I am in a rut as to what to make for out weekend brunch's! I seem to have run out of my already very limited creativity. I am not the best cook in the world by far and need some simple, refreshing ideas for a light brunch before lunch (sometimes after...). Once again I am turning to pinterest for some inspiration, and whereas the food looks so yummy, I am not sure I would actually have the time/money to recreate a lot of it!
I think I am going to set myself the challenge to come up with a new, interesting dish every weekend that is quick and easy to make!
I was rooting about in my wardrobe the other day and came across this gorgeous Primark skirt. This is a re-posted post from about a year ago, but these pictures were taken after Alice was born. And the skirt fitted me perfectly. I tried it on yesterday and I can barely get it over my hips, let alone zip it up! I can not believe that I lost all that baby weight within weeks to get back to a size 8, only to put it on again a year later! Ok, so I'm not a size 20 and I am generally fairly happy with my weight, but knowing I was smaller after giving birth than I am now is a bit of a knock!
And before you ask, no. I am not planning on going on any kind of diet, I like food too much! And I eat fairly healthily anyway, and exercise too! I think this skirt must have shrunk in the wash... right?
So this weekend brunch thing we are trying to do (so that we can actually sit down together and eat a meal once a week!) is actually going pretty well! I am definitely going to start experimenting with some new recipes soon, as I think the weekend is the perfect time to try some new things! Mainly because Dave can watch Alice and I can complete a recipe from start to finish without having to stop every two seconds to see to Alice.
We just had burger and a salmon role this week (mainly because we only had two burgers left and were still hungry). I would like to try to poach an egg again (think I'm going to buy one of those things the egg sits in... sounds simpler!) and I would like to make my own bread!
I am on the hunt for some good food blogs so if you know of any, do let me know!
