10 Things That've Made Me Happy Lately #21

2 June 2019 3 comments

one. // A couple of really good meals - venison and lemon sole (ergh lemon sole really is my favourite) at one of our favourite restaurants, Clayton's Kitchen, and a little treat c/o Caley's Brasserie in Windsor - I had a slow-cooked pork in masterstock main and it was stickily unctious and divine.

two. // The vegetables and herbs in the garden are flourishing! The lemon verbena and oregano are veracious. I can't wait to harvest some sweet, baby peas and pea shoots and toss them into some pasta with amalfi lemons.

three. // Any sort of salsa-verde-style sauce, and Waitrose's frozen tarte tatin - really wasn't expecting it to be as florally fragrant and delicious as it was.

four. // Everything at Evolve Beauty. Really.

five. // Eliza - Livid and Alone & Unafraid.

six. // Queer Eye - feels slightly contrived but nevertheless upbeat and life-affirming. F and I are late to Season 3. Bobby and Antoni are my favourites - who are yours?

seven. // Farm shop shopping and produce. I picked up about as many rhubarb stalks as I could get two greedy hands around for about.. £3 the other day. Made rhubarb and rosemary jelly to go with some roast pork and BOY. Spring really is the best. In fact, here's the recipe:

- a bunch of rhubarb (around 350g)
- a granny smith apple, unpeeled, chopped
- 1 lemon, the juice and seeds of
- 200g sugar
- 1 generous tbsp (probably closer to 2 level) sherry vinegar (or red wine or cider vinegar)
- 2 big rosemary sprigs
- 750ml water

- Bring the rhubarb, apples, lemon and water to a boil. Simmer for roughly an hour.
- Strain through a fine sieve into a clean pan. Add sugar and rosemary sprigs. Simmer for an hour.
- Remove from heat, stir in vinegar and decant into sterilised jars. Apparently keeps for around 3 months.

eight. // Booking  a holiday?! In the most spontaneous fashion - F literally rang me up and asked, "where would you like to go next?" I said, "I've no idea.. maybe Porto?", we had a little look online and the flights were booked.. eek!

nine. // This Samoyed and Millie. I want a Millie. She looks like the roly-poly-est dog ever.

ten. // Loving Lucy Wood's videos at the moment.

  3. Such a nice things, I'm really really love listening to music especially EDM music, EDM is a trend now, we can see it on youtube, and each song on youtube is able to be mixed to EDM. The sound is good if you listen with the nice speakers such as ceiling speaker( Available on Sovann Lun store). The next thing will be on the ground or on the grass, harmony with the nature and enjoy the fresh air. It'll be great!!!
