I lodge at my cousin’s, and she informed me, that her son, his wife, and their 3 year old would be coming to dinner this evening. So, yesterday (Tuesday) I prepared a lovely vegetarian meal in their honour. It was also a chance for us to wish my cousin’s son a happy 40th Birthday, I had messaged him to ask what his favourite cake was.
I made sweet bean pie – which is 3 bean shepherd’s pie, I use sweet potato as the topping, flavoured with garlic, cinnamon and ginger, salt and pepper. Served with corn on the cob, done in the oven, wrapped in foil, seasoned with salt and pepper.
I also made a caramel cake for the son, as that was one of the cakes he listed as it as one of his favourites.
I had a “gut feeling” that they would cancel, whilst I was slaving away over the hot glass hob!
I have read, quite recently that our gut instincts should be listened to, as it always proves to be right….. as I was right on this occasion. 2 hours before they were meant to arrive, my cousin received a phone call saying they were not coming due to vehicle problems.
So, there is caramel cake going begging! I have taste tested it, and it is awesome
