a bitesize weekly update
Let’s start something new here shall we? A few treats on a Sunday evening to help stave off the Sunday blues and give you some inspiration for Monday and beyond. I share 5 lovely things on a Friday too, you should sign up!
Chilli is essential to life, although I’ve never served it in a syringe before. This Bloody Mary at Cambridge’s newest pub/restaurant was served by a cheery bartender (studying at Cambridge, as you’ll find with most bar staff in the city) and with a generous syringe full of tabasco sauce. Check out the Old Bicycle Shop’s menu, the food is great and it certainly has the most hipster interior in town.
I’m full on obsessed with smoked sea salt – put it on focaccia, mix it with juicy summer tomatoes and sprinkle it on dark chocolate brownies.
Whilst I love coffee (especially as I’m not a morning person) am I am a tea first kind of girl, so I love trying new teas. The super lovely people at Teachest sent me a sampler pack to try this week, which I was very impressed with. The little silver packets do remind me of something you’d use to stop the pitter patter of tiny feet (ahem), but I guess they keep the tea fresh! The Prince Miha is such a delicate black tea, the Lychee adds a bright, fruity flavour and the Indian Chai is perfectly spiced.
I love vegetables! In a fit of healthy eating on a beautifully sunny day, I cooked up this roasted squash cous cous with pesto and feta. Vegetarian food as it should be!
Anyone else ever go to the Chinese supermarket to buy random stuff? I went to a newly opened shop on Wednesday that has an incredible good sweet section, I also got Tiramisu biscuit sticks, like Pocky but a different brand! Need to go back for the almond version of the sesame cookies.
Crumbs: extra bits and bobs
- Charity shop cookbook bargain
- Herb marinated paneer
- Pumpkin (or squash) and pancetta pasta al forno
- I don’t need anymore mugs except if they have cats on
