It is interesting the way that this blog has evolved since its implementation in January this year when the concentration was on local cafes and teashops here in the fine city of Nottingham. Thanks to all you lovely readers worldwide and your great support throughout my blogging, I now seem to be concentrating on food in my home and I wanted to invite you all into my kitchen. It may get crowded! lol
On the days that I feel like cooking up a dish that will last for three or four days or freeze well if I bulk cook I am the most happy - nothing to do with the amount of beer or wine I consume during the cooking process I assure you! hic! Also if I am in the mood to make bread or do the mixing and blending that is required for making buttery French Madelienne cakes which fill my small kitchen with a rich lemony almond scent I feel that I am in heaven. I swear that if I am quick I can catch my neighbours sniffing at my letter box in desperation to somehow devour my delicious cakes as they barely leave the oven!
Regretably, I don't have a huge amount of guests around to sample my food as I am pretty skint and presently out of work but, when I can, I will enjoy treating a friend or neighbours to a meal or culinary treat. Their enjoyment and friendship are the most important ingredients and I do my utmost to make sure that their visits are a relaxed and enjoyable affair. My immediate neighbour Joanne is a great one for sharing food and I thoroughly enjoy the possiblities for reciprication with her. It makes the world a warmer and friendlier place to live in.
