Who is the thief?
Last May we lost our lovely Springer Spaniel, Max, to cancer. Here is his picture.
Max was very good at stealing food without leaving a trace. He was never caught in the act, though, he was too clever for that. If Max had still been here I would have known that he was the thief. He would have crept into the kitchen and very delicately stolen just one sausage roll, leaving the others untouched.
Rob and two of our offspring have Coeliac Disease, which means they can't have anything containing gluten. Although there are a wide range "Free From" foods to choose from nowadays, I still make things like fruit crumbles, sausage rolls, cakes, pies, etc. in big batches and freeze them. The picture is of my last bumper batch of sausage rolls to freeze. I was quite proud of this batch - apart from the rack containing the neat lines of almost perfect sausage rolls destined for the freezer there was another plateful cooling on top of the fridge of those that weren't so perfect. (Note the gap at the bottom right hand corner.)
The labradors were not the culprits. Not only were they nowhere near the kitchen when the sausage rolls were cooling, but if they had managed to get in there, believe me it would have been total devastation!
Hubby said it wasn't him
It wasn't me
It wasn't technoson (he says with a cheeky grin - hmmm I wonder)
It wasn't sparkyson (he says and I believe him)
Daughter does not live here.
So - who stole the sausage roll?
