Ida Lupino's Lemon Mousse

"My agent had once told me that he was going to make me the Janet Gaynor of England - I was going to play all the sweet roles."

I've been in a bit of a spin since my last entry. Just after I finished Marlene's delicious lamb chops and was just about to find out who won Big Brother the phone rang and a bombshell was dropped. I cannot reveal all the ins and outs of it here as it is sub judice but suffice to say I am just back from the Mortimer Market Centre and most definitely, for the first time in about 2 and a half years 100% single.

Anyhow, life goes on and one has to eat. I hereby give a public vote of thanks to Paulette who, completely understanding the tizz I get myself into when cooking for more than 2 other people rustled up some of Ida's mousse for the book group. It was, as usually totally delicious and at least I know that one recipe translated into English measurements actually works.

Much industry on the book proposal and sorting out my love life and not enough time cooking. Still, Joan Blondell's French Onion Soup is on the cards for tonight. Tres bien.

Hi Honk - I am a complete technophobe, apart from being a devotee of MYFACEYOURARSEBOOK. I just wanted to let you know that all your blogging does not go unappreciated and that I occassionally check on your exploits from time to time (and enjoy the ludicrous recipes of yesteryear). Keep up the good work!

Ah Mr Jem

How marvellous to know that someone on the other side of the world is reading the blog. If you fancy rustling up any of the ludicrous recipes of yesteryear please let me know and I can send the instructions.

By the way, many of the dishes proposed by the stars are actually quite delicious. For the benefit of both my readers and my dinner guests I tend to avoid recipes containing tapioca, tripe and aspic.
