Where is my mind?

Annoying song in brain mission completed.

Speaking of brain, where is mine? Today I made cornbread, with custard powder instead of baking powder. Now, I'm a competent cook, not brilliant nor necessarily inspired, but I don't make cock ups. Incidentally, how come people can say cock ups without smirking? I know I'm 12, but surely it is funny. Like when the plumber talks about male parts and female parts and nipples with a straight face. If I was a plumber I'd be either laughing all day, or sacked for bringing too much innuendo to the trade.

I thought custard powder might not actually have too much impact, because it is basically cornflour, and I was making cornbread. But it tasted like custard. Literally, I turned the cornbread to custard.

Now I shall crawl into my hole until it is time to drink martinis with the crazy Wellingtonista crew at the towers, those wacky kids and their expense account.

Why don't you put raspberries on top of it and serve it like custard? It sounds yummy to me.

Ha! I have been known to forget the butter when making cookies. Or the sugar. Sigh.

Mmm, martinis.

The most perfectly fluffy sponge cake I ever made, was missing the sugar.

I still get a chuckle out of male and female parts. The first time I heard those terms in a technical context I thought the speaker was having me on.

Strangely the kids loved it. I found it completely repulsive.

Is cornbread wheat free?

Yes Ms Aniston-Vaughan (lucky cow), I think it is. Although I'm not sure if baking powder has a little wheat in it? But custard powder certainly doesn't.

It was lovely to see you on Friday. Next time I really must try to stay longer.

When I saw my bother-in-law scraping icing down the sink I asked why. He said he'd made too much. So I took a big swipe, and when I put it in my mouth discovered the real reason. He'd used cornflour instead of icing sugar. Bleah!
