Breakfast: Sourdough toast
Lunch: Mushroom and bacon with pasta
Dinner: Carrot polenta pancake
The butterscotch banana cake tasted particularly delicious, perhaps due to the copyright drama I am having. I had dough sitting in the freezer and baked it straight from its frozen stage. It turned out really light and delicious. If I waited for it to defrost first, I think it would have made no or little difference other than testing my patience. I am not sure whether the drama elevated its taste, bit like the forbidden fruit. If the drama did elevate the taste I should include this important point in the method - create drama for better taste.

Interesting survey. Most of the well known chefs are man while at home it seems to be generally considered that woman have the edge. Not so, according to a survey that interviewed 2,806 American woman aged 18 and up.
58 per cent admitted their husbands were better cooks and one in twenty struggled to make eggs for breakfast.
Regardless of time, talent or know-how, 78 per cent of women still enjoyed cooking when they could.
Here’s a summary of the main findings:
· 58% struggle with a curry
· 42% struggle with a spaghetti carbonara
· 11% have never roasted meat
· 78% said their mothers could have made any of the above
· 11% can only cook three meals without a recipe book
· 52% said they didn't cook because their partners did
· 36% blamed lack of time
· 12% blamed the mess
I am guessing the results would have been very different if this survey was conducted in certain other countries. It could even be quite different across the border into Mexico.
Some of you may totally disagree with the findings. If you are reading this food blog you have an interest in food therefore you are perhaps an exception.
