Meat Free Monday – Nowt Poncy

I’ve been so looking forward to posting this Meat Free Monday… I finally got my hands on a jar on Nowt Poncy’s Curry Sauce and I have to say it was so worth the wait! It’s vegan friendly so I decided to keep my curry Vegan too and cooked it with cauliflower and veg, but I hear it’s perfect with prawns.  This has got the be the most authentic tasting ready made curry sauce I’ve ever tasted… it taste like you made it yourself because it has a wonderful chunky tomato sauce base.  It’s nothing like any other curry sauce you buy in the supermarkets, it’s  closer to the authentic recipes you may have tasted with traditional cooked curries.  Just divine!

52 Weekends No.30 – April Showers

I find it rather cosy when it’s heavily raining outside and you are wrapped up all snuggly and warm on the sofa listening to it tapping on the windows. So when the weather forces you to stay in what better way to spend your time than making something crafty.

This weekend’s project, inspired by the April showers is a cute cloud trinket holder made with white air dry clay, a cute, quick and easy project, give it a try!

52 weekends No. 29 – Pottering

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.

52 Weekends No.28 – For The Love of French Knitting

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!
