Hi friends! How is your October going? Last time I checked in I’d just returned from France and now I’m just about to fly off to Amsterdam – tomorrow we’re heading there for four days with some friends to visit other friends who live nearby.
Rest assured that this is literally the only time in my month when I’ve had (or am likely to have) two holidays in two months! Unless I become a millionaire somehow (cakes + cats = ?£?).
Lately I’ve been:
baking! (of course)
I’ve made a few autumnal things lately – caramel apple muffins, halloween cookies (with you on Monday!)
And I’ve been getting very excited about Halloween in general – are you having a party? I love to see all the trick or treaters (last year we had to go out again for more emergency sweets! – hint – do not let them reach into the bowl themselves).
First up – homemade falafels! I was driven to make these as my habit of putting pre bought falafels for my lunchtime salads was getting expensive! I used this recipe but found it oddly flavourless so I’d recommend adding more garlic.
A little tip – when I want something quick, easy and healthy for dinner, I sometimes make an egg veggie scramble! It is even easier if you have pre cooked / roasted vegetables in the fridge already. Add grated cheddar and its delicious!
I also popped to Oscar and Rosie’s to try out their new restaurant. Still indisputably the best pizza in Nottingham (though there aren’t exactly a lot of other contenders!).
Meeting food bloggers!
I went to Chiswick in London at the end of September for Food Blogger Connect. While the event itself was disappointing, I LOVED meeting all the lovely people who until then only lived in my computer! (Especially amazing Sarah of Taming Twins!).

Gawping at the beauty of autumn

Back soon with tales of all the things I’ve eaten in Amsterdam! Doei!
(Keep up with me in the meantime – I’m @kerryedwards on Instagram!)
