Bilby I messed up a mousse once so I put in in my ice cream maker. It turned out to be a very good, extremely rich chocolate amaretto ice cream! Whats in your mousse?

I'm embarassed to say it was just a packet chocolate mousse I found in the back of my pantry when I was cleaning out. I added some rose water essence to the mix (powder and milk) and put it in a shortcrust pastry case. I was going to top with shaved chocolate before serving. When I was getting sprayed with the mousse as I was whipping it (!!), it tasted okay, albeit a tad sweet for my taste.

I think it would freeze fine, just eat it frozen... like an ice cream cake.
Sounds good for your hot weather, it that still going on?

Thankfully no!! Next week it is meant to get back to the mid-30's Celsius but after being the Australian title holder of the capital city with the most days in a row over 30C to Adelaide (and boy are we cut up about that - NOT!!!!), a few days is absolutely nothing! Actually welcomed the duvet the other night!!! And to make things even better, we are in the last fortnight of DLS!!!!!

And thanks for the tip! It is going in the freezer tonight!!

I made banana muffins yesterday. Cook's Illustrated says you can use any quick bread recipe to make muffins - just cut the baking time in about half. Good stuff

I also made a loaf of cinnamon-raisin bread in the bread machine, but it didn't rise I don't know what happened, but DH is eating it anyway

yesterday and it was simply wonderful! No wonder it's the highest rated apple pie on the site. SO good... I got lots of compliments.
