Tuesday craft group tea break

:: I’m very lucky to be able to have lunch with my husband every day. With our budget we eat very little meat, but the baked squash with garlic cream sounds delicious!

:: Editing fairytales – something we should do for our boy too. Not just for girls, right?

:: Tuna sandwiches! Got to love them. Toasted bread, mayo (homemade) and lots of pepper for me. I can’t say I have a problem with sweetcorn though!

:: Fig newtons – don’t think I’ve had them, are they like fig rolls? Sarah’s version look amazing though, will try and make next week…

:: Chocolate caramel tartlets. Love the teeny, tiny size. Potential Christmas treat?

:: A very good friend of ours has just set off on an epic world journey with his girlfriend. I love his writing, you might enjoy it too.

:: This cake is similar to our chocolate guinness cake. Sharing simply because I loved the post, it made me miss my dad!

:: Twice baked potato pie – love that their daughter came up with the idea!

:: Aaaaah this is crazy! My mind is blown by these kids.

Wishing you a very happy weekend!

Gifts from a neighbour

:: Many congratulations to Lucy who is now, officially, a professional pâtissière! The exam sounds terrifying…

:: I love seeing London through the eyes of tourists :) Lovely photos from a lovely blog.

:: This is so true! The chocolate aisles are amazing but far too tempting. I just have to skip them altogether ;) Instead we go to see the cheese…

:: An amazing kitchen makeover! Not to everyone’s taste, but I think it’s FAB. Especially love how so much of it has been recycled from other people – one person’s trash is another’s treasure, right?

:: Fig, Apricot and Marscapone Tart -yes please! I’m sure there’s a fig tree in the village that would give us a hand with this.

:: I REALLY want sushi after seeing this review.

:: How to save tomato seeds – helpful next year, I think.

:: This would be perfect for lunch or dinner right now. I love Ottolenghi. It’s just criminal to put the oven on at the moment.

Hope you are all having a great weekend!





This week

I almost didn’t meet my first goal!

Next week I will have to focus a little harder in those spare moments when baby is sleeping, maybe leave the folding of nappies or that much needed shower for a later time, when Shake is home ;)

20120422-124759.jpg – as of this week we are smiling!

There are a few items that have caught my bleary eyes during the week that I thought I would share:

Our friends made us a variation of this cake - delicious! I’m dying to make my own and will share with you when I do.

With our impending move, I love reading about facts and figures on France. I especially like point 36!

In the past 3 weeks we have been to two weddings here, with baby(!), both of which were beautiful and ridiculously happy days :) The food was extremely impressive, seasonal with high quality ingredients. I especially enjoyed the desert for the ladies – elderflower jelly with seasonal berries, lemon posset, meringue and vanilla ice cream, served in a Le Parfait preserving jar (the men had deconstructed millionaire’s shortbread, in case you were wondering).

As a new mother, lists such as this catch my eye, although they don’t always make me feel better!

Wishing you a lovely week
