Happy Friday friends! How has your week been so far?
Autumn is really starting to come into full force around here! I spent some time in the garden this past weekend tidying up and weeding. I’m still a terribly poor gardener, but at least things aren’t so messy now!
I also picked up some cute pumpkins to decorate my autumn mantlepiece – I’ll share some pictures of my house decorated for Halloween in next Friday’s post! I noticed that Dr Oetker now have gel colourings on sale in supermarkets – has anyone tried them to make a Rainbow Cake yet?
Oh and I finished off the weekend with Pecan Pie at The Bean (a great local coffee shop!) and Practical Magic – SUCH a great Halloween film.
Blackie helped me to write my latest blog post – she wasn’t scared of my rice krispie ghosts! Neither were the team at Hotel Chocolat – they tried them out this week too! Check out how they decorated their ghosts!
This week we got a delivery from amazon, so the box and packing paper has been the cats favourite toys – who knew a kitten adventure playground could be so cheap to make! They’re also very fond of a large blue ikea bag.
This week I’ve had TWO delicious meals at Hungry Pumpkin in Nottingham too. If you’re ever in my city you have to try it out. They really care about their food and it’s all gorgeous. The fish finger sandwich was the size of my head and soooo good!
Oh, and another thing I like about them is they serve breakfast all day. If you want scrambled eggs on toast at 2pm, you got it! Why don’t more places do this? Breakfast for dinner – it’s a thing!
What are you doing this weekend? I’m heading to the Bramley Apple Festival in Southwell, and on Sunday I’m attending Halloween Cake Club! Lots of baking and cake this weekend – I’m pretty sure there’ll be a cake hangover come Monday!
