Catch up


It seems like ages since I last posted anything and I feel suitably ashamed of myself but I have been very busy. My parents came to stay with us on Friday night, which was lovely, and we all went out to a great Chinese restaurant in Leatherhead called Pangs Villa. Mmmmmmmmmmmm tasty! Worth a visit if you live nearby.

Then on Saturday we all went to my brother’s new flat for lunch. We all arrived at one o’clock on the dot only to find that he was still in Sainsbury’s – at least it wasn’t raining, as we waited outside for quite a while. Eventually he came back and we sat down to eat by about 3 o’clock!! We had a great time though, his girlfriend is so lovely and my brother is a great cook. We had lemon and asparagus risotto to start, followed by cod stuffed with olives and served with spinach and roasted tomatoes. Then for dessert we had strawberries, ice cream and chocolate brownies! Now the last item on the list was especially delicious because I have given up chocolate for lent but it would have been rude not to eat it when I was a guest! ;-)

The weekend doesn’t end there, we had Monkey’s parents round for lunch on Sunday and I cooked a roast and another French apple flan.

Anyway, what I’m trying to say is I was very busy! However, I still had time to finish knitting the bolero just need to sew it all together now. By the way I have made a decision I am going to finish knitting my guilt jumper. This is Lisette from Rowan 36 (see photo), I started it months and months ago but I just can’t finish it. I don’t know why, I’m usually a fairly quick knitter but now I am going to bite the bullet and actually finish it…

All that food is making me very hungry (especially with pictures of cakes LOL!). Look forward to seeing the bolero. That's a very pretty jumper too, must be Spring in the air that is giving us renewed energy to finish those languishing WIPs :-)

You talk about such a delicious food!... Good I had my lunch just a moment ago! ^^
I'm going to try the apple tart recipe this week, it sounds great. I'll try to take a photo before it gets eaten. ^-^
