I get my first Daring Kitchen assignment tomorrow! What will it be???? Hoping for something that is challenging, but not incredibly hard or takes a huge amount of space to create!

Strawberry Rhubarb Custard

First post complete!

Strawberry Rhubarb Custard: Okay, maybe soon was an over estimation. I will hopefully get to this tonight!
I finished this about a week ago. I am having difficulty putting pictures up.

I had forgotten that I am not and will not ever be a huge fan of baked egg custard! (I am not sure what I was thinking!) The strawberry rhubarb topping was great and it covered the taste and smell of the eggs custard very well. However every once in a while the smell of eggs came through and I was once again reminded all over again that it is the smell of egg custard that gives me the shivers.
Next time, I would perhaps try to incorporate the strawberry rhubarb into the custard and also add more vanilla to change the taste of the custard (make it taste less eggy)!

So no pictures are going to be forthcoming for this recipe. I have decided that the pictures that I took are not really that great and are under exposed. They are really bad. I have already improved my pictures thanks to some very helpful websites.
Thanks for your patients!
