He finally got it!

Is this some serious procrastination or what.. haha .. 5.5 years ago D was up in the Gulf and I did what every Navy widow does from time to time.. I went to the mall to fill in a day off from work. There is a great shop at the mall and it sold all sorts of kitchen bits and bobs.. and there I found a pudding bowl and bought it.. here it is in all it's glory, maybe not as good as an old fashioned ceramic one but it would do the trick, since Derek is mad keen on Steak and Kidney Pudding I thought it would be something he would love when he got home.
Now I can see you sitting there, wondering where the procrastination fits into this.. well you see, Derek came back from the Gulf,  then went to Asia, came back and then went somewhere else.. you get the idea and in all that time he never got his steak and kidney puddin'.. not until now ...
He waited 5.5 years for this - my first ever attempt. Now it might not be to conventional because I couldn't get my head around stuffing a suet pastry lined bowl with raw meat and stock and expecting to get anything out other than a globby mess.. so I cooked the meat first in a good stout, thickened it ever so slightly then piled it into my mould, I then steamed it for 2 hours..
this is the result..  oh my goodness, the pastry was light and filling and the meat so tasty.. served with mashed swede and carrot and peas,  why on earth did it take me so long.....

Was there really kidneys in it Wendy?

ruh roh, is this a trick question? There was a couple of kidneys, I am not keen on them but D loves them, so the youngest son and I slid ours to the side of our plates, they disappeared to.
