First of all I think I need to explain that this title is a little misleading. The following delicious dishes are not my typical go to meals. Most days I try to eat very healthily, avoiding bread and watching my fat and sugar comsumption. There are times however when you have to balance this with a little indulgence. Yin and yang!
A selection of croissants and danish pastries with strawberry jam, fresh ground coffee and fresh tropical juice.
Baby leaf salad, fresh chicken, tomatoes on the vine, cucumber all finished with a drizzle of Mary Berry salad dressing and a few shavings of Parmesan.
Gourmet burger with bacon, melted cheese and gherkin in a brioche bun with handcut seasoned chips and garlic mushrooms.
This delicious meal was finished with homemade chewy hazelnut meringue with whipped cream and fresh raspberries, and of course a glass of peppery Merlot!
Good food, both preparing and eating it is so important to me, and whilst the meals above seem very indulgent, they are all prepared using fresh, quality ingredients. x
Reflecting back I think the theme of last weekend was definately FOOD – I have to say that is my favourite sort of weekend!
After a long week, I got home on Friday evening to a stunning Tapas meal prepared by my gorgeous husband.
Then on Sunday afternoon my daughter treated us to a very indulgent afternoon tea at Barkers Tea Rooms in Cardiff. It was to die for and the good thing is they provide you with a doggy box, incase you can’t manage it all.
Barkers is set in one of the beautiful Victorian arcades in Cadiff, it has an oldy worldy charm and is the perfect way to spend a warm sunny afternoon.
Hi guys, I have been meaning to blog a few room tours for some time but I just haven’t got around to it.
I am totally obsessed with beautiful white clean spaces and I take a lot of my inspiration from stores and blogs such as The White Company. White is sometimes viewed as a cold, clinical colour but for me it’s perfect all year round. At this time of the year with longer days and more natural light creeping into our homes, the colour ‘pops’ and raises the mood. Conversely in the colder, darker autumn and winter months, white can form the perfect backdrop for cosy dancing candle light and layered warm throws and blankets.
If you’re using white as the main colour in your interior design, then I personally think ‘texture’ becomes so important to achieve interest and variety. Layering soft furnishings such as fur throws, chucky knit blankets and sequined cushions can transform a setting. Don’t just rely on the visual, softy scented candles and diffusers can create and enhance a seasonal mood.
I hope you’ve enjoyed part 1 of my home tour as much as I’ve enjoyed creating it. Part 2 will follow soon (I promise) x
