After the last post, I was not planning to take a small break. It just happened.
Shyama went to Paris from her school for few days and then it was a long weekend here , so hubby was home too.
And then S was back from Paris and next day she was sick with ear and throat infection.
So while she was in Paris having fun and partying with her friends, every few hours we got SMS from her saying she is in that museum or having a boat trip in Seine etc........... she even took few pics of food :-) she saw this pastry shop selling cupcake and she clicked few pictures for me.
She told me her friends bought cupcakes from this shop, but she didn't buy and I asked why not, her reply they were really small and why should she buy when her mom makes so much cupcakes ........
For the first time after S was born we went for movie alone. Can you imagine in 17 years hubby and I have not gone for movie just two of us.
When S was small we went to watch all the cartoons in the cinema and then when she got a bit older she also love watching movies so when ever we went for a movie ,we took her
Friday evening we thought we will go for a movie, while walking to the theater I suddenly remembered it was 17 years ago we went for a movie just hubby and I alone.
We saw Robbin Hood , i think the movie is OK , but I liked much more the Robin Hood with Kevin Costner.
Now to the recipe part
Eton Mess was Originally made with Strawberries but these days I think they just use seasonal fruits. And as I had a box of Rasepberries I thought why not use them.
It is such a easy dessert to make, my daughter just loves it especially with the addition of Meringue.
200 gm Raspberries
2 tsp powder sugar ( more if you like, don't forget the meringue is also sweet))
1cup whipping cream
1 tbsp vanilla essence
1 packet individual meringue ( I used shop bought ones)
Whip the cream in a large bowl until thick but still soft together with the sugar and the vanilla essence.. Roughly crumble in few of the meringues , you will need chunks for texture as well as a little fine dust.
Fold in the raspberries and the cream mixture . Keep few for decorations.
Serve in individual bowls sprinkling few more crushed meringues.
