Dave and I used to go for a walk along the beach every night and then stop and have a drink at one of the local establishments facing the sea, before heading back home. But as we don’t seem to have that much time at the moment, we only go for walks on the odd occasion. However, when we are overseas this is a nightly ritual. We will sit in a piazza at a table with the locals and enjoy a drink and a few snacks, before heading back to cook dinner where ever we are staying. The other day the Western Cape recorded its highest ever temperature. Dave came home to fetch me and we drove to the beach and had a long swim. Once we had cooled down we walked to have a drink at a local restaurant. The outside tables are very popular and we were lucky enough to get one as we arrived. A couple were just leaving and so we could sit down and look out over the sea. Not 2 minutes after we arrived, an older couple arrived. They wanted to sit down and have a drink and so we invited them to share our table. They were so surprised by this offer. We got to talking, and the gentleman commented how sweet we were to make the offer. To me, it was just something that should be the norm. A drink shared with strangers can be really quite interesting. Something else sweet that made my day were these sugar free meringues. I was given a jar of Canderel spoon for spoon and as I had not paid for it I decided to experiment with making meringues. I always have left over egg whites as I make a lot of ice cream and so using the egg whites in experiments is never a problem. I was really pleased with how these turned out. I wanted to make split colour meringues but did not want to pay the exorbitant price for a special piping bag. I carefully placed the white meringue into half of the bag, and the pink into the other half and the result was perfect.

What a treat for that older couple to meet you and Dave. You are right; it should be the norm. Your meringues look beautiful!
Thanks Cin, and thanks for the great question on facebook 🙂
I like sharing tables sometimes – it can be interesting (but not always)! Love these little meringues, they look so pretty.
Thanks Tanya. And yes, sometimes sharing a table can be not so good 🙂
Isn’t that nice of you! We like dining with others and with strangers would certainly be a fun experience 😀
It can be indeed!

Me and you had the same idea for meringues… to make them lol. Yours looks amazing and I love the sugar free aspect. So many of my friends only eat sugar free. Copying this recipe.

Thanks Sally 🙂
I also really enjoy chatting to strangers. Your meringues look wonderful, and so pretty. 🙂
Sometimes you can meet the most interesting people, can’t you?
I love your delicate sugar free meringues. They are so delicate and pretty with your white/pink combination. Very clever Tandy. Now I have to google “Canderel spoon for spoon”. It was sweet of you to offer to share your table but I agree, some of the best conversations can be with total strangers in public places 🙂
Thank you for such a lovely compliment, and the visit Merryn 🙂
I’m with you, a shared drink with strangers is a great thing to do. I always find it amazing how many times you will find they know someone who knows someone who you know!! I have no idea what the ‘spoon for spoon’ is but will google it. These meringues are just darling Tandy x
Jan, the world is such a small place and that often happens that we meet people who know people we know 🙂
I have never made meringue without sugar before. Very cool! And oh so pretty! 🙂
Thanks Anna 🙂
