Mmmm Lemon Meringue Pie! I always liked the sound of it and the look of it, but because there is no chocolate on it or in it I would never choose it from a desert menu. And so I never actually had a slice during my twenty something years on this earth. That was until April 29th 2011. Yes I remember that date for being the day I had my first slice of Lemon Meringue Pie. There was also a wedding going on that day too.

I love the whole idea of sewing, being able to make something that you can wear or use just by cutting some material and stitching it together. A few years ago I taught myself how to sew with a needle and thread, it was out of necessity as I kept loosing buttons and just wanted to be able to replace them. Once I had accomplished that I knew my next step was the sewing machine!

I love soup. It is one of the handiest things ever to make. I know there is a bit of preparation in washing and chopping the ingredients, but other than that it is just so simple. And you end up with a great big pot of soup which lasts for ages! I particulalry like vegetable soup as you can throw in whatever you want really (providing its a vegetable!). It's also an instant dose of goodness, so I'm sure you get to tick off a few of your 5-a-day by eating a bowl of this stuff!

I always thought the idea of peanut butter was just wrong. I didn't like the look of it and when I tasted it I came to the conclusion that it was just a horrible weird salt and sugar paste, with a hint of peanuts.
Years later I decided to give it another go. I realised what went wrong the first time was that I had eaten one of the big brand type peanut butter spreads that was full of sweeteners and bad stuff. However the second time round I tried the healthier version. I got natural peanut butter made from ...100% peanuts of all things! And it tasted really good, I was instantly converted!

So I have been inundated with requests for updates on my lovely new bike!
Okay, well maybe that's a bit of an exaggeration, but at least four people have enquired about it so I thought an update was in order! First of all she has officially been christened Dorothy. And secondly, well there's not much news apart from that!

I usually never need to give the cake flavour a second thought - I always go for chocolate - but because this one wasn't for me, and because my Mam isn't really a fan of all the chocolate things I make, I asked the two of them what flavour they would like. In the end we all agreed on lemon. That may have been the only other option I gave them but sure they were still happy with it!
