I’m feeling a little wrecked right now..so please excuse any errors or faux pas’. My blogships were totally holding down the food scene when I was away and last week was no exception. A few new blogs I’ve started following such as tea for joy were especially inspiring. So without further ado..
Did you know that The Times was running a recipe drawing contest? Me neither, but thanks to Tea for Joy now you do know. So what are you waiting for? If my ‘drawings’ didn’t look like the end result of an epileptic who seized when holding a pen in their hands I would have a crack at it, but alas.
Email your entry to firstname.lastname@example.org to win a cookery course for two at London’s Cookery School and have your recipe on The Times website. Deadline is this Thurs 19th August!!
By the writing of this post Artemis of Tales of a Junkaholic should be a ‘missus‘. Many congrats! But what a lovely post she wrote last week regarding a wedding present from a fellow blogger. The most delicate, lovely vintage wedding forks! I simply love them. A fantastic idea for a wedding gift might I add..and an idea I will certainly be stealing. Yoink! Congrats Artemis & Nao!
You know this is one of those things that I haven’t yet forgiven myself for. I know pancakes should be easy to make from scratch, but when trader joes makes such a yummy multigrain one I always find myself picking up a box in store instead of just buying the ingredients needed. Enter trotski and ash to steal me away from my wasteful ways. Buckwheat pancakes sound like a treat..and I have never even remotely considered using the citrus of a orange instead of a lemon to adorn them. Can you say YUM?
That’s it! I’m off for a sleep.
*blogships is a rip on an email I got that opened with ‘ what’s cooking my friendships?’
