What a lovely weekend it was. Not just because this was what was promised – and what we got – it felt like spring had finally come and it was beautiful.
Yes, I have only recently worked out how to do screen grabs on this computer because it’s fecking awkward and I’m proud of my new ability… and it’s been cold and raining again today, which wasn’t forecast. But I’m trying to be positive here… 🙂
Also great about the weekend was Saturday night. No Jagerbombs this time but there were plenty of alternatives, including a sambuca at about 1am, which I can confirm is not a good idea 🙂
I’m not quite sure what was going on at this point but it’s a good thing it was fairly early and that bar was still quite empty…
But it was all good, although it’s fair to say I was struggling slightly yesterday 🙂
Carrying on the postitive theme, here are some things I’ve been loving lately:
Breakfast apple crumble with plain soya yoghurt and blueberries is perfect in the mornings. And I’m also loving the fact that blueberries are cheaper now they’re (almost) back in season – looking forward to strawberries and raspberries too.
Something else in season now that I can’t get enough of:
Fresh new asparagus – the woody overpriced stuff in supermarkets in winter just can’t compete.
On a slightly less positive note, I managed to forget to put the bowl of my new ice cream maker in the freezer on Saturday night and as it has to be frozen 24 hours in advance – I couldn’t play with my new toy yesterday. Hmmph. Flicking through the book my mum gave me though, there are definitely a couple of ideas that jump out – roasted banana flavour, chopped caramelised nuts mixed in… pralined oats?!
Go on then, don’t mind if I do 🙂
Have a great week.
