Weekly Love: Week 136

Okay, so I’ve got another television recommendation for y’all. We’re y’all-ing because we’re heading down to Charleston for Reckless. I’ve got a soft spot for legal dramas and Southern shows in general, but aside from the great characters, dialogue and interesting re-occuring case load what I’m obsessed with is our leading lady Jamie Sawyer’s wardrobe. So she may not be as awesome in the courtroom as Alicia Florrick, but she dresses so much better. Think all red, white and black ensembles, bright red lips, killer heels and Kate Spade handbags. The costume designers for this show had her bang on from her very first court date.

After my Summer hiatus, I’m back on the Borough Market Blog with a brand new column, sharing recipes and kitchen hacks for those of us who are short on kitchen space and equipment. Click through to read about some of the more cramped kitchens I’ve rented in London over the past couple of years, and for my recipe for a One Pan Sausage Roast with End of Summer Vegetables. If you’re after a few more of my one pan roast dishes, be sure to check out my Mediterranean Roast Chicken, this Sausage & Onion Roast with Mustard Sauce and this Greek Lamb Pattie & Vegetable Tray Bake recipe. Stay tuned for my next recipe this month!

What have you been enjoying this week, and what do you have planned for the weekend? I’ve got a bit for recipe development to be getting on with, and I want to spend a bit of time with my parents as they’ve been away in France (yes, they left me behind!) over the last week.
