With the majority of my family wanting to eat out in a restaurant on Saturday night, the only way I could persuade them to stay in (and therefore allow me to nicely stay in my points) was to convince them I could cook them a meal as nice as they would have if we went out.
Desserts….not something I’m ever too fussed about having straight after my tea but, on the odd occasion (usually when other people are having them) I start to think ‘well why can’t I!?!’. In general I never think to reach for cake or sweet treats after savoury but, after a big family Sunday lunch at my parents, the cakes, scones, pavlova and tarts all come out of their devlish boxes and make their way onto the table. Having seen the lovely multi coloured treats the cravings kick in and this is where I whip out my favourite dessert weapon…..MERINGUE!!
