We Had the Malva Pudding

...It was delicious. A great 3-year anniversary celebration. I must say, however, the boys weren't too thrilled about registering the festivities once we were home. :)

You two look GORGEOUS!!!

I'm so glad you had the malva pudding - that's one of my favourites, with hot custard. Yum!!!!!

And it's just the right weather for that today (cold and rainy).

Congrats on your 3-year anniversary and big hugs to both of you :)

Mmmmm...I love malva pudding. Has Woolworth's come to Maputo yet? I became addicted to their pre-made malva pudding when living in SA, which always seemed to have the big tub of custard strategically placed on the shelf above.

~Marcia - Thanks. I've yet to try malva pudding with hot custard. The version we have comes with creme anglaise, which is like a butterscotch sauce, not as thick as custard. Just the thought of it is making my mouth water!

~Momma Dog - Thank you. Know that you had a heavy hand in making at least 50% of the beauty. :)

~Jo Ann - Obrigada! The dress is one of my very favorites. Ricardo's aunt is a fashion designer in Rio, and it is one of her pieces from last year. The bottom of the dress is incredible - it is full of cut-out flower shapes stitched in contrast ivory thread. Her site is: www.claudiasimoes.com.br if you are interested in seeing more of her clothes.

~Colin - Yes, Woolworth's is here. I've seen that frozen malva pudding several times and nearly given in to temptation! I can only imagine how addictive it must be...and ready-to-eat nonetheless. Sigh! I LOVE desserts...

You're going to be the neice-in-law of Claudia Simoes? So jealous!!! She's one of my favorites when I get to shop in Brazil. Post a picture of the full dress!
P.S. Happy anniversary:)
