I worked very hard, repeating the recipe over and over again, to perfect my gluten-free shortcrust pastry. Dave and I sampled a lot of tarts in doing so. But I made sure not to duplicate the flavours. This lime tart was rich, and surprisingly sweet even though packed full of lime flavour.
I watch a lot of television. This is not something I should admit to doing. But, it is my reality. We have a home gym and I train with the TV on. My first choice will be sport as you don’t have to watch every minute if you are listening. The second option is the news. If I am on the stepper I can pay attention to the screen and I will watch a show that Dave does not enjoy. And then when he comes home we watch all sorts of programmes. In amongst this is a slew of series. What I cannot understand is how come the same actors are used over and over again in different shows? A doctor in one series I am watching without Dave has become a lawyer in a something we are watching together. And you cannot dissociate the actor with their character.
Ellen Pompeo will always be Meredith Grey! A bit limiting I am sure, but after 16 seasons it is who she is. At present we are watching Rob Lowe act in Wild Bill as an American policeman. His character, Bill Hixon has been tasked to sort out the East Lincolnshire department. He is a widower with a young daughter who tried to commit suicide, and a few problems of his own. After 6 episodes the show was cancelled and Rob moved on to a new show, 9-1-1 Lone Star. Here, as Owen Strand he has been employed to revive a fire station in Austin Texas. This time he has relocated from New York with his young adult son, who has tried to commit suicide. With all the people available to work as actors you would think they could at least find new people to work in different shows!
