This summer we have had the pleasure of being invited to share 6 special days with our lovely friends. Talk about wedding fever. Each day was uniquely gorgeous and perfect and everyone looked amazing. Here are a few snaps. :) xxxxxx I love weddings.
Hooray for having a working laptop, and hooray for ordering a new phone that can do more than one thing at a time. These are a few snapshots from over the last few weeks.
-Bath time for Paddy.
-A weekend in Exeter for Nicks graduation (SobSob-Proud sister).
-Beautiful sunshine and the seaside.
This soup has recently made my top 10 'Easy meals to make' list. I am no chef, i'm not really 100% sure if i even like cooking that much.. Baking, i love, just the making of realistic, non heart attack causing foods don't really interest me. Maybe its because i have an ultra sweet tooth. My mum gave me this recipe not long ago, mainly i think because it's pretty simple, so she thought there wasn't much chance i could mess it up,oh and it's cheap.. She knows me so well, haha. The recipe is in Welsh, so here it is mostly translated..
- 1 Butternut squash
- Onion (I used 2 small ones)
- 1 Tin chopped tomatoes
- 1 litre chicken stock
- 20g Butter
- 1 Table spoon olive oil
- 1 Tea spoon ground cinnamon
- Salt & black pepper
Peel the skin from the butternut squash. Chop up the butternut squash and onion. Put the butter and oil into a large pan, and fry on a medium heat, stirring often, until softened. Add the squash and onions. Add the tin tomatoes and stock. Simmer until the mixture has thickened (To be honest, it doesn't thicken much). Add the cinnamon, salt and pepper (I only added a little of the salt and pepper). When the squash has softened, use your food blender.
It also says to add cream and tosted seeds to finish, but i didn't do this.
So here we have it, a little blog to keep track of life at Number 44!!
The reason for this blog is purely selfish. Me and the Mr have recently bought our first home together (eeek!). Here we live just us two, and our baba Padds (our lab x collie, Pooch). We couldn't be happier, and as the saying goes, time flies when your having fun. So to look back on life's little moments at number 44 one day, unless i find a delorian in the next few years, the blog will have to do :)
