Fi and I were having a bit of a chat the other day about this here blogalog and brainstorming ideas for the next set of posts. We always like to have a few things in the works ready to go so it helps to chat things over and get planning. You’ve probably noticed that Fi always ends up writing more things, it’s because she’s more organised (or I’m lazy) but I’m trying to improve myself here – hence the chattering and planning! Anyways we came upon the idea of a monthly round up of any food related shenanigans – eating out, new recipes, new shops discovered, that sort of thing. So welcome to the first in the series…
3 new recipes tried – Fruit smoothies, Red Velvet Cheesecake squares (coming soon), Chewy Chocolate Chip and Peanut Butter Cookies
3 doughs made – pizza dough, a seeded loaf and a plain white loaf
2 brunches – Riding House Cafe and Tom’s Kitchen at Somerset House
10 meals out – including Yo Sushi!, Zizzi’s, Leon and The Diner
5 new dining experiences – Tom’s Kitchen, The Seahorse, Cafe at The Medicine Garden, The Riding House Cafe and The Wolseley.
Okay so it looks like we’ve eaten out a lot this month – but I’m blaming that on our birthday fun as 7 of those meals out were part of birthday celebrations. Let’s hope May isn’t the same as I’m not completely sure my bank balance can handle it!
We also seem to be a bit low on the new recipes front, again I’m blaming that on the birthday too – any one else seeing a theme here? We do plan on getting these newly mentioned recipes written up and on the blog soon.
