Weekly Love: the one where I settle back into real life after the holidays!

1. Enjoying a massive Full English and a Bloody Mary after rolling out of bed at lunchtime on New Years Day.| 2. It’s soup season, and my (accidentally vegan) Sweet Potato Soup (jazzed up with just a hint of ginger and chilli) is one of my most reader-made recipes. For the recipe, head over to BBC Food! | 3. My first walk of the New Year in a brilliantly sunny Dulwich Park. | 4. Indulging in my favourite lunchtime sandwich from Borough Market, stuffed with Duck Confit. | 5. Some incredibly light tempura fish with a fantastic Durban curry mayo at The Duck Inn in Pett Bottom. | 6. Another of my cheap, nourishing and accidentally vegan soups up on BBC Food this month: my 5-Ingredient Tomato, Chickpea & Pasta Soup.
