Oh dear, oh dear… no walking for us this weekend (don’t think we can count popping to the shops!).  Our good friends Dan and Hatti came to visit us this weekend after gliding in Dover (sounded like a lot of fun!).  We cooked a lovely dinner (garlic soup to start, duck with pomegranate molasses and healthy chocolate mousse for dessert) and had a nice evening of chat and wine.  And that was our downfall really, or more specifically, Sid’s downfall!  We’d intended a walk on Sunday around Trottiscliffe and the North Downs, but Sid’s extreme hangover and excessive vomiting put pay to that!  So instead me, Dan and Hatti went out for breakfast (yum!).

Guess it goes to show that we wont be able to drink too much on the C2C!!   Will try harder next weekend, which will mean subjecting my sister to our walking ways!

“A healthy chocolate mousse!?” I hear you cry…”how can there be such a thing? please can I have the recipe?!”

Yes you can!…we sort of discovered it by accident / adventurous experimentation 😉 It originated from an Innocent Smoothy recipe, which itself is very yummy! (http://www.innocentdrinks.co.uk/book/)

Serves 2
Juice of 2 apples
1/2 banana (skin removed!)
10 cherries (pips removed)
50g dark chocolate (melted)

Blend juice, banana, cherries and choc toether til smooth. Drink immediately, or pour into nice dishes and pop into fridge to set into a healthy, fruity choccy mousse! Also recommend trying without banana, which can be a bit overpowering.

Top chocolate mousse! And with the knowledge that it won’t go straight to my hips, you can’t go wrong with that!
