Last week's meals

Week starting 14 September 2015

Week starting 7th September 2015

Eeek - so very hard to post this week's photos - icecream and wine for dinner....  Thank goodness for this blog is all I can say, it meant that this type of dinner was confined to just one night.  This week I also got the chance to try out a few more recipes from the Anneka Manning cook book - my current favourite and go-to place for inspiration.

Week starting 17 August 2015
