Precious Lou Lou's

I had the opportunity to attend this marvellous Vintage Fair in Norwich this past Sunday and oh boy did it exceed my expectations!!

It took place in the beautiful St.Andrews Hall, organised by Lou Lou's Vintage Fair, a company founded in 2007 and voted the best vintage fair 2013, 2014 and 2015, so I was not surprised by how great it was.

The room was filled with beautiful items, clothes, shoes and even a pretty beauty parlour where you could get pampered!

A Hall full of vibrant colours and textures that can take you back to different decades at once, where you can easily get carried away shopping till you drop, which is not a problem as prices were very generous and one of these beautiful items could be yours with no harm done to your finances!! <3

Yogurtlicious

Easy, fast and mess free dessert. Appreciated by all here at home and the calories are also acceptable!!

 

All you need for this masterpiece are the following;

1 natural Greek yogurt

1 pack of jelly ( I chose strawberry)

250gr of fresh strawberries

250ml of heated water

250ml of current water

You start by oiling the 250ml of water in a pan, I did it in the electric tea pot. Mix the whole of the jelly powder until it's totally dissolved.

Mix in the yogurt and make sure you get and even mixture, I chose to mix it with the whisker. Then add the 250ml of water and put it in the fridge to solidify.

For this recipe you can also chop the strawberries finely and add them in the mixture but I kept them for decoration only.

If you are making this dessert for more than 4 people you can always double up the ingredients and voilà.

Make this jelly the night before, that way you are certain to have a nice and wobbly dessert for nest day.

 

A really cool trick to unmold the jelly, it's to place it in warm water for 10 seconds and then it's ready to be turned around, not running the risk of it braking.

Mum's Pavlova

As delicious as it looks, made with a lot of love!!

I managed to fetch the recipe so I could share it with you ha ha.

 What you will need for the base:

 

250g caster sugar
1 tsp white wine vinegar
1 tsp cornflour
1 tsp vanilla extract
4 egg whites


You pre heat the over at 150 degrees.

In a bowl, with a hand mixer you whisk the whites until they are fluffy adding the sugar slowly as you whisk the whites until it looks glossy. Whisk in the vinegar, cornflour and vanilla.

Then prepare a tray with a baking sheet and draw with a pencil a circle. That's where you will spread the whisked whites leaving the sides higher then the insides.

Bake it for an hour and let the pavlova cool down inside the oven.

 

For the topping you will need:

500g strawberries, hulled and halved
3 tbsp icing sugar
350ml double cream

When the meringue is cool, chop 100g of the strawberries and place them together with 2tbsp of the icing sugar in a food processor. Blitz till it's smooth.

Whip the cream with the remaining icing sugar and spread over the meringue.

Place the remaining fruit on top of the cream and finally add the sauce over the whole Pavlova.

Saudade

Today I honestly miss my late summer afternoons at Cervejaria Ferradura in Lagos, Algarve, south of Portugal. A place where beer is nice and cold and sea food as fresh as it gets.

A typical place screaming tradition, where the walls are decorated with antique memorabilia, mainly related with old football games and fisher man gear.

I have been going back there for 6 years now, and I hope to maintain this tradition with the Mr.. We never get disappointed, the sea food is amazing, the owners (husband and wife) are very welcoming and the environment...well the environment, you will have to go there and experience it for yourself.

Hurry up Summer <3

 

Hoje sinto saudade das belas tardes passadas na Cervejaria Ferradura em Lagos, no Algarve. Uma relíquia, onde a cerveja se serve bem fria e o marisco acabadinho de apanhar.

Um tasquinha típica Portuguesa onde as paredes estão cobertas de posters e acessórios de pescadores antigos, assim com garrafas bem Vintage!!

Há 6 anos que Eu e o Mr. "picamos o ponto" neste sitio e assim esperamos continuar. Nunca deixa a desejar, ficamos sempre satisfeitos e com muita saudade. Um sitio a visitar sem sombra de duvida.

Que venha o Verão <3
