Vegan Meringues Using Aqua Faba

The great thing about baking meringues is that you can leave them in the oven to do their own thing, while you get on with other chores. This recipe for vegan meringues comes from my good friend Lorraine who blogs over at Not Quite Nigella.

Despite not going into the office I have still been working. My first task of the day is to get the bed made. Then it is shower time, and after that, the bathroom gets cleaned. I feel that you cannot get clean in a dirty bathroom and so this is an everyday task. Once I am dressed I head for the kitchen. I am not a huge fan of loading the dishwasher after dinner and so this is done in the morning. After breakfast has been made and enjoyed I will wash the dishes that need doing by hand, and set the dishwasher on to do its thing. I also give the kitchen a good clean so that I start my day with it looking pristine. My other daily chore is to get the toilets cleaned.

Not my favourite task of the day for sure but one that has to be done. Mondays mean changing linen, and putting that and the towels into the machine to wash. On a Tuesday our laundry gets done. The one thing I will not do is iron. Thankfully Dave does not mind the fact that I cannot iron and most of my clothes go from the washing line straight into my cupboard. As for the items that do need ironing, well, I have a domestic goddess who does that for me. I think that no matter where in the world we lived, I would have to find someone to do my ironing. Is there any one household chore you do not like doing?

  3. I don’t do much housework during the week as we have a full time domestic. I do the bathrooms, etc over weekends. I also do them everyday. I don’t mind ironing but don’t do it often.

    1. I have given up on mopping as the fires have not stopped and the floor gets full of ash as soon as you are done cleaning!
