The Margarine Exploded

I was trying to make a cake in the microwave.  To be exact, bear was making a cake and I was supervising and when we melted the margarine in the microwave it went bang.  You would not believe the sort of mess exploding margarine will make.  It could have been worse.  I think there was just a little water in it that got trapped in a bubble and it obeyed the laws of physics.  And it was 'only' the inside of the microwave that got splatted.  Of course, it's a combination microwave so I've got to try and sort out the elements of the conventional bit.  Sigh.  The cake wasn't worth it either.  It was far too dry and even custard couldn't rescue it.

We have bear's school shoes now.  We got there first thing, but it was still crazily busy.  However we have now got bear kitted out.  Roll on Tuesday.

Bear has not been reading The Lord of the Rings for the last few days (somewhat to my relief) but we watched the Fellowship of the Ring today after shopping. I really enjoyed it.  It's been a few years since I watched it, and I'd forgotten how much I loved it.

While we were watching, we tucked into these.

They actually taste of candy floss.  They're also around as cotton candy grapes.  I seriously recommend them as a treat but I'm not sure if they would fit in as one of your five a day as they are so sweet.

  1. Oh, no! I can just imagine the mess from the exploded margarine! Glad you have bear's new school shoes, though. I haven't seen those grapes here, but I shall be on the look out from now on. I love the taste of candy floss!
