meringue starts with m




Using her new lime green Nintendo DS(that would be DS #5... thank you extended warranty!)and its cooking game, Laura made a pavlova... which is a meringue shell topped with a sweet cream and beautiful fruit. An Australian dessert. It was... as delicious as it was beautiful. And I loved that she was busy in the kitchen... cooking away. One and a while she called out for a hand, but she really did it on her own. I was impressed... probably because she was not daunted by the thought of trying something completely new... and not once did it travel through her mind that she might not be able to do it. Me? I would have leafed right on by that page in my cookbook. She is growing up in so many ways... and her confidence is growing right along with her. And I am thrilled.

Glad I am not missing out on A to Z Monday! I'm so glad Jen puts up with me! Happy Monday.

Wow! Other than me and my good friend Jocelyn from Australia, I have never seen anyone else make a Pavlova. Isn't it the best? You should be proud of your daughter- the tend to fall in the oven. Hers looks scrumptious!

That is so fantastic, it takes such courage to try new things... especially in the kitchen! :)

hi Dawn-

my daughter wants that cooking thing for the DS too--so I might get a meal or two out of it???? That ups it in my book.

That dessert was surely impressive. Way to go!

So cool to have a little chef living with you. I have NEVER been able to make a descent meringue. She's talented!
