A's marinade was so good, I practically inhaled the meat and only politely plucked at my salad only to have seconds of more protein. One of the girls invited her school mates around and the poor girl was vegetarian, well more food for us then I say !
In the afternoon leading up to the cannibalistic affair, I was fumbling around my kitchen looking for a spoon when I had a lightbulb moment.
I thought it would be nice to end the meal with a sweet treat and I was in the mood to bake so I tried my hand for the first time, to make pavlova. Scrambling into my fridge, I found 4 eggs, some chocolate, brown sugar and that's basically all that is needed to make the dessert.
After an hour in a low temperature oven, the pavlovas were ready, all golden on the outside and I hope, marshmellowy on the inside.
To accompany the pavlova, we needed something fruity and after digging into my deep freezer, I found frozed raspberries and made a simple compote.
After dinner, I used A's kitchen to whip up some fresh cream and served up dessert which went down like a treat with everyone. Success !
Now what else should I bake ???
Taking inspiration from a fav baker of mine, Joy the baker - here are some of her creations.
Cranberry banana cake ?
Mocha coffee cake ?
Or the brown sugar apple cheesecake?
I am hungry now.
