July 5, 1992--A Sunday Surprise

[You never know when we may show up no matter where in the world you live. This was a fun surprise.]

Sunday, July 5, 1992

              We surprise our friends who pastor a small church in Croyden Park, a suburb of Adelaide. We are asked to dinner (which I find out later was supplied by someone in the congregation who knew the pastor’s wife wouldn’t have cooked for more than two). While we are visiting, someone from the church calls and insists that we need to return in the evening. They have quickly planned a fellowship and are preparing the favorite Australian dessert—pavlova.
              The evening is filled with an exchange of culture. We learn so much more about the people than we would have as just tourists. The pavlova is scrumptious. Usually a meringue shell with a sweet creamy filling topped with strawberries, mango and kiwi. We discover there are many different versions of the dessert and we have to sample each of them. Thank goodness we aren’t asked which we like best. They were all good.

[My favorite pavlova is a meringue with a berry topping. I found an easy recipe for it on Allrecipes.https://www.allrecipes.com/recipe/12126/easy-pavlova/]
