Currying Flavour…

We’re having a little get together today, it was my Daughters boyfriend,  Jake’s birthday on Friday, so they are here for dinner.

Now my darling Hubby has many hidden talents, but one of them is cooking curry,s, he doesn’t often get the time to cook, but does enjoy it, so, what with it being a Bank Holiday weekend, we are in for a treat 😊

Hubby is prepped and ready to go 🤗

My contribution is dessert, Jake’s favourite is Stawberry Pavlova, so Meringue has been baked and will be stuffed with a mix of whipped cream and Greek yoghurt and a loads of sliced strawberries.


I use 3 egg whites (save the yolks for lemon curd) and 175g of white sugar and a dash of vinegar to keep it chewy in the middle. Whisk the whites till they are full and thick, add the sugar whilst still whisking and they become all glossy and shiney, as you add the sugar squeeze in a splash of vinegar. I have made this into a large meringue which I cooked for 2 hours on 95.


Need need a lie down now….. 🤓

Hi - I'm a 49 yo Mum to 3 kids - Jordan (23), Grace (21) and Max (19). And Wife to my lovely Husband, Dave and step mum to 4 fur babies, our cats Eric, Ernie, Cilla and Bobbie. We live on the beautiful Isle of Wight, Hubby and I were born here, and just love our home. As I hurtle towards 50, my life as a full time (working) parent is coming to an end, with my eldest 2 kids living their own lives, and my youngest who started University in September. I realised that this is not a time to be sad, but a time to take time to spend time on some of the things I enjoy doing - mainly cooking, crafting and creating Pinterest boards for said thing s :) This blog is just a way for me to record the next stages of our lives - I hope you enjoy my ramblings...
