Strawberries & cream

Once again this week I've been transfixed by Wimbledon 
which culminated yesterday with an amazing Men's Singles Final
 between Roger Federer and Novak Djokovik.
What better way to celebrate this incredible match 
than with the quintessential Wimbledon treat of strawberries and cream?
The strawberry tart came from our local patisserie and was the SP's choice.

I was in the mood for something a little fancier 
so quickly whipped up a glass of Eton Mess for my afternoon tea delight.

I couldn't resist adding a melt in the mouth raspberry macaron to my plate,
 well it was Wimbledon!
Eton Mess (traditionally served after an Eton College, Windsor cricket match)
 is the simplest dessert to make.
Simply wash & hull some ripe strawberries.
 Break up some light as a feather meringue into bite sized pieces.
Gently mix them together with whipped cream or creme fraiche et voila!
