My Weekend

Hello everyone have you had a good weekend? 
Mine has been filled with friends, family and food!

Friday evening whilst the football game which we won't discuss was on I cooked Southern Fried Chicken for the first time. I was pleased with the results although it was a lot of effort for a meal for myselfSaturday it was off to every Essex girls favourite shopping centre for every girls favourite escapade - shoe shopping! As you know Kelly has announced the exciting news that she will be getting married next month and I'm pleased to say I will be her bridesmaid along with James' sister Samantha who I met yesterday. Samantha had the eagle eyes to spot a fabulous pair of shoes for us to wear and then we had great fun trying on fascinators before deciding on the right ones

Of course I can't possibly show you what we chose but the good news is you only have a couple of weeks to wait. After an exhausting day's shopping it was back to Kelly's where James cooked us dinner and I made ridiculous suggestions for their little bundle from their baby names book

I took along a dessert I'd made; White Chocolate & Honeycomb cheesecake

(from Gizzi's Kitchen Magic, as was the chicken)

Today was our towns local show and I was pleased to see the addition of a fresh bread stall

Brody loved the birds

(here you go Rob a photo of one of you on my blog this week!)

I came home and laid out my bread and cheese goodies from the show and some other treats and have happily grazed  all day

Now it's time to have a tidy up and get ready for another week of work ahead but before I go of course I have to wish my dad "Happy Father's Day"
