The pohutukawas are blooming – it must be summer. We’ve had our traditional first cases of sunburn this weekend at the Christmas parade up the local high street (as everyone gradually starts to realise that the sun has hit summer time strength and sunblock is now a necessity). It’s therefore time to start thinking about the Christmas day menu. Pavlova is always a winner – this is Joy Coyle’s mum’s recipie (posted on pinterest – thankyou!) that is remarkably similar to my inherited one – might just give it a try this year…!
