I love Sunday mornings. Cooking in my oven right now is a delicious leg of lamb, the house smells divine. Also, the sun is shining and it looks like a beautiful day outside, life is good.
Last night was just as lovely as this morning. We decided to stay in a watch a movie with my mix of sweet, toffee and salted popcorn and candle light. I’m adoring my autumn scented Yankee candles right now. It was time to whip open the vanilla chai scent, as much as I love the salted caramel ones it was time to try something new.
For dinner last night we had some left over chilli. I made a chilli bowl, with roasted butternut squash topped with goat’s cheese, avocado and a hard boiled eggs. This was seriously good and the perfect Saturday night food to precede our movie and popcorn.
Before popping out to do the weekly shop yesterday I made a lovely bowl of Chocolate and Ginger Oats topped with goji berries and peanut butter. This was tremendously good! Fear not, the recipe for this little bowl of chocolate and oaty heaven will be coming up later next week, hopefully.
My afternoon snack was delicious as it looks. Cottage cheese, fresh figs (so pretty!), walnuts and maple syrup. Boy, this went down a treat. My belly was very happy with this. I think that this is one of my favourite food combinations.
The afternoon was spent reading some of my favourite blogs on my new toy complete with some chai tea. I am a bit of a gadget freak and I love technology. I have to say that the iPad mini is one of those genius creations, it’s going to be great on my morning commute and on my honeymoon.
Now this was a taste sensation:
Raw chocolate with lime by IQ. I have been sent a selection of these to review and I tried the lime flavoured bar on Friday night. In the past I’ve tried Montezuma’s sea dog flavour that has lime in it and loved it, but I felt that the lime flavour is quite subtle in comparison to this particular bar. This really hit the spot, so yummy!
Well, I’m going to head back to my relaxing weekend. I hope you are all having a good one!
