Despite a sickly start, August turned out to be pretty awesome. And here’s why. Let’s take stock like Pip did!

Cooking: This Turkey, Pesto and Ricotta Lasagne. It’s amaze!
Eating: Everything that’s left in the freezer.

Remembering: All the fabulous food we had in Toronto – it’s definitely Destination Delicious!
Reading: Jojo Moyes’ Ship of Brides*. Such a lovely read.
Needing: To catch up on all the Game of Thrones we’ve missed before we go away!
Listening: To One Republic. Just got tickets to see them in Anaheim. Squee!
