Gloria’s Lemon Creams

Gloria in A Good Wife, loves Lemon Creams. Her story starts with her facing a packet of her fancies, hidden in her drawer to stop her eating them. I’m not an enourmous fan of them myself, preferring a custard cream instead.

As children my parents were very, very strict about the biscuit barrel. The rule was 2 a day, one fancy and one plain. Now this was good if there were Custard Creams because then I could believe I had 3 by pulling the CC apart. Incidentally my siblings and I never, ever forget this rule, and I have yet to return to the UK for a family visit when one of us doesn’t make mention of this.  If I told you how old we all are now, you’d be shaking your heads and muttering that by now we should be over it! Hahahaha, not likely!

Chocolate Digestives now these little discs are one of my favourites. Given the chance I could eat a packet and a half in one sitting.

    No, not a dunker I believe in complete apartheid where biscuits and tea are concerned (if we can consider cookies and tea as a race of course) – anyway I digress.
    Haven’t done biscuits for a while, been disappointed in their quality of late (burnt bits, stale, grease marks on Rich Tea) so gave them up.
