Men and Marzipan

Whale is rather partial to marzipan and so occasionally I pop a bar of it into the shopping trolley for him.

Last time, however, he complained that it was too sweet and asked me to take it away.

A couple of days later he said, “Have you still got that marzipan? If so, I’d like to try a thin slice.”

So I gave him back the bar, together with a sharp knife so that he could help himself when he wanted.

With the arrival of the hot weather, CC put the remains in the fridge.

Today I came across Bear, in his armchair, munching something.

“What are you eating?”

“I don’t know. It was in the fridge. I thought it was cheese but it’s rather on the sweet side.”

As the marzipan is no more and neither of the men could be called pretty, I’ll leave you with a photo of the rhododendron which is just beginning to flower.

    Honestly, men. What do we see in them?

    Overgrown babies?

    I’m partial to marzipan myself, but you can only buy it in BIG portions now, obviously for covering cakes, so it soon goes dry once opened; even in the fridge. Why doesn’t some manufacturer bring out small bars rather like a bar of chocolate?

    The bars we find here are not too big. You’d need about four of them to cover a cake. I bet you wouldn’t mistake marzipan for cheese though, Keith.

    Best use of marzipan is to be wrapped around a battenburg cake….mmmm I could exist on battenburg and water for life if I had to 🙂

    BTW I agree with Richard

    Pat and Richard, it’s years since I’ve seen a battenburg. My mum used to buy one as a weekly treat on Saturdays.
