I was so excited to try this recipe to make honey tuiles as I was not sure it would work without sugar. But they were perfect! I used mine to shape into baskets for ice cream and they were the perfect vessel. Not only that, but they added the perfect level of sweetness to my not so sweet semifreddo.
We live in an area that was parcelled off for sale in the 1970’s. Some of the houses in our street were built during that time. And others are newer. In 2002 there were two vacant plots for sale. Dave and I decided that the one in the middle of the block would be more suitable. It was slightly smaller than the corner erf, and more expensive. But we did not want the traffic noise as the other stand is on the only road heading up the mountain. We started building in 2004 and at present, ours is the newest house on the block. At the time our plans were drawn up, it was very modern. We have large windows and plenty of them, which is no longer allowed. Our lounge and pub have folding and sliding doors which let in a lot of light. And the space is huge.

But soon we will be the old house. The corner property was sold a few years ago, and left alone. And when we left for overseas there was no sign anything was going to happen. But two weeks later on our return I noticed activity. The foundations had been dug and the foundation walls built up. There is also a plan of the house on the information board. And it is super modern. The house looks fantastic from the architects rendering and it will shadow the house next door in more ways than one. Firstly, it is double storey and the house next door is not. This will block the afternoon sun somewhat. And their next door neighbour is one of the original homes. But I cannot wait for our new neighbours to be done building as that will make our road complete.
