on wednesday morning i caught up with 'the delicious miss dahl', a new programme on bbc2 which was absolutely fantastic! i can totally relate to her approach to food, and i loved the way it was structured into feelings. but most importantly, i thought the food was amazing and looked delicious! i especially loved how she fantasizes about buffalo mozzarella and how sensual it is to tear it up in your hands...
♥ honey stir fry with buckwheat soba noodles
♥ here she is with her very own homemade dorset apple cake, yum!
♥ buckwheat porridge with a mug of green tea and an almond, raspberry and banana smoothie
♥ buffalo mozzarella (sophie dahl style) for lunch, with la vialla olive oil, rustic wholemeal baguette and a little side salad
♥ this made for a very delicious lunchtime treat...
♥ in nigel slater's book real fast puddings there's a recipe for chocolate chestnut puddings, which is completely amazing, and incredibly quick and easy to make - i highly recommend it to anybody who loves chocolate!
♥ i made a VERY large fish pie, topped with sweet potato and potato mash, (i use jamie's recipe from the ministry of food cookbook) this is now in the freezer waiting for a large family party at easter! i can't wait!
♥ vegetable lasagne - this was really good, and enough to make my brother and sister-in-law (who never would dream of not eating meat at a meal) actually ask for seconds! there's no cheese between the layers, instead it's creme fraiche, thanks jamie oliver for that little tip!
♥ we had a little shindig with my bro with much champagne and wine drank in celebration of a little business success on my mums part (congratulations!)
♥ for lunch today i had something quite yummy - spinach, bean burger, celery, mayo, cream cheese, gherkin wrap!
♥ almond cookies with just ground almonds and no flour, no sugar either - they were incredibly moist, and pretty yummy :)
and that's all i photographed the last couple of days - we've had lots of porridge and apples too! tomorrow is a big family gathering 'house warming' type party, which will undoubtedly have lots of tasty, tasty food, i'm so looking forward to catching up with the family!
