there are some lessons in life you just cannot ignore and one of those is
ALWAYS LET YOUR YORKSHIRE PUDDING BATTER REST FOR AT LEAST AN HOUR.
Not up there with "always wear clean underwear" or "never put your scrotum within easy reach of the mouth of a rabid dacshund" I'll grant you, but still, worth noting
I decided to cook a Toad in the Hole for a chum tonight. What a fricking disaster. Rose about as much as a 90 year old on his wedding night.
For all that, still quite tasty. It was saved by some nice pork sausages and a decent sweet potato mash, but it still looked a bit of a dog's dinner as the picture shows.
To make myself feel better, I will post the picture of the double pork chop ( stuffed with sage & stilton ) I made last week. The two are completely unrelated, but pork has this strange ability to make me feel better at even the toughest of times
