More Bank Holidays = More Lazy Breakfasts 🙌🏻🍳🍳🍳 . . I popped my recipe for Mexican Eggs Benny up on the blog yesterday (as well as a little video of me making it on IGTV) - it's a simple, smoky twist on an old classic and would be perfect served up with some smashed avocado, bacon and salsa.
*Another* bank holiday? Oh ambassador, you're spoiling us... . . Hands up if you're old enough to get that reference. Come on, fellow granny, show yourself. 👵🏻🖤
"You're more tramp than lady." - my husband when I showed him this photo. 🍝 . . My absolute favourite pasta dish is Spaghetti Pomodoro, which most people (i.e. my husband) would label the most boring thing on the menu – but you know what? I love that it’s simple. Sweet tomato sauce, spaghetti, fresh basil and plenty of mozzarella (…the best bit!). I love it! It’s my go to whenever I’ve got a craving for some fresh pasta. Last week I levelled it up and added these deep fried tomato balls, and - mamma mia - they're something else. Crunchy coating, sweet tomato shell and molten mozzarella middle. SO GOOD. Find the recipe on www.thecardiffcwtch.com (link in bio) 🍝
Just ticking down the clock until there's nothing left of Monday but to get comfy and watch the final episode Game of Thrones... 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 . @bunglethegolden's not a fan, clearly.
(Granny-speak coming at'cha, fair warning... 👵🏻) The older I get the more I love those quiet, slow weekends spent around the house. You know, those Saturdays spent doing odd jobs in-between flopping onto the sofa with a cuppa and an episode (or ten) of... whatever. And those Sundays spent mucking out in the garden before heading off to the pub for a massive roast, and then polishing off the weekend in style in the bath. The wildest it got this weekend was driving to McDonalds for a Mint Aero McFlurry at 9pm (what a stunner) and ordering a bowl of extra pigs in blankets with my Turkey roast (classy). It's been brilliantly, beautifully boring, and I've loved every second. . . And now if you'll excuse me I need to go suck on a Werther's Original. 👵🏻👵🏻👵🏻
