Up and away!



It's all official. We're heading to Canada and the USA in July/August this year! Gib and I are going to his best high school friend's wedding in, do some hiking, shopping, train trips, sight seeing, I'm going to present some of the awesome work I've been doing for my PhD to another lab doing similarly awesome work, attend a conference, visit friends and relatives. There is so much stuff that I need to get sorted before then. I have to learn how to make a Pavlova. So much data I need to analyse. So much freaking paperwork too. It's huge.

I sent Possum Magic to our friends in Washington, who have a young son, and they said they liked the book but had no idea what Pavlova was. I know how to eat them really well, but have no idea how to make them. That's going to need to be rectified before I go. Top priority.

But I'm looking forward to the holiday. Seeing my wonderful relatives. And fabric shopping.

Making a pav is easy. Easier than some cook books will tell you.
A big meringue, then cream and whatever fruit you like on top. You can even take a "Pavlova" egg or two with you to make it super easy. You should be able to get them into the country. Have you seen them? Buy them at the supermarket where food colour and cake bits and bobs are.

Oh how exciting!!!!

As a former Canadian resident, I can confidently say that said "Pavlova Eggs" are the way to go. I managed to clear them through customs into North America.

Even I've made a pav and I'm a cooking cretin! :-)
Just make a big meringue.
