Perfect .........Today we are *doing lunch* with our Dear Friends Lorraine & Vic.
WHO KNEW we could now buy *Create a Jelly*................................................not me.
Jelly with Fruit - such a fond memory from my childhood..... the smell and the beautiful clarity of it sitting there in its glass bowl for after Dinner - when i arrived home from School on a hot summers afternoon.
Does this mean that i can create any flavour Jelly i want?
Colour it any colour i want?..........................Indeed - that's what it meant.
Standing in the aisle i had flavours and colours running through my head -.
Its Summer - how could i go past Cherries - and perhaps Strawberries.
After all, they are in abundance at this time of the year - and so full of flavour.
Seriously - ones options are unlimited.
Yes, yes, i know i could always pop some Gelatin into a bowl - soak and yadda yadda yadda but this is just so easy when one is on the hop
**** Shall post my Cherry & Strawberry Jelly with Rose water at the end of this Bog.
Strawberry Mousse - with simmered Strawberries swirl o top.
Turkish Delights - How could you not love the colour.
Mini Strawberry & Cream Ice-creams.
Chocolate flowing over swirled Meringue.
And of course - White Flowers in White Jugs on our Table
Refreshing Mojito Summer Cocktail
With Seedless Grapes - fresh Mint - Champagne and a dash of Lemonade
Murphy's Lore - Autumn Red.
Laughter - Discussions - and good friendship around the Table.......
Who could ask for a better day.
Always a joy to have them come visit.
