Why is it that every summer America stops all of our favourite TV shows so that there is nothing to watch over the summer? I've solved this by binge watching current shows that I never got around to starting, and re-watching some old favourites. At the moment, I'm really into Blindspot (I'm a sucker for a good FBI drama. A woman with absolutely sick combat skills is found naked and tattooed in a duffle bag in Times Square with her memory wiped, and the tattoos lead to crimes), and I have been re-watching Bones right from the beginning, which, given the absolute, blast from the past shocker in the season 11 finale, was a very good call of mine.
1. A Cucumber & Elderflower Collins on the (cloudy) Granary Square terrace of The Lighterman in King's Cross. | 2. Pork belly and prawn stuffed giant crispy pancakes with lettuce wraps, herbs and Vietnamese dipping sauce for lunch at Little Viet Kitchen in Islington - review to follow next week! | 3. Oh, and did I mention that the interior of the restaurant is absolutely dreamy? | 4. The only tomato salad recipe you'll ever need, again, something else that will be appearing in the blog next week. | 5. For a healthy treat that uses up the end of a can of coconut milk, whizz it together with a handful of raspberries and some vanilla bean paste before freezing in a lolly mould. | 6. My weekend greenhouse haul.
