I have always wanted to make marshmallows - just to see how it's done. Finally, I made some lovely pink and white marshmallows for Valentine's Day. I took them to a party last night and this is all that's left. They are good - melt in your mouth sweetness. Softer and lighter and with more flavor than bought ones.

I saved these few to put in hot chocolate.

They were actually quite simple to make. I'm going to try it again with some different recipes which I have gotten off the internet.

Arrival in Brighton

The first day I arrived in Brighton, I snapped this picture from the front of our flat. I am torn between tremendous guilt at leaving the COG to deal with the heavy snow in New England and pleasure at seeing sail boats.

Brighton Aquarium

The first full day that Daughter of and her family spent with me in Brighton, we went to the Aquarium. Which is a wonderful Victorian era aquarium, now operated by Sea Life. Miss T enjoyed herself very much, as did we all. I saw Sea Horses - very thrilling. Miss T loved the huge sea turtle, the crabs, and touching a sea anemone.
