Recently I have been the queen of the ‘twenty minute – one pan – five ingredient’ dinner. It’s not that I don’t enjoy cooking marathons – spending an afternoon in the kitchen by myself, completely zoned out and entirely fixated on flavours and smells. But lately I have reserved this for the weekends. Weeknights represent the 100m sprint. Bursting through the door after a run we head straight for the kitchen and with silent agility we dart around the kitchen gathering ingredients. We instinctively know what we need to do to fill our plates with protein, carbohydrates, fibre, vitamins and minerals and its only once we sit down to consume that we relax and converse. I didn’t want to be one of those people that rush through the week but it just happened – I guess around the same time as practicality, responsibility and reliability entered my life. This month is for people like us, it’s for the day before the trip to the grocery store and it’s for hungry, impatient mouths.
This month we are also celebrating our 3rd birthday! We are so excited we baked an orange and almond cake which we will share with you on the 15th.
Thanks to our loyal readers who, as it seems from the comments we receive, are just as passionate about food as us. We say it time and time again but we feel so lucky to be able to experiment and trial recipes, style, photograph and write as well as share and talk about food every day!
