What are your thoughts on custard?


I am having a bit of difficulty getting my iPhone and my iMac to trust each other at the moment, which is why my posts have been a little thin on photos.

I wanted to show you a picture I took of some colourful tourists I took today, but unless I get the devices to talk to each other before I finish writing, you might not see what appallingly bad taste in clothing they have. I am betting that they are from the former DDR.

20 minutes later...

Right. I have finally got them to talk to each other so now you can see the tourists. I don't know how long the two devices are going to cooperate though, the little bastards.

I was wondering how many young people eat custard these days. Probably more than pour it over jam roly-poly, I bet.

  1. I like it pouring, my husband likes it so that a spoon can stand up in it, and so we don't have it often. lol

    1. I would go one step further than your husband and admit to liking the thick skin on cold custard.

    2. Custard skin is the foul. Liking and eating it?

  2. I suspect that a section of society imagines that 'highly coloured' equates with 'trendy'. Usually it's the opposite.

    Did you mean Crème Anglaise?

    1. No. Crème Anglaise is the pale, thin, watery stuff which Frenchmen think is custard.

    2. I think it is the DDR version of holiday clothing.

  3. Black to white, and everything between. Are you the fashion police, requiring matching outfits before a group leaves home. Just wondering.

    1. I would say that they do match, in an odd sort of way. If you think I am opinionated, you should hear H.I.'s opinions on the use of colour in clothing.

  4. They look like members of the ' fleece ' club !!!

    1. I thought you meant the colour custard for a minute, like 'mustard'. You can read my opinion on skin above. I occasionally buy the Ambrosia tinned version, but that sadly doesn't form a skin.

  5. Quasimodo in trainers in there somewhere.

    Young people eating don't feature in my life.

    2. What's that got to do with custard?

    3. Oh alright. I love custard and buy it in a green Devon carton from Waitrose. I no longer make it myself. For my birthday Peter gave me a large tin of Birds custard powder this year; I got angry and told him to take it away. So now you know.

    4. Too much information, as usual.

    5. I'm sorry. I'll keep quiet in future.

    6. The sting in the tale.

  6. Custard is one of the great pleasures in life.

  7. Home made or out of a tin? Thank you for the bee info, I didn't know about them either.

  8. Í think your are correct for the first four women on the outside when counting from the rear are in step.
    Which speaks of a teutonic mindset !
    My preferred custard was always a baked one with a lash of clotted cream, alas both are now off the menu.

    1. That will teach you for abusing your heart in the past. One of life's little pleasures ending in death, like most of life's little pleasures.

  9. Custard has always been one of the things I hold against England. Along with parsley sauce, I don't know why it was ever allowed to leave the nursery.

    1. Both escaped from a Victorian nursery, and both found their way into the House of Lords canteen. Can't think how or why.

  10. Is there some sort of connection I haven['t got between badly dressed tourists and custard?

  11. Gosh, they do look German, don't they? This is not a moment of national pride for me. No thoughts on custard, I'm afraid.

    1. My German friend thinks they could be Eastern European, like Bulgarian. I said that Eastern Europeans usually come here to work, not holiday. I warned him that we would probably not have anyone to pick hops after Brexit, so the UK will run out of beer.

  12. Custard is really wonderful if it is thick and creamy and home made.....and then I eat great big bowls of it.
