I take back what I said about the weather yesterday. Yes, it is not raining. Yes, it is colder. No, it's not a lot better than it was. After a beautiful Friday, we were blanketed in thick fog all day yesterday. It was dim and gray. Oh well. At least it didn't rain. But because of the pea soup fog I lost sight of Tasha a time or two on the morning walk, and I don't like that. I finally had to put her on the leash.
It's a banana cream pie, and an American recipe as far as I know. Walt, the pastry whiz, made a flaky pie crust in a deep tin that has a removable bottom. I made a sweet custard thickened with flour and cornstarch using a mixture of milk and cream, and enriched with three beaten egg yolks, a dash of vanilla, and some melted butter. Sliced banana went into the pie shell and the the warm custard got poured over all. The warm custard softened the banana slices just slightly and then firmed up as it cooled. Delicious.
