Life Lately: mainly eating and making exciting plans!

November 21, 2013

Life lately has, of course, mostly involved eating and making exciting plans!

I’ve made my Christmas cake! Every year Trout asks me to make our Christmas cake, and every year I either forget, never get round to it, can’t be bothered, don’t see the point for just the two of us… not this year. I had a day off a few weeks ago, so decided that I had no more excuses, it was time to finally make my own cake. I used to absolutely love Christmas cake, so I don’t know why I’ve never made one before.

Gingerbread porridge! Oh gosh, this is just the perfect start to the day.

Enjoying everything squash-related! Butternut squash and roasted apple soup, squash and filo pie, squash tagine, baked squash. So yummy and seasonal.

I was inspired by Sultan’s Delights and tried my hand at making Börek. They were pretty good, but nothing compared to hers!

Salted caramel candle! Geez Louise this smells incredible. It makes the whole flat smell amazing, but also makes me want to bake cookies and caramel and treats and bowls of icing. Which isn’t helping my attempt at a sugar detox.

Indulging in some of Sultan’s Delights vegan baklava. It’s just so syrupy and delicious! If I baked this myself, and it was even half as good as hers, I would eat the whole tray by myself. And that definitely wouldn’t help my sugar detox.

We’ve booked our flights for New Years Eve, and are flying to Barcelona to see my best friend, Laia! I’m SO excited. We have friends joining us while we’re there too, which just puts a big smile on my face.

If you follow me on Twitter you might have seen me chatting about a new online magazine called Fresh Vegan. I was kindly asked to contribute to the magazine, and I’m really excited to see the finished copy. The magazine will be going live on Sunday 1st December, so be sure to pop over to the website and take a look through! There are so many wonderful people contributing – including vegan chefs who are sharing some fantastic vegan recipes, just in time for Christmas. You can follow Fresh Vegan on Twitter, and Like them on Facebook.

So that’s what I’ve been up to lately! Do you have any plans for New Years Eve? We’re really enjoying going away every year. Trout hasn’t spent a NYE in the UK for four years, and I don’t think he plans on doing it again for a while!

      I’ve only spent NYE at home living in London – you’re right, it’s always absolutely manic in central! Thanks so much for the candle tip x
