple of nights.

This is my version of "Tiffin"! (There are lots of versions!) The word "Tiffin" means a light meal or snack. The word is Anglo Indian.
1lb 4ozs - 600 grms of Chocolate
(I used 14ozs - 400grms of milk and 6ozs - 200grms of plain)
6 ozs - 175 grms broken Plain Biscuits (I used Rich Tea) broken into not too big pieces
1 ozs - 25 grms Rice Krispies
4 ozs - 110 grms Dried Apricots chopped small
2 ozs - 50 grms Glace Cherries
2 ozs -50 grms Chopped Nuts (I used Pecans) chopped small
2 ozs - 50 grms Raisins
Bowl which will sit comfortably in the saucepan without sitting on the bottom of the saucepan
8" - 20cm Square Cake Tin lined with clingfilm
Put water in the saucepan and place bowl on top. DO NOT allow the water to get into the bowl otherwise it will spoil the chocolate mix.
Break all the chocolate into the bowl and allow it to melt slowly over a low heat. When melted add all other ingredients and mix well so everything is covered in chocolate.
Turn off the heat and carefully pour chocolate mix into the prepared tin and put into the fridge till cold.
