Today is one of those days where I don’t really have much to write about. Apart from the shopping expedition on Saturday, we didn’t do much over the weekend. I made the base for what’ll become Milo ice-cream. I also attempted a mojito slushy thing; but it had too much booze in it so it didn’t freeze properly. Oh well; live and learn. It was still very drinkable though!
I planted some Curcubitace (pumpkin, watermelon, spanspek*, gem squash** and cucumbers) in a little bed at the top of the garden. There’s plenty of room up there to let the vines sprawl around.
I also made some meringues. But my oven, because it’s a gas oven, doesn’t run cool enough to bake them properly. So they tend to brown or burn a little on the bottom; but they are still gooey in the middle. Not that there’s anything wrong with that…
*I think they’re also called ‘honey melons’ or ‘cantaloupe’. They are my absolute favourite!
**Little round squash’s. Green skin, sweet yellow flesh. Delicious steamed with a bit of butter and black pepper.
