In the light of recent events I don’t feel like taking the p.ss out of my saddlebags. I don’t feel like doing much apart from pulling my children close and not letting them out of my sight ever again. As parents the urge to protect is overwhelming and yet a large and important part of our job is to equip them with all they need to navigate life safely and independently away from our care. The reality is that terror is out there and children are being killed all over our world by extremists who seek to destroy the most vulnerable and newsworthy. Can we really avoid it if it crosses our path? I think not. All we can do is to love them well and in the time that we are lucky enough to have their ear teach them tolerance and kindness towards all. There is much wrong with this world and most is born from perceived (real or not) injustice, maybe all our children together can make a change.

One of my food memories from my childhood is Strawberry Mousse. My mother used to make it. I loved it. It epitomised all that was summer for me as a child. This recipe is for children everywhere.
