Gravy Queen,

WOW ... Thanks GQ ... always a pleasure to hear from you. This is a refreshing lovely dessert ... and so versatile ... The placing in a tall stemware glass is so impressive too !

I had thought to ask you about how you prepare your Fools ?

Do you use different fruit or do you employ wafers or Lady fingers instead of white chocolate ?

Would love to try yours too !

Buonasera, Ciao,
Margi.

I've only ever done a simple fruit and cream fool Margi, nothing else added. I am also a fan of syllabubs. I'm a creamy fool!

GQ,

A creamy fool, you say ... ha ha ... I am a chocolate fool then !

The Vet had loved this dessert for years ... So, I found the recipe in the Northern UK trip Book and decided to prepare it and then post it ...

Have a lovely evening ... Big Football Game On Tonight ...

Margi.

Margi,
This looks like a tasty recipe. And pretty easy too. Fool that I am, I didn't save it yesterday. Don't you love the internet. It's still right here where you shared it yesterday. It must mean I'm supposed to copy it and say Thank You.

Leasing Space,

Thank you for the compliment ... Let me know how it turns out ...

I understand that you are the Head Chef of a Military Base. From Monday through Friday 7.30am to 9.30am I provide English Lessons for the Spanish Officers in Madrid ( The Paratroopers ) ... I work with men ranging from 39 to 60 who require SLP Level 3 for NATO Missions Abroad ( Afghanistan for example ) ... Where are you located ?

I am a Publishing Journalist for the Expat Press, however, I do not have to be at the Magazine Office until 10am, and therefore, I am quite fulfilled doing this part time work, as it has provided me with the inside story on Spain, its politics, economy, traditions, gastronomy, tourism, history, and celebrations ... It is like an Inter-exchange of cultures and I enjoy it very much ...

I hope to hear from you regarding the Lime Fool !

Kind regards, Ciao.
Margi.
