I’m on a roll

I’m cooking on gas today people. Figuratively speaking of course, we’re actually all electric in this house, bit of a bind during a power cut to be honest but now I’m just babbling!!

 

So, today I’ve made blueberry and cranberry muffins (recipe up soon), I’ve been liaising with the designer for the labels for the cosmetic company that my mum set up and I’m now on board with, we’re so close to getting everything launched in a huge way, I’m so so excited! Even our logo makes me smile! Thursday we go to see the web designer, eeeeeeeeek! Of course I’ll be sure to keep you all in the loop because, well, I guess a shameless plug never did anyone any harm, and I genuinely love what I do and think it’s nice to share with the world 🙂 and, WE CAN SHIP INTERNATIONAL BABAAAAY!  We’re hoping to sort an Etsy shop out soon too. Whoop!

 

I’ve been hunting out cosy soup recipes too, you know the kind that makes you all warm and fuzzy inside. My mum made me the most amazing green lentil soup yesterday, which was red oddly enough, and I’d finished it by the time she’d sat down for hers haha next time she makes it I’ll be sure to post the recipe for you, I know you’ll all love it as much as I did. I had the blended version because I can’t eat the skins on things but mum had hers chunky.

 

Well, there’s no stopping me today, I have some energy from somewhere and I need to get as much done as possible before I crash haha

 

XOXO

The best laid plans….

Well, you know how on the last post I mentioned a few ideas I’d had for dates through the year with my boyfriend, and top of the list was a night out at a Comedy Club. I thought this was a pretty cool idea and really unique, until last night. You know that moment when your heart sinks, or at least thinks, CRAP thank God I never booked it, well last night was one of those moments. There we were sat watching Live at the Apollo, laughing away, me thinking smugly that this would be a great date night when the boyfriend says ‘I’ve never fancied seeing anything like this live, it’d just be boring’. Yup. There it was. So my amazing and unique idea just got flushed down the drain like one of those spiders that doesn’t pay rent therefore has no right to be in your house let alone the bottom of your bath. Boooo.

 

So, whilst pondering over what food I want to start making when I feel better again and not like I’m swallowing a dozen tiny hedgehogs, on Pinterest of course, I came across a crockpot bbq beer chicken sandwich. This may just have to replace the date night OUT and become a date night IN. If nothing else it’ll be an experience for him having my cook because, well, I really can’t cook. Though last summer I made a nice stew (yes in summer, yes we nearly passed out from such a hot meal and yes I wish I’d made a salad but this is what happens when I have brainwaves and decide to cook.)

 

Here’s the link, now how amazing does that look and sound? I think I’ll make it April time when I get the kitchen to myself at home because mum’s away, it can be a surprise for him haha. Now I’m off to feed my addiction, AGAIN, for the rest of the night on Pinterest and plan dessert!

 

One date night out of 12 is a start right??

 

Ciao for now xoxo
