The Weekly Report

Watching Old episodes of The Office (the US version although I like both!), Mary Berry cooking some great food and silly Come Dine with Me moments.  Listening to A lot of Fiona Apple, a little smidgen of Arctic Monkeys, some strong Motown and I can’t stop singing this. Reading The Men Who Stare at Goats, which is ace so far…

The Drinks Report: Café Amaretto

I’ve always had more of an affinity with tea than coffee, but the occasional cup is a real treat. I picked up this Little’s Café Amaretto a few weeks ago. I love amaretto so this was a pretty natural choice, albeit an impulsive purchase. I really love the packaging and the idea of an instant coffee…

The Food Report: Crumble

Most of my meals begin with a craving for just one ingredient. I just ate two weeks of Mexican food because I had a craving for avocados that led into a deep need for black beans. This Sunday’s food-based love letter started with a pot in the corner of my eye in M&S. I absolutely…

The Weekly Report

Watching New season Archer, Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion and EDL Girls, which opened my eyes to a whole range of arguments I couldn’t quite believe existed.  Listening to The new Correspondents album – it’s the first time in ages that I’ve actually bought an album. It made me realise that whilst I wanted to buy the real life copy, I…

The Drinks Report: Rum Punch

I swear when I started the drinks report I envisioned it being about tea and smoothies, but it seems to have taken a turn to the alcoholic. Punch is one of my favourite things – take all the drinks leftover from house parties, anything gross that you want to get rid of, some fruit and…

The Food Report: Caribbean Supper Club

I really love creating new traditions. My friends and I can sometimes be a bit stuck in our ways when it comes to our little rituals and places to go, but we’re still always looking for new things to add to the list. When Olivia returned from Thailand last summer she wanted to cook us…

The Weekly Report

Watching Modern Family and the Hairy Bikers’ Asian Adventure. I love that they made their own miso and that it’s the fashion in Japan at the moment – it seems that going back to homemade is a global trend. Listening to Apparently my Disclosure and Fleetwood Mac phase hasn’t stopped yet. I’m also listening to a whole load of radio dramas….

Hello! First up on this week’s drinks report, mango lassi. For those of you who don’t know, lassi is an Indian yoghurt-based drink, the mango version of which is now almost widely available in the UK. Last night we went on a little work trip to Lucha Libre and I had a Mint and Mango…

Today’s Food Report comes to you in 3 parts: food I ate, food I made and some news. Food I ate Today for a team lunch at work we went to Free State Kitchen on Maryland St. I’m pretty ashamed to say I haven’t been before considering how long I’ve been meaning to, but it…

The weekly report

Watching Hardly anything. Somehow last week I just wasn’t particularly bothered by tv or films. Listening to Lots and lots of Radio 4. It’s about time you knew that I’m an Archers addict, and discovering I could get the podcast on my phone means my morning walk into work is now spent trying not to laugh and…
