I love entertaining and I could have guests over every night of the week if my budget would cope. Also, they would have to leave early enough for me to still get my ‘beauty’ sleep in, as I need a certain amount of sleep every night. I like to stick to my routine and so we are in bed and reading between 22h00 and 22h30 and lights out is as close to 22h30 as the chapter allows. Of course, there are exceptions to this – some nights I just cannot keep my eyes open and other nights we are out and having fun. But during the week I really like to stick to this regime, as we are up at 05h45 every week morning. My friend Erica is great to have over during the week as not only does she love my food, she brings with her a great bottle of wine, and I can ask her to leave when I am ready to start the wind down for bed. The other night she came over to enjoy the meal I prepared for Eat For The Earth and I wanted to make dessert. I have recently purchased a small omelet pan, and decided this would be the perfect size to make a tatin in. The pan fits into my oven, the handle is suitable for the temperature and the non stick surface means I don’t have to worry when turning out the dessert. This simple, small dessert would have been enough for six people, but Dave and Erica loved it so much, they ate the whole lot!
