NOVEMBER 2020

Weekend walks to Buns From Home.

The tiramisu croissant buns are out of this world.

The last of the Autumn leaves from our bedroom window.

Licence to chill.

Blue skies, a mug of hot green tea, a soy wax candle and tip-tapping away on a blog post.

Small things can bring so much joy.

This is the candle I was burning in the last picture and it is truly divine.

So fresh and fruity, it subtly fills the whole room without being overwhelming.

I’ve never met a Paddywax candle I don’t like; they have some lovely scents!

These Sooshichacha candles are lovely too and even came with a handwritten little card – it’s always worth supporting a small business if you can!

I finally got around to watching The Handmaid’s Tale this month and have been loving it so far. This may be a bit controversial, but I actually prefer it to the book…

Also, Grom chocolate gelato is the best store-bought gelato ever.

Ramen-tic dinner date.

The books I read this month.

A few little gifts for friends this month because it’s always nice to spread the joy, especially in these times.

I also set myself the goal of learning 5 new dishes this month and I (kinda) did it!

  1. The Londoner’s sage and apple roasted pork chops (I’ve made these twice this month and can confirm that they are incredibly easy to cook and delicious – plus you get your five a day in too)
  2. The Londoner’s Bulhao pato clams (another easy one to cook and really tasty too but more of a treat as clams are pretty pricy in London)
  3. The Londoner’s simple saucy fish supper (again, really easy and yummy. I’ve made this about 3 times this month)
  4. Technically not a new dish but I made a quinoa-based poke bowl with surf clam
  5. Flatbread covered in nduja paste, cheddar, mozzarella, pineapple and parma ham with a side of spicy Nandos sauce (I’d been meaning to use the nduja paste in a while so I’m glad I finally got around to it. A really easy and delicious lunch option)

Finally, I’ll leave you with a Zoom screenshot from Em’s 30th celebrations over the weekend.

Ah, the lockdown life.
