Sights of Sunday

August 21, 2011

It has been a rainy and cool Sunday, allowing for some enjoyable kitchen time without the risk of melting in front of the oven.  I’m making the most of it.

I’m now in the habit of collecting scraps for the chickens as I cook through the day, they love these fresh treats and give us wonderful treats in return.  This weekend I’ve tried two new eggy recipes, a hand made mayonnaise and some lovely mini meringues.  I love the bright yellow colour of the mayonnaise and the flavour was yummy too.  We enjoyed chicken and mayo sandwiches, tuna mayo on baked potatoes and a good splodge on the side of our home made gujons tonight.

The left over whites were turned into these cute meringues which we ate with whipped cream (and some strawberry jam for those who wanted it), still a little warm and chewy in the centres.  If there is a better way to end a day I can’t think of it.

Hoping you had a weekend filled with tasty treats and happy times.

    If I could eat only one thing for the rest of my life, meringues would be a top contender. When I went to France, I ate about 4,000 of them. I. Love. Them.

    I have to admit I’ve always avoided them due to the shop bought ones being awful, but now I have awoken to the joys of the meringue. My life before seems like a dream and now all I can think is “What requires 10 egg yolks giving me an excuse to split 10 eggs and thusly make a child sized meringue?”

    If that’s wrong, I don’t wanna be right.
