It’s that time of the week again already!
Without further adieu;
The Weather has been interesting on the Wirral this week. At the beginning of the week it was bitterly cold and snow was forecast, we did have the odd flurry but it didn’t stick. Most days it went from a grey start like that you can see in this picture of the River Mersey above, to crystal clear blue skies by the afternoon. It definitely feels as though it has warmed up a bit now though.
In view of the shivering temperature, my thoughts turned to sunnier climes when planning my menus. I made this delicious Moussaka Casserole, unusually for me, I always follow this recipe from Amuse Your Bouche exactly. It did take us all back to our holiday on the beautiful island of Crete last year. If you are vegetarian or even just doing Meat Free Monday, you should check Becca’s blog out, failproof everytime!
I have just realised that I seem to be on a bit of a “I need to be warmer” roll ha! So still with sunnier climes in mind, we have booked our flights for our summer holidays. We are off to mainland Spain but not until July, but at least it is something to look forward to. Our older daughter is coming with us too and we will be away to celebrate a significant wedding anniversary :0
We had an unexpected visit home from said daughter. She came to eat dinner and sleep then went back to uni on the first train out of here the next morning. I am nothing if not flexible, so changed my plans to whip up a Butternut and Sage Risotto because it’s one of her favourites. When I sent a text making the suggestion and she replied ‘It is like music to my ears’, I knew I was onto a winner.
I also threw a quick lemon cake in the oven because the recipe is so easy. I used this one but put it in two sandwich tins instead of paper cases. I added Lemon extract to the mix and lemon curd to the two halves before the cream was smeared all over – mmm…… I could eat it now!
There is a field behind Eastham Woods that Jack and I have been making the most of this week. It is very popular with dogs and their humans. It is one of Jack’s favourite places because he loves the company of other dogs and often they outnumber the humans here – dog heaven!
That is it for this week! Finger’s crossed for the link – it seemed to work last week!
Have a lovely day x
