Let Them Eat Cake!

So, here I am, sat at my computer, trying to get the heading of the blog to look how I want it (with help from keefiboy in Madrid) when Mrs Dubaibilly comes in and announces, "Well, that's the cake done." To explain, we had some bananas that are a bit over ripe and so Mrs DB decided to make banana bread - so far so good. She followed up her announcement with, "If it tastes strange you don't have to eat it, only it's got an extra ingredient that I didn't mean to put in. You never know you might like it like that and then always want it the same way."

"What have you put in it?", I asked.

"No," she answered, "see if you recognise it, oh by the way, where do you keep this?"

This was a tub of ready mixed patching plaster.

Surely she hasn't ...

Watch this space, it could be anything, we are talking here about the woman who once made steamed fish in parsley sauce with coriander instead of parsley - that was a triumph!

Ummmm, well if it sticks your teeth together, then you'll know what the secret ingredient was & you won't have to go to the dentist for quite a while to get fillings replaced!
