Apricot Clafoutis | French Baked Dessert

Using fresh, firm and seasonal fruit I made an apricot clafoutis. This French dessert consists of fruit baked in a thick batter.

In South Africa, it is a legal requirement that all medications include a package insert. Regardless of whether they are vitamins, over the counter medications or prescribed drugs. When I worked in a Psychiatry practice I would read MIMS to learn more about what was being given to the patients. And to this day, I always read the inserts. They include all sorts of information. What the medication looks like, what it does, and how you should take it. There is an extensive list of contra-indications and possible side effects. And details about what happens if you overdose. For many people this is of no concern. But I like to double check the scant information given by the doctor or pharmacist. And I like to know if there is anything I should be aware of. Especially when taking supplements that are not prescribed.

Part of my new regime is to take one tablet for two weeks, every three months. This sounds a lot more complicated than it is. Every two weeks I top up my pill containers with the myriad of vitamins that I take. So all I had to do was add this new pill to the containers. My first one was taken on a Sunday morning and within an hour I felt like I had been ridden over by a train. I was physically spent and went to lie down for half an hour. When I got up I made coffee and started reading the package inserts. And I noticed that I should be taking the medication at night. Mainly because it causes drowsiness. Well, I was more than just drowsy and grateful I had not taken the pill on a work day.
