lemon mousse and powder green confetti

lemon mousse e I hope you are having a nice weekend. It was Australia Day here yesterday, and today we skipped going into town with friends for some drinks (we're both so tired) and stayed home to watch films and take it easy. I made some lemon mousse, and as I have my Nikon back at last, I wanted to have a play to get used to it again. This lemon mousse is a variation on a Nigella recipe, and the salted pistachios, lemon-soaked strawberries and torn mint confetti is a pretty good combination, especially on this unusually cool summer day. I seem to have made rather a lot, though, so maybe I should ask our friends to come round to help us finish it? lemon mousse a lemon mousse c lemon mousse d lemon mousse b lemon mousse g lemon mousse f

How delectably scrumptious! Tony and I were just saying the other day how pistachios make almost anything taste even better.

Mmmmh! That looks delicious. Red, white and green is also a very dainty colour combination. I must make a similar dessert when we have fresh strawberries again in some months.

‪Marlee‬ : they were good... indulgent and good!



‪Sway‬ : of course, they're based on the vanilla mousse recipe on the Nigellisima app and I just changed a few small things :) I want to try a blogger's rec. of pepper syrup (they posted it on instagram) so I might just be doing this again soon, and will include the recipe :)



‪Selina‬ : haha I should have! SO MUCH MOUSSE



‪Vickie‬ : sooo good.


‪missfairchildscharmschool‬ : haha seriously I should have, I made more than two people should have! :D



‪Angelica‬ : healthy if you skip the mousse bit maybe, it's double cream and sugar ;D



‪Kitsune-kun‬ : I think it would be a good spring recipe, so not long to go now! x



‪Jessica Cangiano‬ : someone I know recently called pistachios the gold of the nut world and I agree! x



‪Miss Maple‬ yes, I love contrast colour in food... seriously! Easy on the eye food somehow feels nicer :)



‪Rebecca Jane‬ : they were nommed with haste.



‪Rebecca Jane‬ : haste and relish! I need to eat some plain fruit and salad to un-spoil my eating tastes ;)



‪vintageveggie‬ : truly was.



‪Nancy Wilde‬ : :D x


‪Jardine‬ : red + green in food just works, such a visual joy!



‪xStroutx‬ : hehe I am definitely going to make these again, and blog them :) x



‪Stefanie‬ it is, accidental discovery from a few months ago and I will definitely do it again :)
