DVD Days!

The past few weeks have been rather manic for me so come Saturday all I want to do is relax with nothing more taxing than watching a good film
It all started one Saturday popping round to join Ben and his sister for some lunch which as you can see we set out as a carpet picnic whilst we watched The VowThe following two weeks have been spent with Ben, companionably on a sofa each at my flat watching movie after movie! We've worked our way through; Bridesmaids, Two Weeks Notice, Scarface, Final Destination 5, Friends with Benefits and The Talented Mr Ripley - an eclectic mix don't you think!!

I won't mention the food we've worked our way through!!

How many fellow Celebrity Juice fans said "Potato" Keith Lemon style when you saw this posts' title?!

A couple of Sunday's ago I popped into my local supermarket and there was an abundance of reduced products on offer, including a bag of potatoes

I decided to give making my own potato dishes to freeze a go rather than relying on the processed versions available

I popped 3 in the oven to bake, one didn't make it to the freezer as they smelt too good but two were made into filled potatoes with some cheese and creme fraiche.

The rest were cut into wedges or peeled for roasts, bar poiled, cooled down and then popped in the freezer

I have to say the roast potatoes were some of the best I've ever made and was such a pleasure one Sunday afternoon to not worry about the peeling and boiling and all the associated mess and simply pop them from the freezer in to the oven

Don't they look delicious!

Butter Up

I was sorting through some old photos earlier this week and loved these I found of my nephew - clearly not  having a knife didn't stop him buttering his roll

My Latest Obsession is.....


It's a new love following a dinner last year in a local restaurant but it's fast becoming the essential element of my weekend dining

Whilst I'm not an advocate of cutting out carbs from your diet I have found recently my tolerance for eating them is waning and I feel much better for avoiding them with big meals and the halloumi gives another dimension to my chicken dinner

Are you a fan of halloumi? 

I'd love to know how you use it in your meals
