the other night i made nigella's instant chocolate mousee it was all things good smooth chocaltey and sweet
3 cups mini marshmallows
1/2 stick unsalted butter, softened
9 ounces best quality semisweet chocolate, chopped into small pieces
1/4 cup hot water from a recently boiled kettle
1 cup heavy cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Put the marshmallows, butter, chocolate and water in a heavy-based saucepan.
Put the saucepan on the stove, over heat, though keep it fairly gentle, to melt, stirring every now and again. Remove from the heat.
Meanwhile whip the cream with the vanilla until thick and then fold into the cooling chocolate mixture until you have a smooth, cohesive mixture.
Pour or scrape into 4 or 6 glasses or small dishes and chill until you want to eat. The sooner the better!

Reilly turned seven yesterday... it was another hot day but he was so excited to go to school and share the Donuts we had ordered... so armed with 24 iced donuts off we trapsed to school...
the big difference I noticed this year is that Reilly actually read his cards to me I was very proud of how far he has come since last year when he wouldnt even try to read and it was all too hard !
After school we came home to more presents... lego was the main gifts and then we had pizza for dinner ... pepparoni of course for reilly followed by his favourite cake... chocolate...
today we are off to the aquarium for a special afternoon !
Arabella always like a prop and she is holding a worse for wear candy cane a girl she met last year at transition brought in a christmas card and candy cane and they kept for bell until this year... sweet !
