Here are a few of my favourite things from March:
A Welsh coastal mini-break
Over Easter weekend I went with my family to visit my Granddad in South Wales. It was great to get some fresh sea air, spend time with family and eat a few Easter eggs!
Rays through the clouds
If you look carefully there are lots of hidden artworks/interesting artefacts in the woods around this area – I love looking to see what’s still there and what’s been added each year.
I made a white and dark chocolate cake to for Easter tea – if you’re looking for a fairly simple but very tasty cake for a special occasion I’d recommend this. I’ve also learnt that drizzling white chocolate across a cake hides a multitude of imperfections and actually looks quite impressive!
Recipe of the month
In March I really got into making bento lunches! I had a really tasty bento meal when I was in Singapore, and thought I’d give it a go myself to liven up lunchtime (I’d been stuck in a soup rut for a while). I discovered http://justbento.com/ – a fantastic site that teaches you how to introduce bento to your life. There are loads of really great recipes. I’m working through them and am really enjoying trying such a wide variety of lunches – I’ve even given tofu a go! My favourite so far has been balsamic sesame chicken, which I’ve paired up with some soy beans, mange tout and Rachael Ray’s cold ginger, soy and honey sesame noodles – this is seriously good.
Cocktail of the month
This month I think my favourite Friday Night Cocktail was the Ink Martini – gin, peach schnapps, blue curaçao liqueur and cranberry juice, that all come together to make an unusual, deep inky blue drink that tasted lovely.
