February Meal Plans

OK, so it’s only January 3rd, but I am making a start on ideas for next month – which of course includes Pancake day and Valentine’s day.

I have a Pinterest board with recipe ideas and I’ve been drooling over meatball recipes, so they shall feature this month. Do you have a familiy favourite, a warming winter stew, a quick “tah dah” meal? Do leave a comment below with details, a link to your blog or instagram so I can share.

  1. beef meat balls in herby sauce
  2. sausages roasted on apple and red onion wedges – served with mash & lots of gravy. We use veggie sausages but delicious with meaty chipolatas…(contributed by Sarah via my facebook page – thanks Sarah)

  4. fresh herb and lemon risotto
  5. prawn curry
  6. haddock chowder

  • Today I have been planning recipes, working on new design commissions - and tidying my small, but perfectly formed  stash of beautiful British wool!
#bririshwool #britishfibre #wool #stashenhancement #minimalism #knittersofinstagram #crochet Slow down, look around you and see the beauty in small things. Breathe fresh air, watch sunsets, make time for friendship, love and laughter. 
A bit philosophical for a wet Tuesday morning, felt the need to remind myself there is beauty in the ordinary.

One of the joys of our holiday this year was stumbling across the unexpected. We walked past a garden fence covered in these flowers & their ripening fruit. In my schoolgirl French I asked the elderly gentleman if I could take a photo, in better English than my French he invited us in to admire his plot. You can read more about him on the blog, where I've also been writing about how having too much can be a good thing - even if you're a minimalist!

Finally got a photo of me wearing my new sweatshirt, bought from @mirandagorebrowne I ♥♥♥ it so much. The fabric is soft, it fits really well and now washed 3 times it still looks like new! Go buy one before they sell out (also available: "nice buns" & "jammy dodger")
#starbaker #gbbo #kitchenschool #bakemeacakeasfastasyoucan  #bakersofinstagram #baking #lovelythings #instafood #eatme I miss this view so much. Even our current view of sunset over the wheat fields can't compare to a French field of sunflowers!
