Things have been very odd over the weekend. John lost the key to the electricity meter and so we have been in candlelight... it isn't that we don't have power, but we are afraid that it will run out and leave us in the cold if we use it. And boy, is it cold. It's been snowing and sleeting today, although the sun is warm now, I know it will get very cold again once the sun goes down.

So I feel semi-Victorian... realising how easy it is to misinterpret things in amongst the shadows... and how easy to set your hair on fire. Hope we can get a replacement tomorrow or we're really up the creek without a paddle.
The easiest Banana ice Cream in the world
Freeze chopped banana.

Blend it with a spoonful of milk of cream.

That's it! It needs to be eaten quickly or it melts.... If you use ripe bananas, then they taste very sweet. Can be used as a basis for banana milkshake - much MUCH nicer than the commercial types.

You may wish to make a lot of this, and buy ripe bananas when they are cheap. If you do, be sure to layer the banana, if possible with greased greaseproof. DON'T use foil because it sticks to the frozen banana, and you don't want blended foil in your ice cream or milkshake.
