The things I have been crushing on for the month of February…
So I have been searching for the perfect point. There are some gorgeous ones out there at the moment, but I find a lot of them either A. squash all of my toes so that my foot retains the shape of the shoe when I take them off, B. are so expensive that I would need to re-mortgage my apartment before buying them, and unfortunately I have too much stuff to live in a shoe, or C. Look like old woman shoes. And nobody likes that. Apart from old women.
This is a meal I cook at least a couple of times a month. One of Jay’s friends cooked it for him once, then Jay recreated it for me because he like it so much and ever since then we have been having it on a regular basis! One of my favourite things about it is that the flavours are so versatile, the base ingredients work so well together that you can experiment with adding extra veg or different meat and its always super tasty. We actually just cooked this for my parents this week, but we added loads of stir fry veg and made some rice to go with it; needless to say it was a huge hit. The other great thing about this is its so easy to make a huge batch, I often make about 6 servings at a time and freeze a couple of them. It makes such a great mid-week meal when you cant be bothered cooking but wanting something really delicious; I just take it out in the morning and reheat it in the evening. Super yummy. Read More
After recently booking a holiday to Florida for April this year, I have been trying to have more nights and weekends in to save money for my ‘Florida Fund’. This weekend however, turned out to be an exception. With a pre-weekend pub lunch, a spontaneous night out with old friends, some belated birthday surprises and a trip to Leeds, it turned out to be everything but quiet (in a great way)
So (after much convincing) I have decided to start a blog. I have been saying I would for so long, and now, sitting in bed with a glass of red wine on a chilly February night, it is finally the perfect time. I am very excited to have a place to keep all of my thoughts, ideas and memories. Every time I cook up a new dish, buy a bunch of new things for my home, splurge on new pieces for my wardrobe, or spend an evening taking photographs, I always wish I had a place to document it… so here it is!
My first post will be an introduction to myself with a ‘10 facts’ list. Because everyone loves lists, right? (And if they don’t then they should! I love a good list.)
