Good morning, everyone. I'm up before the lark this morning; it's hard to say what the weather is like but the forecast is lovely - not all that warm but in the low teens and more sunshine is expected. Lovely!
Yesterday was a very productive day. I got my shopping done in Morrisons so now I am more or less set up for the week ahead as well as for this evening.
Then I set to and sorted out the house in preparation for the cleaners. The sheets were changed and the spare room is now ready to receive guests.
Downstairs again, I dug out a recipe on Cookidoo (the Thermomix recipe site) and sent it to Thermione before making meringue for the base for the pavlova I'm making instead of a cake. To be honest, it is a doddle in Thermione and, after baking, cooling, etc, here's the result. It's bigger than it looks in this photo.
It's going to be so delicious covered in cream and fresh strawberries. Later on today I'm going to make a strawberry coulis (or maybe strawberry and raspberry) to drizzle over the top and I'm getting some chocolate sauce too. May as well go the whole hog!
