Well, I must say yesterday was a fantastic day! After about a million days of not seeing her, my good friend Tasha came over and we indulged ourselves in painting our nails, eating too much food and getting sunburnt in the garden- plans were to do it again today, but in true Brit spirit, yesterday's sun calls for today's rain.
So, missing the summer sun? Get to the kitchen and make yourself some summer mess- meringues, fresh strawberries and cream! Yuuu-um!
Ingredients for the meringues
1. 1 egg white
2. 2oz caster sugar
1. Whisk the egg whites, until they soft peaks
2. Add in the sugar, one table spoon at a time, and whisk until smooth
3. I've piped them into mini meringues, but make them whatever shape you fancy.
4. Bake slowly for 30-35mins at 150 degrees, middle shelf.
Tasha brought some juicy red strawberries, but you can use any fruits. Just cut these up, sprinkle with a bit of icing sugar, add some cream and mix in your meringues. If you have a little bit of jam and mint, now's a good time to garnish, and for the more healthier punters, you can opt for greek yoghurt instead of cream. Head to the garden and enjoy, or, on a day like today, whack on the TV and get to munching. Here's to the sun, British summer and all!
