Shoe Pastry

Shoe pastry = choux pastry
Choux (pronounced ‘shoe’) pastry, or puff pastry, is the basis of a number of great pastry delicacies, including cream puffs, eclairs, and some types of turnovers.

Here’s a simple recipe you can use:
½ shoe of lard
1 ¼ shoe of water
1 ¼ shoe of flour
4 eggs, beaten in a size 4 shoe
(if you haven’t any eggs, golf balls will do, so long as they are beaten – hit - in a size 4 shoe)

Short Fat Poem

When travelling abroad,
Hide your credit card in a block of lard.
It’ll never be stolen.
Safer than in a salad, where it could be eaten.
And when the cash machine eats your card,
And you’re left fingering a fatty slot,
Praise the lard
For making the bank fat.
