Christmas present

Christmas pav-making, originally uploaded by &Naomi.

Yeah.... we got the Kitchenaid for Christmas. And about time too! Both Hayden and I had been wanting one of these for a while (and we'd come pretty close to purchasing one a couple of times, most notably when our tiny tinny electric beaters finally gave out on us about a year ago) but we were really just looking for the right moment to commit. Or the right excuse to cough up the dough. Let's call it the right moment.

So the moment finally came for us a couple of days before we were due to spend Christmas for once at home, when we devised a Christmas menu which included pavlova. Just look at the glossy sheen on that meringue. We were never going to achieve that with the old op-shop rotary beaters, were we?
