Creme Caramel and Yorkshire puddings.
On Sunday I was cooking roast beef and yorkshire puddings for our dinner.
I was in a baking mood so I thought I would make a dessert. As creme caramel is my DH favourite, decided on treating him to that.
I cooked the caramel until it was dark golden and then poured that into a loaf tin and it had coated the sides of the tin. It had to cool down before I could pour the custard part in to the tin.
I had also prepared the batter for the yorshire puddings in a jug as it needs to stand for a few hours.
Well can you guess what I did? Ninny had poured the yorkshire pudding batter in the cream caramel tin and in the oven it went. After it was cooked, not realizing what I had done, I them place it in the fridge to cool down.
On to the next stage of the dinner, I got the oil hot in the muffin trays to cook the YP's ( they had both looked the same and I thought all was good!
It wasn't until the YP's were not rising that I knew exactly what I had done.
Lucky it was not a fancy dinner party and it was only my dear family and we could have a laugh about it.
I bet you don't do silly things like that!
I liked this little poem in a book I have ~ called
Stepping Stones ~ by Margaret Ingall
No-one likes to make mistakes
Or feel they've been a fool,
But those who never make mistakes
May never learn at all.
So don't get too discouraged or
dwell harshly or too long
On bygone slips or blunders,
Or times you got it wrong.
Just think of them as stepping stones,
You've passed and left behind,
They"ve paved your path to wisdom, so
Move on with peace in mind.
