Mini Butterscotch and Banana Pavlovas on RSG
I had to think long and hard about this weeks radio program on RSG. The recipe was the easy part. The pavlova was a request from our house guest, the banana and butterscotch sauce a quick fix (that turned out to be a stroke of genius) and the blog I turned to for a recipe was The Gorgeous Gourmet. The theme or shall I say the thought pattern behind this post was somewhat challenging, let me explain….or at least start at the beginning of my story!
To put it mildly, life has been somewhat challenging for my family and I in the last couple of months and we had to dig deep inside ourselves to find the strength and courage to take each and every day head on. I have come to learn(at last!) that if you embrace, rather than fight the tough times and just get on with fixing it, answers come quicker, solutions appear from nowhere and inspiration comes from the most unexpected places. Life lessons are not learned in school benches, life lessons are learned from falling down and getting up. Taking the highs and the lows and do it Nike style “Just do it!”
Friends of ours are staying with us at the moment, while she recovers from a cancer related operation she had last week here in Cape Town. Their courage, the will to get better, the positivity and their faith has been such an inspiration to me these last two weeks.
Fighting cancer the first time, must be so scary, fighting it the second time……takes great courage and that is what I have learned…So bottom line for me is this piece of advise:
3 bananas – peeled and sliced
