To cap it all here are a few recipes of the festive Jubilee lunch that I made which are super simple and rather yummy -if you can slice and butter bread and crumble meringues you are half way there...
A Scandinavian Smorgasbord Dish : prawn and dill torte as a main lunch dish and Eton Mess as a pudding.
Here is the finished Scandinavian prawn and dill torte.
For the torte you start with a whole loaf of sliced white bread..
Take a nice cake stand to put your torte on - remember, you are trying to make it look like a decorative cake- but then a savoury one..
Then spread some of the cottage cheese plus blue cheese mixture on the slices.
Then go on building layer..( = white bread + mayonaise + cottage-cheese/ blue cheese mixture + prawns)..
Go on for about 5 or 6 layers, then put a thick layer of the cottage cheese/blue cheese mixture on the top..
..this will make it possible to twist one half of the slice one way, and the other part, the other way.
Decorate the top of the torte with these twisted slices, in the shape of an X.
For your pudding, Eton Mess, all you need is strawberries, whipped cream and meringues and some nice glass coupes..
Crumble the meringues..then put a layer on the bottom of your glass coupes.
..and to top it off, put a strawberry on the top..
..and with the left over cream and strawberries I whipped up this..
...of which I ate loads to give me energy to clear up ..this..( groan) ..
Have a great rest of the week!!
