this weekend was our first wedding anniversary :) Pete did a lovely job of spoiling me - he took me for dinner at the Chesil Rectory in Winchester, and to a wine tasting space called The Black Bottle. then the following day we went for amazing breakfast (a proper veggie fry-up), and a walk along the beach front at Mudeford - the sun shone tremendously and i breathed in every ounce of fresh sea air.
unfortunately, there aren't any photos. but i do have photos from my week, which i hope makes up for it! so here are my latest eats and treats:
♥ a simple, delicious and nutritious breakfast - spinach and a little homegrown sorrel, eggs, avocado and a tiny slice of toasted sourdough - perfection.
♥ a simple dinner - smoked salmon, defrosted frozen veg, and bread for the husband - all sprinkled with a little dukkah (it just makes everything better)
♥ cherubim chocolates - i came across Cherubim when we were on holiday, and then had more sent to me to test out the flavours. it's beautiful raw chocolate - with added carob and lucuma, which give it an amazing taste, and sweetened only with agave. i can't decide if i prefer rose otto with crystalised rose petals or pepperment with cocoa nibs. yummy! these are definitely added to my christmas list (for me as well as my family!)
♥ bean burgers are the perfect dinner - i made these with a little grated courgette and some smashed crackers - so easy and so tasty (fancy the recipe?)
♥ we've still got some courgettes and courgette flowers from our borders - i love the flowers ripped up on top of salads to give a little extra sunshine.
i'd like to grow a few more things next year. i have to say though that i'll stick with low maintenance plants... courgette, herbs and salad leaves have been productive and tasty this year with very minimal effort :) do you have any suggestions?
just in case you aren't a subscriber on my YT channel, i thought i'd add in my latest video, which features my favourites things from September, including the delicious Cherubim Chocolate!
thanks for watching and reading!
