Greetings from the Mother Country. I made it! It was an epic voyage of planes, trains and automobiles but it was totally worth it. Now let’s hop to it and see what’s happening down the round the world Rabbit Hole, shall we?
Today is National Strawberries and Cream Day – how quintessentially British! These Strawberry Shortcake Trifles looks as pretty as a picture but I’ve got my eye on this No Bake Chocolate Strawberry and Cream Pie, although Elvis Presley’s Strawberry Layer Cake just like it’s namesake looks to be the King (of the cake department anyway!)
Breakfast is by far my favourite meal of the day. I am one of those weirdos who can eat anything for breakfast from salad to cereal, from pancakes to burgers and I’ve always taken my mum at her word; she used to tell me that I should have a king’s breakfast, a prince’s lunch and a pauper’s supper. However, porridge is my new favourite thing and I’ve been topping it with homemade fruit compote, but I’m loving the look of this make ahead DIY fruit and nut topping – think of all that value added crunch! I’m also a huge fan of overnight oats so I can’t wait to try this apple pie version and check out some other new ways with this old oaty classic.
Still on my favourite subject of food, did you see those 20 funniest food tweets? Number four is me to a tee!
Flowers are another one of my favourite things. I try to buy some blooms every week because flowers make my heart happy. I am more of a flower dumper than a flower arranger so these ideas for simple flower arrangements you can do yourself will come in very handy! If you are a fan of flowers that enjoy everlasting life, check out these artificial blooms and beautifully fake it. No one will know, it can be our little secret! I’m a serial plant killer from way back, so I’m happy to know that there are fail safe plants that are hard to kill. Our flat is on the dark side, so I’m bookmarking these indoor plants for dark corners. Fail safe maybe, but Sam safe? Watch this space!
