Ol' 55 - no Frankie J Holden though!!

Last night I watched the Battlefield Britain series, episode 1. It was very good, next week it will be the Battle of Hastings. There are people on the Net pooh-poohing parts of the show, but on the whole it is good. I also finally found episode 1 of the Melvyn Bragg series The Adventure of English. The mystery of its whereabouts was solved when I realised I had two tapes labelled 55!!! Tonight is the last of Carnivale series 1, no part of which I have managed to watch yet!!!Today so far I have been woken up at 9 am by the Labradors, made them an interesting meal of left over pasta sauce, grated zucchini and Stephanie Alexander food. It was very tasty apparently, as they ate it all up, and the end of my porridge too. Today it is cooler, I have drawn the curtains to preserve the illusion : outside it is sunny and warm. I hope to be able to sleep tonight, and not lie there waiting endlessly to sleep. The recipe today is Baked Ricotta with Poached Fruit 800g drained ricotta 2 eggs 225 g icing sugar vanilla extract Preheat oven to 150 C ( 130 fan-forced) and grease and line a 25 x 5 x 7 cm bar tin ( or whatever you have really) Beat ingredients till smooth, pour into tin and then place in a roasting dish filled with boiling water that comes 1/2 way up the tin. Bake 40 minutes, cool, then refrigerate for at least an hour. Turn out and slice. Serve with poached fruit, drizzled with syrup: Place 220 g caster sugar, 60 ml port/juice/wine and 250 ml water in a pan and stir over low heat till sugar is dissolved. Add fruit : peaches, rhubarb, tamarillos, etc. Poach 4 minutes, and remove. Boil syrup till reduced by 1/2. Pour over fruit and cool.
