Morning to Dusk

January 25, 2013

Morning latte using Small Batch Coffee Company ground coffee. I’ve mentioned them a few times, and they are just the most wonderful company – their coffee tastes incredible and I was very lucky to be sent some to sample.//Toast and white pyjamas.

 

Spending time on the sofa with Rasputin, Hound magazine, my notebook and emails.

Eating the leftovers of this dinner for lunch – with extra roasted chickpeas.//This week’s Graze box.

 

My beautiful new notebook; the sweetest gift from the sweetest friend.//Catching up with the latest issue of Red magazine.

 

On the left is my favourite dinner; dosa.//I’m in love with these brussel sprout crisps, featured on A Beautiful Mess. It’s a great way of using up leftover sprouts – and I have my eye on this recipe to use up the middle of the sprouts, which can’t be separated.

I felt completely spoilt when I checked the post yesterday and it was all for me! Sometimes you just need something like that to cheer up your day. This week seems to have flown by – I am loving this extra time to spend on my blog and take photographs. It may not pay the bills but it sure is a lovely way to spend my time. Catching up on laundry, food shopping and soup-making also featured in my day yesterday, as well as chasing Rasputin round the flat and watching another episode of Breaking Bad before falling asleep to a podcast. Perfect.

How has your week been? Do you have any great recipes for leftovers?

    With leftovers I just throw everything in a pan with some coconut oil, add some tomato puree, spices, and sometimes an egg, cook through, and see what you’ve created!

    Brussel sprout crisps sound divine. I love leftovers and making little additions to them to change them up.

    I love dosa and brussel sprout crisps sound so good!
    I love taking leftovers such as quinoa and turning it something totally different…i often take left over quinoa and make a veggie burger, which is really great.

    That coffee sounds good! I tend to add tahini to any leftovers, instantly makes it taste gorgeous!

      I’m not really sure about tahini – maybe I need to experiment a little more!
