Lemon Curd and a cat painting

The lemon curd I made on Sunday and it is now tuesday, you can see how much I like it!
This Painting is by John Oxborough. http://www.johnoxborough.co.nz/current.html
Its called 'cat on a table' and has been a good dinner party discussion painting for may many years
(actually 25 next year). It is the very first painting that Gary and I bought together and it absolutely our most favourite. We have never gotten sick of it. The only conflict associated with it was early in married life and who would get it if we ever split.We now know that, that is never going to happen.


  1. Juice and zest of four lemons
    150 grams of butter
    1 and 1/2 cups of sugar
    three eggs and four yolks or four eggs (I had yolks as I made a Pavolva)
    In a double boiler or a bowl over a pot..whisk lemon juice and sugar until dissolved and then add chopped butter and zest..melt it and whisk in beaten eggs.Keep whisking the whole time over heat until mixture is lovely and thick..you will know when that is.
    Spoon into sterilized jars and refrigerate.

  2. Just catching up on you...how funny to think who would ever get the painting. Congrats on a long married life.

  3. Hey thanks
    I am back at school at the moment re-certifying( hopefully)for nursing.So am head down tail up.
