Don't knock it 'til you've tried it people!

In awe....

My beautiful boy.

Sometimes I just have to stop and breathe when I think how blessed I am to be your Mum.

Tuesday goes a bit like this.....

Hooray for Tuesdays!
Tuesday are fun because it's the day I have my
Abel & Cole vege box delivered and I do a weeks worth of menu planning.

Today I had a special surprise - a free litre of organic farm fresh milk delivered in it's own little box, wrapped in lambs wool to keep it cool. How cute is that!?

I would absolutely recommend menu planning and having a weekly veg box delivered.
It is saving our family around £50 per week. We end up having a variety of fab meals and nothing is wasted or thrown away.

So, this weeks menu looks something like this......

Tuesday - Chicken & veg pie and a salad.
Wednesday - Leek & potato soup with ciabatta bread.
Thursday - Roasted beetroot, artichoke & feta salad.
Friday - Ginger & chilli beef with stirfried vegetables.
Saturday - Roast chicken with cabbage & apple coleslaw.
Sunday - Lovely leftovers!
Monday - Pan fried trout with roasted beets and horseradish cream fraiche.

Happy happy tummies!

Pale moon light

These images seem to have been kissed by the pale moonlight......
Max and I spent a good 20 minutes staring at the full moon tonight.
He was trying to jump up and grab it, so cute!

Just looking at these photographs makes me feel serene.......ahhhhhhhh.

Hugh Love

It's been creeping up on me so slowly, I didn't even notice it happening......
Hugh love!
Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall to be precise.

It started off with a bit of bread baking, a bit of soup making.....
Then last week it was the big 'Fish Fight' and my admiration for the fellow is sky high!
I agree, he is a bit scruffy, squidgy and specky (but then aren't we all?!)
But there is just something about his pure passion for food, animals, fish, the land and people that is so engaging.

If you haven't already, I urge you to join the Fish Fight, buy this book and definitely try this delicious recipe for lamb shoulder with merguez spices.
We cooked it on Saturday night and it was sublime!

Prepping the lamb with the merguez spices.

Six hours later.....pure melting lamby goodness!

Inspiration for a Thursday....

Oh my! This workspace is just all kinds of fabulous!
Just as well I am married to a builder.

I love a good pinboard!

My very core is crying out for soft spring colours! Ahhhhhhh.....

A lovely little vignette.....
