    I always wanted a guy like Paul.

    And I have a guy like Paul….and two sons like Paul. Geeks are special and to be treasured.

    Lupin is deaf from a kittenhood illness. Somewhere on the website http://www.breakingcatnews.com, Georgia explains about Lupin’s rough start in life.

    I haven’t watched TV in years, so when I read NeedaChuckle’s comment: "I hardly watch any. South Park, World’s Dumbest and Ancient Aliens is about it. " with the lack of an Oxford comma, I thought (for just a minute) that there was a show about aliens who are dumb and ancient. Actually, I’m surprised there isn’t such a show.

    So having figured out the sugars, my question is about “single cream.” Is that more or less the same as the American Half & Half?

    You mix the caster sugar in with the milk and eggs, the demerara sugar is sprinkled on top of the dessert after it is baked, before you broil it.

    I goggled both terms. Caster sugar is super fine sugar. In the US it’s sometimes called bar sugar, berry sugar, or instant dissolving sugar. Being so fine, it dissolves quickly in cold liquid. It is NOT the same as powdered sugar; that is very, very fine sugar that usually has cornstarch mixed in. You can often find superfine sugar at the grocery story, either in the baking aisle with the other sugars or with the booze or bar supplies. Or you can make your own by grinding regular sugar in the blender or food processor.

    Demerara sugar is an unrefined sugar with large, yellow or tannish crystals. The closest you’ll find int he US is probably muscovado or turbinado sugar. At the grocery store you’ll find, in the sugar section of the baking aisle, a product whose brand name is “Sugar in the Raw,” that’s turbinado sugar.

    Looking at this recipe, I think common brown sugar would work nearly as well, as in “Broil Grapefruit.”
