Wicklewood’s School Day’s Green Custard

"Friends of mine in America, and British friends who went to private schools, have never heard of mint or green custard, and they usually cringe at the idea of it. But anyone having had a typical State education will remember fondly the sight, smell and taste of green custard, especially when it is served with chocolate concrete, try Wicklewood’s Schooldays Chocolate Concrete (Gluten Free)# 439397. It is a favourite with kids and adults love it for the taste and the nostalgia For a more grown up version you could stir in 2 tablespoons of Crème de Menthe before serving."

I am in the process of starting my own business, which initially was exclusively targeted at ceoliacs, but thanks to my new husband and his diabetes, we hope to create food that is not only gluten free and sugar free or low carb, but will also cater for those amongst us with a whatever attitude to healthy food...Yes I do have one left at home,,bring on the empty nest.</p> <p><span><span><strong>The other man in my life</strong></span></span></p> <p><img title=The src=http://img577.imageshack.us/img577/5314/file4226.jpg alt=width=320 height=213 /></p>
