This Meat Free Monday I’m very excited to share this amazing Fava bean dip… Ful Madamous, which I recently discovered. Ful is a traditional Arabic food made by the exciting new brand Cuzena, these pots come in three flavours, this is the Sweet Caramelised Onion Ful… they are seriously tasty!
What beautiful weather we’re having this weekend! There was no doubt how I was going to spend this weekend… in my garden. First day of the year I’ve spent time out there, I love just wandering around admiring the plants and flowers I’ve grown – the garden was empty when we moved in so everything out there is all my own work. I had little tidy up, put up some new trellis, brought out the garden furniture and gathered together some tired looking pots and an old broken watering can which I decided to bring to life. I was also given an old chimnea recently and I decided to set that up a planter. With £10 spent in Morrisons on new plants (that included a Wisteria and Clematis, which I also potted) and some old paint I had stored in the garage it was a happy little weekend project that brought some more colour into the garden and gave me a good dose of vitamin D.
It’s NON FOOD FRIDAY! Here’s a little sneaky peak from the fabulous Rug Hooking book by Carole Rennison that I had the pleasure of shooting this week for SearchPress.

This week I’ve been having all the fun, styling and shooting these tiny mini hoops for Dandelyne‘s upcoming book…aren’t they the cutest?!
I’ve been feeling so poorly all week so today I’m posting something pink and fluffy to cheer me up… Turkish Delight!
I’ve had my French Knitting doll since I was five years old, it’s had it’s pin replaced over the years but I still love it. It’s easy and fun to do, it’s also very handy to carry around with you (I took mine out with me yesterday and knitted whilst the kids played in the park). The dilemma is what to make with it once you’ve made a string. You can thread wire through it and make words or shapes (like hearts) or use it as chunky wool and knit with it. Or like me add a big button and make a lovely bracelet!
(You can see me modelling it on my Instagram feed)
