Foodie Friday-Recipe (a day late)

I have no idea how I forgot to post this yesterday! But better late than never :)

So this is Pavlova, quite possibly my favorite dessert ever! It is really popular in Ireland and when I am there I make sure to get my fill of it, but when I am home I like to make it on occasion as well.

It is beyond simple to make, so delicious and a real crowd pleaser. Its impressive and would not be a bad idea to make this for guests some time!

Yep! Thats me in Ireland eating Pavlova!

Here is the recipe:

For the Meringue:
Preheat oven to 250degrees- yes 250!

6 Large Egg Whites
1 Cup of Sugar
1/2 teaspoon of real vanilla extract
1 tablespoon of cornstarch

In a blender mix the egg whites until they form soft peaks, then slowly add the sugar, the vanilla and the cornstarch until the egg whites are shiney and stiff peaks. Then put the meringue onto a parchment paper lined cookie sheet, making an oval shape about 12 inches long. Make sure the edges are higher than the center, because that is where the whipped cream and fruit will go. Then bake at 250degrees for 60-70minutes, turn off the oven, open the door slightly and let the meringue cool inside the oven.

For the whipped cream:
1 cup of whipping cream
1 tablespoon of sugar
1/2 teaspoon of real vanilla extract

Mix on high until there are soft peaks.

For the topping:
I enjoy just strawberries but a nice mixture of strawberries, kiwi, madarian oranges and small apple pieces also taste amazing.

Place the whipped cream and fruit in the middle of the meringue and serve!

Stephanie who left this great tip!:

I may be the only one who didn't know this but I hate the membrane/skin left when I cut up citrus fruit...but if you cut away the skin and membrane and then cut between the membranes you get PERFECT pieces of citrus fruit! They just slide right out...made my day : )

Thrifty Thursday: Rite Aid Trip

I am slightly frustrated about my trip to Rite Aid this week, they had no American Greeting Cards priced under $1.99, and I thought there was an UP+ Reward printing for biore products but there was not! So now I have no UP+ Rewards for next week, but that is ok!

Biore Pore Perfect Deep Cleansing Pore Strips , 14 nose strips   Biore Pore Perfect Blemish Fighting Ice Cleanser, Cools & Clears , 6.7 fl oz (198 ml)  John Frieda Root Awakening Shampoo - Strength Restoring

Biore Cleanser: $7.99 used the B1G1 coupon from 3/7SS
John Frieda Root Awakening Shampoo: $6.99 used $2 coupon from 3/20?
3 American Greeting Cards $1.99 each, used $3off3 from AG website and $1off3 from RA circular
Used $3 off $15 from last weeks RA reciept
Used $4 in UP+Rewards
Paid $9.21 out of pocket
No Up+Rewards :(  

Now as it stands after 10 weeks of Rite Aid shopping:
Total amount of products bought=$271.96
Total amount out of pocket=$45.39
Total amount of Up rewards=$57
Total Up rewards for next week=$0

Thrifty Thursday: CVS Trip

So there was nothing I really had to have at CVS this week, except for some paper towels. First a few weeks ago I broke down and bought toilet paper for the first time since moving out on my own 5 years ago, since then I've just stolen it from my parents house :) same for paper towels. But I figured since I can get them for a lot less than my dad I would buy them my self!

Sparkle Paper Towels with Thirst Pockets, Prints 8 rolls

So this week I bought:
1- 8pack of Sparkle Paper Towels $5.99 got back $1ECB
3- Peanut M&Ms B2G1Free 99cent each, used $1 off 2 coupon from 3/20SS
Used $4.50 ECB I had from last week
Paid $3.11 Out of Pocket
Got back $1 ECB :/

Now as it stands after 4 weeks of CVS shopping:
Total amount of products bought=$52.48
Total amount out of pocket=$19.39
Total amount of ECB received=$14.58
Total ECB's for next week=$1.00

*On the plus side I just got a $25 CVS giftcard from MyPoints- so instead of paying out of pocket I will be paying with that, and since the giftcard was free it won't count :)
