Notebook Monday

Welcome to Notebook Monday!!


I have had the pleasure of visiting this lovely place, the shop, the tearoom, 100 acre wood....its well worth a visit.

-Recipe
Try penne pasta with asparagus and mushrooms in a sauce made up of garlic, butter and creme fraiche.

-Wonderful treats for a lovely day
Open the windows/plenty of flowers/candles and low dimmed lights/
relaxing music....i like Katie Melua, Jack Johnson and Jazz/ a good book/DVDs like Chocolat or old musicals/
Teapots with cups and saucers/ yummy organic food....cheese and breads, dark chocolate, strawberries and cream. Perfect for getting ready for Spring.

-Chocolate beauty
Don't just eat chocolate.....surround yourself....

Crabtree and Evelyn cocoa butter, nutmeg and cardamom body butter:


Naked cocoa butter revealed body butter:

or Philosophy chocolate chip cookies bath and shower gel


I love this site for childrens toys.
We like sophie the giraffe and the peg doll kits.


-A really yummy sauce to dip potato wedges into
Buy a sweet chilli sauce (we like blue dragon) and mix into a tiny bowl with your fave mayo.


Now onto some things from the week:

I have been enjoying hot chocolate with rasin and cinnamon bread in the kitchen


Whilst unwrapping gorgeous packages


Thank you Mrs B. I love my new pinny.
You can visit Mrs B here and then browse her lovely goodies to buy.

I have also been creating folders to keep my puttery posts and other things from this lady.
 
  
  
 
You can purchase your own puttery treats from her site.

Have a good week all
