Do not panic; I did not pay $179 for the 'do not wash' metal skirt. I saw it at the sales; every so pretty, pockets, so soft, fits me (well, kind of...) and it was on special! My brain told me to buy it. While waiting for the skirt to dry, I was very worried about the potential costs of replacing such a skirt. What if it rusted?! Could I use rust removal spray on it? Is there such a thing as rust removal spray?! Could I wear a rusted skirt to work? Do silver and orange/brown rust colour go together? Would people know it was rust?
*panic panic* Calm down! Go and bake something! Ok:)
Lemon delicious pudding
Looking around the internet while still panicking slightly, I found a recipe for lemon delicious on Ooh, Look. I will not write up the recipe here, so instead, take a look at Bel's lovely blog:)
Bel tried the lemon delicious at Felix Bistro and enjoyed it so much that she recreated it at home. Unfortunately when I went to Felix Bistro last year, I was much too full for dessert, so there was no lemon delicious for me. If you ever have the chance to go to Felix Bistro, do go:) The food is wonderful and the staff are helpful and know the menu well. Below are some photos I took at Felix Bistro.
Just like a real French bistro, minus many French people
Entree - Chicken liver pate, currant relish and cornichons with bread, $16. It was soooooo good!
Main - Duck confit, red grapes, walnut, frisee and radicchi, $32
No photo of a Felix lemon delicious pudding for dessert. Instead, I present to you my lemon delicious as per Bel's recipe. This lemon delicious pudding was my very first and I predict there will be more in the future:)
It's just like sponge cake! I was amazed by this; it is pudding, but cake. Do try it, it is so good. Nice and soft, lemony and down the bottom you will find a thick lemon curd. The only downside for me was that the pudding was so filling! I was struggling to finish my serve.
The pudding was also nice and calming. So, having calmed down as a result, I was able to check on the skirt without having a panic attack. It survived! Take that label!
Yay, potential rusty disaster avoided
Though I am still somewhat worried about the long term consequences of washing a 'do not wash, dry clean only' skirt. Has anyone had any experience in these sorts of matters?
