Weekly Love: Week 198

Happy Friday everyone! I've been enjoying the beautiful sunshine down in Kent these past two weeks after a weekend spent in London, working from home in the garden during the day, then out working on the election in my home patch in the evenings, joining the team for way too many pints and curries once it finally gets too dark to knock on everyones doors (don't be surprised if I turn into a peshwari naan before I return to London!) This sort of thing is what I live for, but the weather has already got my so excited to properly get into my first summer in the city for a while: get ready for lots of outdoor dining posts, trips out to the countryside for picnics and barbecues, and of course the publication of my first book, Student Eats!
Weekly Love 19.05.17[1]
1. When your hometown gets a Banksy. | 2. First lunch outside this year: a quickly thrown together Caprese Salad with both fresh and sun-blush tomatoes, served in the garden with lots of crusty bread. | 3. Ridiculously fragrant lilac in practically every garden I came across in Shepton Mallet, Somerset (and most of them here in East Kent, too!) | 4. Plump red strawberries coming into season at Borough Market. | 5. A good caramalised onion scotch egg and chunky chips outside The Morpeth Arms in Pimlico. | 6. Enjoying SPAR's new DOC and DOCG proseccos in the garden *ad*.

7. Walking around my parents new garden first thing every morning with a cup of tea, still discovering something new at every turn. | 8. Mouthwatering patisserie at Borough Market. | 9. More from the garden: treating myself to my favourite salted caramel ice cream bars from Haagen Dazs before hitting the campaign trail for the rest of the day. *ad*




What have you been enjoying this week, and what do you have planned for the rest of the weekend? My parents are back from their trip, so as well as campaigning, I'm looking forward to spending a bit more time with them!
