“Can’t we say ‘alive again’? Doesn’t that sound nice?”
Happy Easter Everyone! As i’m having a break from
painting drawing on eggs, I saw this gem on my dashboard! I can’t remember the last time I reblogged another artists work, but I love lowlighters illustrations and Pushing Daisies even more so! My heart flutters! Just look at them! Look at Cod! <3
Mother’s Day Dinner at Jamie’s Italian
Last weekend we took our mum to Jamie’s Italian in Canary Wharf for a late mother’s day celebration. Since Dan & I moved out of our home in Surrey almost exactly 1 year ago, we dont get to see mum any near as often anymore, so its really nice to have everyone come together again. This was her card with built in pop-up daffodils, since when we were kids, we used to go to church on mothering sunday and pass flowers to her.
Mother’s Day Dinner at Jamie’s Italian - prt2
We ordered the same starters as before and 3 Earl Grey Martini’s. It was funny because I remembered that at first I found this drink a bit too bitter, when I ordered it on Valentines Day, but when I asked for it to be a bit sweeter this time, It came back wayyy to sugar sweet, we were all passing our glasses round to find the one that suited us best.
Then for main course, Mum had clam spaghetti, Dan had (possible rabbit) bolognese, Alan had a burger and I had prawn linguini. We all enjoyed our meals and spent a lot of time chatting. After coming back from the retro ladies room, the stairway has a view of the whole restaurant I thought it would be nice for you to see. We finished our meals with ice cream and my favourite was back, salt caramel flavour ice cream! All in all it was a nice occasion and a celebration to my Mums future that she has been working so hard towards, we love you!
Oxtail Stew & Pie with Green spinach, monster dumplings from Jamie’s Great Britain. A hearty stew that just keeps giving, seriously we have been eating this for 3 days straight! …help
Another Full English! Seriously our lives depend on this meal, I had actually woken up by my earliest (10am) to make this hearty breakfast, with Alan’s homemade hash browns! I had so much energy through the day after this, I had an overly inspired day of work (as seen on my twitter feed), turns out breakfast really is the most important meal of the day!
The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies
I love these cookies so much they deserve their own title. In the past I had always had a frustrating relationshop with cookies. Chocolate Chip in the packets never brought it justice, and the only other time I would get to really indulge in cookies would be from Famous Amos in Singapore or now more recently, Bens Cookies in Bond Street.
I have however discovered and concocted the perfect recipe! Big chunky, chewy chocolate, chocolate chip cookies with rock salt on the top. Best served hot, as they tend to go hard when cool, but pop them back in the oven or 30 seconds in the microwave and you’re good to go!
Everything Lasagne, with all leftovers again in it, and then NYC Vodka Pasta, a spicy quick treat! Recipe from Jamie’s America
I made a lot of stews and soups this week, since spring is still yet to show its face over this Easter! Featuring from Jamie’s Great Britain - Scottish Broth & Lamb Toasts and then Mighty Multiganaway Soup.
Tuna Sushi has always been a true love to me, my favourite since my childhood days of sitting with my family at a sushi train in Australia. In London/ UK however, its not so common to find it, other than the odd Wasabi branches, but who wants to pay £1.50 a piece when you can make it at home! The perfect tuna mayo sushi, with red onions and salmon onigiri flakes on top.
