we tend to have apple crumble much like the others lol grin

It's easy. You pop it in when you take the chicken out.

By the time you've cleared the main dishes the crumble is waiting to be taken out and served with ice cream! grin

Eton mess - easy to make and most people seem to like it!

lovelysongbird Sun 31-Aug-08 15:48:52

It's easy, get some ready made pastry, cook the blackberries with some sugar on the hob, then put them together!
