On Saturday 22nd March 2014, I married my partner of 4 years (and Lillee’s daddy) in the church my mom and dad were married in, and then later Lillee was christened in. It was such an amazing day, it all went nearly perfectly. A few issues with timing, and as much as I didn’t want to be I ended up being late! But never mind!

I know I haven’t been around much recently, but I’m hoping you’ll all bear with me for a few more weeks while we settle into married life!

Savory rice…

I love savory rice, it’s so versatile I can use up any veggies I have in and it always tastes good! One of the best things about this dish is that it can be eaten hot or cold making it ideal for dinner one night hot then the leftovers as lunch the next day!

•500g rice
•1 onion
•2 stock cubes(I use chicken)
•1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
•seasoning
•10g butter
•2 cloves garlic minced
•teaspoon oil
•any other veg (this time I used asparagus, celery, carrots, mushrooms, peas, sweetcorn, cauliflower and courgette)

Heat the butter and oil in a large pan. Chop all the vegetables to around the same size. Add onions and carrots first, cook for a few minutes and add the rest of the veg, stock cubes, Worcestershire sauce and garlic. Put a lid on and leave to soften until cooked. Meanwhile put the rice on to cook according to packet instructions. When the rice is cooked, drain well and stir into the vegetables. Season to taste.

Goes well with meats, fish, or just by itself.

Serves approximatly 10 people.

Enjoy!

Button Heart…

Tomorrow, me and Dan have been engaged for three years!! Soo I made him this card as part of our celebrations.

To make it…
•assorted buttons
•card blank
•glue
•pencil

First, I drew a rough heart shape on the card. Then I filled it in with various buttons making sure I covered the pencil marks. I placed the buttons first then glued them down and that’s it!

Hope you like it…

New things…

I ordered a load of skin and hair care off amazon last week, and they’ve finally arrived! Can’t wait to get using it all to try and get my skin in order for the wedding! So far I’ve only used the revitalising eye roll on, but I found it really seemed to work on making my eyes feel more awake with a fab cooling sensation. I’ll let you know how I get on with the rest soon!

Sunday Afternoon Baking…

This afternoon, myself and Lillee spent some time baking. We had a fab time making Red Velvet brownies! They came out all fudgey in the middle and really tasty! Mine don’t look as good as the original recipe, however I didn’t have enough food colouring and as I took them out of the tin it fell apart! But never mind they are still really nice and we had such a lovely time making them. I really reccomend this recipe as they were so easy but still effective!
