Taking Stock – March 2022

I can’t believe we’re more than a quarter of the way through the year already. I have a theory that the older I get, the faster the time passes. I wonder, is that just me?!

I know we’re actually in April but I’m a bit on the back foot and only just getting around to take stock and muse on March. I’d love it if you joined me!

Cooking: Up a storm. This delicious Greek Style Fish Traybake has been on high rotation at our place.

Loving: A change of scenery in the mountains.

Liking: Having more time in the kitchen.
