Mess of Eton

Bloggie friends!!

You are all so wonderful that I made a big batch of Eton Mess in your honour!

Eton Mess – mash up some strawberries with a dash of sugar, a drop of liqueur, mix with crumbled up meringue and add a good dollop of low fat soya single cream alternative.

H-E-A-V-E-N in a bowl.

Charlie says: I give you more evil eye.


Today the lovely Ann Best launches her memoir In the Mirror. I’ve ordered my PRINT copy and look forward to receiving it. Yay!

Have a peaceful day!

Eton Mess is my absolute favourite pud! Thank you, Kitty.

Forget all the other ingredients, meringue is quite healthy as deserts go, so I shall eat it with virtual unadulterated pleasure.

First off, just getting caught up from being sick...good for you for getting your poetry published. I am so proud of you!
and what praytell is a Mess of Eton; never heard of it but if it is sugary, I'm certain I'd love it :)

Guinevere said...

Thanks for the heads up about Ann Best's book! Also? Eton Mess sounds delish. I'm just eating chocolate cookies tonight, I'd rather be having strawberries with liquor and ice cream! Nom!

Brian said...

Eton Mess is my familys favourite dessert and one will be thinking wistfully of until summer's strawberries arrive once more. Congrats on the haiku success - nice work!!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Never heard it called that!
And how can Charlie give us the evil eye when his eyes are closed?

KarenG said...

Eton whatever sounds really good! And hooray for Ann Best! May her memoir sell a zillion copies. I read an ARC and it is good! Very engaging and hard to put down!

Katnip Lounge said...

Not heard of Mess of Eton before. Glad I'm now moving in the right circles ;O) even if it does mean getting Charlie's evil eye now and then :O)

Donna Hosie said...

Nigella Lawson has a great recipe for Eton Mess.

d'Artagnan Rumblepurr said...

Charlie, you're such a wise over-seer!

Nicole MacDonald said...

Hannah and Lucy said...

That Eton Mess sounds delicious but we're afraid our mum eats them as fast as she washes them so they wouldn't make much "mess"!!
Hello Charlie we hope you have a good day.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Fuzzy Tales said...

Why don't we live closer? I'd happily "sample" everything you bake/cook.

Clarissa Draper said...

I could use a piece of heaven right now.

Also, looking forward to reading Best's book on Kindle.

SAS....Sammy, Andy and Shelly said...

Love to both of you.

Samantha Vérant said...

YUM! I want me some Eton Mess. Right now!

Marg said...

That Eton mess sounds yummy. I might have to try that.HOpe you have one wonderful day.

The Chair Speaks said...

Err, is Charlie trying to flatten the mouse?

Our human did not feel like blogging this week. We may be back next week, hopefully.

Felted House said...

I do wish I was there to eat it with you (and Charlie, is he having some too?) - Leo says he thinks he'd like it, he's fairly obsessed with food. xx

notesfromnadir said...

Eton Mess -- what a funny name! Sounds really good. However, I have a decadent suggestion: Double Devon Cream.

By the way, I discovered there is a difference between clotted cream & Double Devon Cream! Here's the link if you or anyone's interested:

Clotted Cream vs Double Devon Cream

Talli Roland said...

Oh, I love love LOVE Eton Mess!

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Wow I have never heard of anything quite like Eton Mess but is sounds delicious!

And Charlie, we hope you don't need to be giving the evil eye too much - you are too cute for that!

Jackee said...

Yum! Charlie looks like an Eygptian statue. :o)

Have a wonderful day, my friend!

Summer Ross said...

That sounds so Yummy! I just stopped by Ann's blog to wish her congrats.

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Jan was drooling, right up until you mentioned low fat soya single cream alternative. We don't know what that is but a big dollop of whipped cream is what we were expecting. :)

The Golden Eagle said...

Eton Mess sure sounds nice! :)

Congrats to Ann!

KarenMcG said...

Well, I imagine Charlie's giving you that evil eye 'cause you didn't give him any of the mess stuff!

Theresa Milstein said...

Sounds delicious.

How nice of you to order Ann's book. I looked for it on Amazon US today, but it wasn't there.

Today is the official launch of the 100 Stories for Queensland paperback. Jodi Cleghorn sent updates on Facebook until 2am Australian time. In both US and UK, we made great progress on rankings. You should check out Amazon!

LTM said...

Holy!... that looks awesome. And look at Charlie. He looks ready to fight me for my bowl... back, Charlie! :D

delish~

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Oh my! An Elton Mess sounds so good! I am a meringue and strawberry lover and a bit of liqueur makes it all sound heavenly!

Rene said...
