I can cook. I just don't do it very often.

Pink meringues, made by my own fair hand. (Using my sunbeam mixmaster if you want to get technical!)
  • Three egg whites
  • One cup of sugar
  • One teaspoon of vanilla
Sometimes I put cornflour in too, and sometimes I don't. This time I put some red food colouring in and no cornflour. That's cause my Mum might have eaten some of these and she has celiacs disease and can't do gluten. I know that true "corn"flour doesn't have gluten, but very often cornflour is wheaten cornflour which does have gluten. So just to be sure I omit it altogether. Oh. And I never ever just make a single batch of anything. (See the profile. Eight children. Two grandchildren. I cook for crowds.) When I make meringues I use 9 eggs.

This week seems to be rocketing by with very little productivity on my part. I noticed Picklesticks has just posted a free tote pattern with tutorial on her blog. Miss 13 made herself a new pencil case. So my kids have been productive! I have just been out of sorts I guess and haven't done anything. We did find out today that our application for a stall at the MarionLIFE market in October was successful. So, I will have to get out of this funk and sew something I think!!!

The meringues look fabulous, so when you DO cook obviously you do a bang up job.

Sometimes you have to let someone else be creative for a while. You're obviously germinating some creative ideas this week - thinking rather than doing.

Have a great rest of the week.

Eek October, that is just around the corner. Your meringues look really pretty, quite spring like.

Really lovely meringues. I like eating them with thick cream. It must have been a very large omelette you had the next day! x
