NO MORE CAKES



They'll be no more cake eating in this house. Yesterday my roomie Kirsty and I celebrated her being fired by walking over to The Fish House of Hackney and treating ourselves to a divine mean of Haddock and chips (Kirsty) and fish pie (me). There was white wine all round. The food was superb and reasonable too for a proper restaurant (they have a take away / shared seating area too but we wanted to live it up). My pie was topped with delicious mashed potato and cheese and I found to my delight not only cod and prawns within but mussels, squid, smoked haddock and salmon.





Anyway we had a great time but afterwards were a bit like, Dude! It's summer soon - know what I'm saying? A time of bare legs and exposed upper arms. Anyway to cut a long story short - no more fish pie.

The cake in the picture above? It's only from The Hummingbird Bakery. No big deal.

Actually it really wasn't a big deal - pretty sugary and sickly. We're spoilt for choice these days with the cakes Kirsty picks up on Broadway market. Might have to do a feature on these - raspberry clafoutis, cookie and vanilla fudge and wheat free treacle and ginger cake.

Except we're not eating cakes any more of course.
