I hope you all pop over to Mommy Gourmet and say hi to Vanessa, who has some really tempting dishes on her blog. There is the Greek Yoghurt & Potato Salad, which sounds really delicious, the Cashew & Butterscotch Cookies, which I am desperately craving, the gorgeously simple Bluberry Crisp and Vanessa should get an award for the most amusing post title for her I Finally Have Great Buns post. I am not even going to tell you what that was all about :)
.... and now the catch! There has to be one doesn't there? Well as recipient of this award, I have to tell you 7 random things. You will just have to grin and bare it, if you want to know who I am passing the award on to!
1 I think I have fallen in
2 I am eating greek yoghurt with a drizzle of honey and a sprinkling of berries for my breakfast, now that Spring it here. It is so, so good!
3 It really gets on my nerves when people gnaw their way through an apple. Just bite it already!
4 This year I have planted oregano, basil, apache chilli peppers, mint (boxed in, I know how it can get out of hand), rocket, rhubarb (probably too early, but it is a hardy beast I am told) and petunias.
5 Graham and I are having Pasta salad tonight. I made it yesterday and it is most yummy. Penne pasta, sun dried tomatoes and a little of the oil they are in, chunks of mozzarella, baby plum tomatoes, pesto, a splash of olive oil and black pepper. We are going to follow that with a few slices of juicy honeydew melon. My mouth is watering in anticipation!
6 Last Sunday Graham & I went hillwalking with our walking group. We
I managed to half break the walking stick that Angie loaned me and by the time we had fixed it, everyone else was halfway up the hill. It nearly killed us trying to catch up with them, but the views were stunning once we got up there.
7 I just finished reading The Tree Shepherds Daughter by Gillian Summers.
It is the story of Keelie, a Californian girl who loves shopping, manicures and hanging out at the mall with her friends, that is until her mom dies and she is shipped of to live with her dad, who lives a hippy life working in a medieval festival. There are people with pointy ears, a cat in boots, the trees are trying to talk to her and everyone wears geeky medieval clothes (Keelie's description not mine, I quite like medieval clothes)!
It was a really good read, in fact I read it in a day. I hope I can get my hands on the next book in the trilogy soon.
Done, over, phew!
