Spotted Dick - An Update

I brought the Spotted Dick to knitting group and it was a big hit.

I made a little plate for each gal. I used English china (because if you are eating Spotted Dick, it should be served on English china) and topped each serving with a little Cool Whip.

I asked everyone to take a bite and then I told them what they were eating. No one spit it out, which I thought was a good sign. There was much guffawing and most of the gals polished it off. A couple of them took a polite bite and then quietly put their plates back on the coffee table. Julie loved it, she said she wants a case of it for Christmas!

Glad to know you tried it!! No spotted dick in this area yet. Would have loved to seen the faces when you told them the name.

Once you get it out of the can it doesn't look too bad...and cool whip makes ANYTHING taste better. I don't think I would bring it to a school potluck.

On one side of your blog is your post on Spotted Dick. On the other side, a big ad for Pepto Bismol. Hmmmmm.

When I see that in your title my first thought is always which Darrin did you spot...York or Sargent!
I just could not pass that one up, but I could pass on a dish of that even with Cook Whip!
