Photos of the Week #16

April 22, 2014

WEEK 16 OF 52


I’ve been absolutely obsessed by smoothies lately. It just feels like a perfect start to the day! These are both fruity smoothies, but I’ve also been experimenting with green smoothies, which I’ll be blogging about later in the week.//I was kindly sent a few 9bar’s to try – I’ve never had them before, and they were so good! Although they are meant to be enjoyed for breakfast, the cocoa bar was perfect with a mug of fresh coffee in the afternoon. I’m working my way through the flavours, and will let you know how I get on with them.


Bunny shaped crumpets! SO CUTE! And obviously even tastier than regular crumpets. I made them for everyone at work, spread with the last pot of jam from my sister’s wedding; blackcurrant turkish delight. Yum. //One beige dinner! Sometimes it’s fun to have a dinner like this; faux fish fillets, chips from the local chippie, a roll to make a chip buttie with, and baked beans.//Something a little healthier; making dinner on Friday evening. More on that later this week.//On Saturday we headed down to the seafront for the Brighton & Hove Food Festival on Hove Lawns. We were really lucky with the weather, and there was a great atmosphere – and so much good food to choose from! We had a vegetable stirfry from a vegan stall, which was really tasty. Even though I don’t look super happy, I was! Who wouldn’t be with such a huge portion to tuck into.


I hung out with the Harvey’s horses on my lunch break – they’ve been dotted around town making their deliveries lately. Can you spot the tiny dog on top of the barrels?//The Level at night. So beautiful, so alive. Someone was performing with fire! I’m so proud of our city for building this amazing skate park. They’ve turned it from an area I rushed through at night to somewhere so full of life, and what now feels so safe and almost calm at night.//Walking home from a bit of food shopping – no popsocks, summer shoes and blossom. It might just be spring!//Rasputin with his cheeky eyes (and nose!) on my baklava. What a munchkin.


I spent Easter weekend at home, eating Easter eggs, having my breakfast delivered to me in bed (heaven! I could get used to this…)(and yes, that is another bunny crumpet. I’m addicted!), having a Wii Dance Off with my family, and finally, before I left to go home, hanging out with Ras while he was letting it all hang out. Cat life. Sigh.

Easter Sunday lunch! So yummy. I love having so many veggies on my plate; roast potatoes, parsnips, roasted carrots, broccoli and spring greens, plus schnitzel and gravy, and stuffing. Yum!
(Oh and just to clarify, the meat on those plates is real meat! Not some awesome vegan alternative, I’m afraid).

    I love the photos, especially Ras. He’s so cute. Green smoothies are the best because you add the greens to it and that’s the only difference between green smoothies and regular smoothies. You don’t even know they’re there except the fact that they’re green.

      Yes! As long as you have something sweet to balance them, they’re lovely. Can’t wait to try more recipes.

    Oh man, it’s been a long time since I’ve made a proper chip butty. I need to sort that out asap! I can’t believe I missed out on bunny shaped crumpets whilst I was away, I’ll be keeping an eye out for them next year for sure.
