Home, sweet home...almost

We are back home!  Well, sort of - I was there for a couple of hours and am now travelling to an event (F1 racing) for the weekend.  As of Monday, however, I will be home for good - finally :-) The kitchen/diner is looking incredible - there are a couple of things still to be finished but I am amazed at how beautiful and light it all looks.  There will be plenty of space to cook, bake and enjoy meals and lots of storage space as well.  One of my favourite things will be the large pull-out larder - no more hunting for ingredients in the depth of the cupboard we had before.  It did the trick (and I am very grateful that we had a kitchen at all) but the new set-up will just be so lovely to be in.  If I was grateful before, I am even more so now!

Have a lovely weekend and I will be back with the first of many new recipes next week...yippee!

Counting down

Well, we are into week 4 of the works at home (not unexpectedly, given all that needed doing) but the good news is that we'll be moving back in on Friday!  I am very excited and can't wait!  I have a long list of recipes to try out as well which will be great.  For now though, here is another little idea to jazz up a classic dish: the good old scrambled eggs.  A fabulous standby meal in itself, why not whisk in a couple of teaspoons of pesto to add something a bit different?  Green eggs might look a bit strange but they sure are tasty :-)
