The lemon cream is a winner and it would be scrumptious with Pavlova and fruit. You can't lose with this and it won't be a heavy, overly rich dessert that will be too much. This is light and airy and perfect for the end of the meal. I wish I was going to be there!

Hi all.
ORegon dreamer, hope all turns out good tonite. ED's aren't known for being the fastest place to get stuff done if you aren't having an emergency at the time. Hopefully, you will get good care. My hospital has a great guest WIFI service and all you have to do is sign onto it and surf away! Doesn't matter how many are on it, its really fast. There was something posted earlier I wanted to comment on...oh now I remember! My lovely furry family member who meows, not the one who barks, has brought 2 baby bunnies into the house. The first was still alive and I put him back outside, He hopped away. The 2nd was dead when I found it in the hallway, that I don't go into every day. So i have no idea how many days it had been lying there. UGH!! LYSOL! to that area! He is really an indoor cat, but loves to go out when its nice and its really hard to catch him when he slithers out between my feet. And if its dark,its hopeless to find him cause he is solid black. He doesn't want to stay out there tho, wants in the nice warm and lovely house again! He did disappear one night this past August and I thought he was gone forever when he didn't turn up the next morning, but in the middle of the night I was woke by his howling at the back door!

No - I don't subscribe to marketing-led "traditions" - except when someone else - there's always SOMEONE - decides they need to do a lamb roast (or bbq) and invite people around for a booze-up - LOL

And pavlovas are almost never homemade because all you do is buy the meringue part in a box at the supermarket then decorate - that is the fun part. But I was very pleased with my own version the other day and was thinking I just might do it since it's always good for impressing people.

If you want to drool, google "pavlova" then click on images. You don't need a recipe to get inspired by those pics!!!

Anyway - I was focussing on the lemon cream - I think this would be stunning - you are responsible...

ETA - couldn't resist one link I just spotted... http://www.homelife.com.au/recipe/pavlova+with+summer+fruit+,4799

LOL! Now I get it. I have a Fruited Trifle recipe that I haven't made for years, but it called for kiwi, strawberries, and bananas. So maybe the bananas would work.

Australia Day sounds like a lot of fun..... And work!

I was trying to keep it "green and gold" but you wouldn't know why as I got too rambly and deleted half my post LOL. I was thinking out loud about Australia Day coming up as there is a (marketing-driven?? no doubt) tradition of having a lamb roast or a bbq, plus pavlova :)

Admittedly it is traditional to have strawberries but I was thinking a "green and gold" citrus one might be nice too. Then I thought it might be too tangy for some people, hence the bananas!!!

Biscay, I think a lemon Pavova sounds heavenly! Not sure about the bananas..... Maybe strawberries? <nodding and winking right back> LOL

I realised a bit too late this is Tuesday's thread so all my nodding and winking at LOB about doing lemony stuff has probably gone for nought, haha.

Anyway, I felt quite inspired so when I make it (maybe Australia Day since it's the traditional thing for sweets on that day - or if not then sometime this side of Christmas maybe) I'll be sure to report back with the result.

If you need a recipe for a fool proof pavlova (believe me, I need it!) let me know, happy to share!

Sounds heavenly to me. I love any dessert involving fruit, the more the better.

Biscay says:
Absolutely right, dharts - I could freeze those whites and although I knew about the ice cube tray idea for some reason that part about transferring them to a ziplock bag hadn't quite registered with me - excellent, a good incentive! I have too many containers with an unknown quantity of egg whites that I've thought "I'll write on that in a minute" - months later, I just resort to yet another anaemic omelette and swear I won't do it again LOL.

Although, I was only half tongue in cheek as I made my first ever pavlova (i.e. the soft meringue) a couple of weeks ago after all the custard I made for Christmas trifles - and it worked! I was so chuffed and I was a little bit serious - I'm actually looking for an excuse to prove it wasn't a fluke and your lemon butter might be just the thing. For that matter, I'm imagining.... yes.... a lemon pavlova... with LOB's lemon curd cream as the whipped cream layer on top, and some fresh passionfruit, kiwi slices and citrus compote concoction as the decoration... maybe some banana slices if it's toooo tangy after all that... what do you think?? :)

@ebook addict if I do a lot of driving I get major knots in my right shoulder. I go to my masseuse and she breaks up the knots. It hurts when she does it, but by the next day everything is wonderful. Same thing when I use the mouse too much little knots going up to my elbow. It hurts like the dickens when she does it, but afterwards I can one click to my heart's content.

@ Carla The only Dr. I had ever seen was Tom Baker then BBC came to India. I fell in love with David Tennant (although he gives me the willies in Harry Potter). I did pick up the Dalek book, I am waiting to be in a Sci Fi mood to read them.

You csn freeze those egg whites. Either mark the freezer bag with how many whites or use a plastic ice cube tray with one egg white per section to make handy egg white cubes that can later be bagged up in a freezer bag.

4NBahu mentioning reflexology reminds me of something someone taught me for easing nasal congestion years ago. It really works although sometimes only for a few minutes. Tuck your hand into the armpit on the side opposite the sinus you want to open up. So, if it's your right sinus, use your left armpit. Kind of push up into the armpit with the edge of your hand/fingers and hold that pressure for around 30 seconds. Within minutes, the sinus will open. Do the other side if both sides of your nose are congested.

Marilyn - I watched the baby video (I had seen it before, somewhere.) earlier, and I was laughing so hard my cat left my lap! That baby laughing is kind of like that old game where everyone would lie with his/her head on someone's stomach, and once one started laughing, everybody did.

And take care of yourself. If you need to go to the hospital, then you need to go to the hospital!

ebook addict,
Thank you. It was a difficult time. But, Dad had been diagnosed 18 months before and they hadn't given him that long. He was tired and ready. I had been staying nights at the hospital, since he didn't want to be alone. The night before hospice came he told me he was done. No more blood, no more platelets, no more anything. (it would have only prolonged things a week or two)

So while it tore your heart out, he was ready. (Mom and Sis not so much) It makes both the anniversary dates tough though.

Hii Courtney. I think we had tried that once, but when the thread wasn't posted at an early enough time, it kept falling to the early bird East Coasters who felt the need to keep starting the thread, which made for fewer West Coast willing starters. It doesn't matter to me if the new day thread is started early, I just hate to worry folks if a start gets behind. But that is just my perception of the start time estimations.
Edited to add missing words - I must be tired too!

Didn't Yid mention they were planning a move this week?? I could have sworn I saw that somewhere. Which could explain where she is.

Charlie-bird is missing, too. That worries me.

B J saw the shooting on news teasers and then what limited info my locals are getting. Worried about your family at first.
