In what has become an eagerly awaited (I believe this is true for everyone involved!) festive tradition among myself and a group of very lovely and talented ladies, our annual lunch took place last weekend at Vanessa’s pretty home <3
Besides great, homemade food (we’re each delegated a course and/or drinks/snacks), you can also trust these ladies for the most beautifully presented and thoughtful gifts and as ever, the best of company! Unfortunately this year, one of the merry bunch had to miss the festivities due to sickness, but she was there in spirit nonetheless (get well soon, Carla!).
Even though this is another food post – making that two in a row – it will probably be the last in a while, so I thought it’d be a shame not to share it with you! The reason why I won’t be sharing photos of culinary escapades in the near future is a simple (and boring) one… you see, I aim to be on a health kick for the coming weeks, so any adventures in the kitchen will be understandably limited!
Seeing as healthy eating has been scheduled to start from tomorrow, this weekend I was (of course!) especially naughty 😉 For lunch I whipped out this yummy tuna pasta bake that was a favourite of my brother’s when he was on the island and went down a treat.
No naughty day is complete without dessert, so back I went to my new baking book and produced these vanilla cupcakes. Unfortunately, they didn’t turn out to be the greatest tasting cupcakes to come of my cupcake-baking hands, and I think I’ll stick to my other cupcake recipe book in future, but hey – they still look nice, and will certainly not last long regardless!
