Weekly Love: Week 165

Thank god that cold snap is over! It got suddenly frosty, didn’t it. I tried not to leave the house / office whenever possible, and at night I snuggled up under layers of White Company bedding and Avoca Irish lambswool blankets (they’re an investment, but oh so worth it). So, while it is not quite as warm as before, I don’t feel like my face is about to freeze off walking along the seafront, so at least that is something! It’s February on Monday, which means it is basically the first day of Spring / my birthday, right? 

Weekly Love 29.01.16

1. Getting ready for pancake day with single serving crepes in the morning before work, served with salted butter and sugar. | 2. Beautiful pink tulips for the kitchen table. | 3. Lemon Ricotta Cloud Pancakes for Sunday brunch from A Modern Way To Eat. | 4. Flipping through the new season Joules catalogue with a steaming (Joules Peggy) mug of sweet rhubarb tea and an early Valentines tin of chocolate hearts from the lovely team at Lindt. | 5. Avocado, Bacon and Lambs Lettuce Wraps with Skinny Buttermilk Ranch Dressing. | 6. The first of the seasons forced rhubarb for sale outside the greengrocers on Deal High Street.

More from my recent gig putting together fun recipe roundups for Foodie by Mode, I had a wonderful time on a stormy day putting together a round up of baking projects inspired by some of our favourite classic novels. See below for recipes inspired by Harry Potter, The Great Gatsby and The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe.

What have you been enjoying this week, and what do you have planned for the weekend? I’m going to have a quiet one at home, cooking up a little something to star in Monday’s blog post – February 1st also happens to be a pretty big blog birthday for me! I honestly can’t believe that I’ve been at this blogging thing so long.
