A few days ago Christopher came to me excited about a 'new' recipe he'd discovered. It only took me a moment to realise he was talking about an old childhood favourite. My Dad used to make us spiders for a treat. For the uninitiated, it's just a scoop of icecream in your favourite soft drink (pop, soda, whatever you call it in your corner of the planet). Watch it fizz and use your tongue to catch the inevitable overflow! I love using creaming soda (vanilla flavoured), because it goes so well with icecream, though I do concede that lime and orange flavoured drinks are really nice too.
Please ignore the crumbs on my kitchen bench! They seem so much larger on the computer screen than they did in real life! I swear I do wipe my benches regularly ;)
