i used to be a Tupperware dealer [back in the dark ages of 30 - 40years, seems like a lifetime away now] I loved it, meeting people and selling a good product too. we had a recipe for a custard square using the crackers. Line the square keeper with glad wrap [cling film] and place the crackers in 3 rows of 3, pour over your much thickened custard and place more crackers on tp, leave to cool and then ice. Easy to remove from square keeper with the cling film [don't know what you call it there] very easy to do and slice! I checked Wikipedia and I know that slice too. Three layers of pastry... Oooooo:-) not good for my waistline though.
There are not many places we can buiy the denheath range now, but they will courier their product all over NZ, maybe I should get some from Christmas. My mother used to make her own pastry often, her custard square are legendary, as is her green marshmallow slice. I'm a bit like her, an experiemental cook!
The house is quiet and tidy again. Yes it was good with us all being together again, perhaps for the last time, the travel from USA to here is long and Carol finds it tedious, Jean she seems to still be managing, but as she has all her chn here, she will make the trip as often as she can no doubt.
Well Len is out at the Prayer Mts, and the washing is spining on it's last cycle, which means work for me. Machine has stopped, so bye for now - Phyllis
Mille Feuille.. are those what we call custard squares or vanilla squares. If so then my mum used to use square crackers as well as pastry sometimes. I like the Denheath squares, they are expensive, but one every couple of years and my appetite is satisfied.

Oh yes! I know, but I do have a faze of 'Needing' a choccy meal now and then, and it's just as well it is now and then too. You'll have to make a Banoffee pie and tell me what you thought of it Francine. When it comes to my taste buds I am definately a Brit. Chip butties, with salt and vinegar, snitzel and chips too, or roast beef with horseradish sauce and yorkshire pud. Toad-in-the-hole with mashed spuds and a good gravy:-) However I am equally pleased with a lettuce, cuc and tomato sammie, or a salad with everything ummmm!
Having said all that it'll be a banana for supper - bye catch up again soon.
Oh bother, can't eat these anymore:-(
