Something warm and sticky…

“Save it for a….”  a/ bandage to staunch a spurting arterial bleed. b/ hat to put on your head as protection against molten lava belching from Krakatoa. c/ a rainy day. It’s not easy, I know, but then again £56, 000 was at stake. And so, after a bit of head scratching, about a million phones will ring to claim the money. We all know how this works but why is it so successful?  The public’s yearning for “money for nothing”, otherwise known as mindless greed, is the answer. I offer  this without the a, b or c option to save you money on your phone calls. My savage breast needed calming, and music wasn’t going to do it. It surprised me that my breast was so savage, and I had to check with Google that it wasn’t a savage beast that needed calming, but it was indeed my breast. Making food, taking pictures and writing can calm my breast so I did all three. Apples, apricot jam and puff pastry were a, b, and c.

  1. Still lovely enough to photograph – and eat, one hopes – outdoors?
    That’s a bonus…

    Lovely tart! I truly believe that cooking, photography and writing is not only calming but can bring much happiness. Only if you don’t burn the dish…

  5. Killing me. You are killing me, Roger. I could eat my screen.

  6. Maddening, these phone-in ruses.

    Nice pie, though 🙂

  7. Good lord. This makes me happy I’ve gotten rid of my land line and converted solely to a cellular. Wonderful color of your tart!

    Though your photography is impeccable, just as we’ve come to expect, that is one helluva tart for subject matter.
