I have just grilled a whole tray of organic french lavender shortbread. Yes you read that right. I grilled it and what I now have here is a most unbecoming pile of charred sweetness  I have tried to disguise with a liberal sprinkling of  caster sugar.

Because I plan on eating it regardless.  The baby has been daddy-napped.  The house is blissfully quiet  and Rebecca  is  on the  Dvd.  If it was stormy outside I could almost consider it the perfect afternoon.

So burnt lavender shortbread it is.  On a pretty  plate with a cafetiere of vanilla coffee and some heart shaped sugar cubes.

P.S: Did I mention I am still in my nightie? It’s five o’clock. Too late to get dressed? Yes, I totally agree…

    How clever, but unsurprising of you to exalt the joys of lavendar in cooking! The first time I had it was with lamb shank in argeles where my parents live. It really was something that awoke my palette. As for MYSPACE…my 30 yr old uber cool nephew has his profile on there and I still can't get my head around its higher purpose

    You go girl, a treat to eat and something good to drink (alcoholic or not) is no more than you deserve. Enjoy!

    You're right – a nearly perfect day. I'm wishing you stormy weather to complete the perfection.
    It's been icy here since Friday so we've not left our jammies at our house for 2 days. Sloths? Never! Hibernators! Cuppas, movies, chocolates and family! What could be a better day?

    I love that you have even heart-shaped sugar cubes. I'm not there yet, but I need to be. I love it! Night Schmightie!

    Sounds just perfect Miss Alison ! Enjoy!…Hugsssss

    All sounds like the perfect treat – where can we buy heart-shaped sugar cubes? (I don't even take sugar in drinks but I think I need to buy these!)
