EDIT: Oh, balls! I’m using Windows Live Writer to update pic-heavy posts but this is the second time it’s replaced an older post with a newer one rather than making 2 separate entries. Apologies, folks…
Sorry things have been a bit quiet around here!
Before I give a proper update, there are some photos that need to be shared – I had a little play with my Dad’s fancy camera whilst in Southend. So I now present to you…
PURE UNADULTERATED FOOD PORN!
Plus a little glimpse of the madness that is family life at my parent’s place 😉
I. AM. SO. JEALOUS!
They haven’t decided on tiles or colours for paint yet though…
Mum doing her vegetable chopping ninja routine!
Despite chef training, my brother battles with pastry…
Whereas I am a pro! Eating the rolling-pin is optional.
This recipe calls for a seriously disturbing amount of chocolate.
It’s a miracle! Our old kitchen barely fit 2 people in together, now there’s room to spare!
Can’t just let it go to waste… lick the chocolate from the bowl!
…or dip raw parsnip in it!
There were actually veggies involved in the meal..
…and roast ‘taters!
Very yummy roast beef (apologies to non-carnivores!)
Then chocolate heaven! With an orange sauce. Well that makes it kinda healthy, doesn’t it?
We had spare ‘goo’ so we made smaller ones…
And then little baby ones!
The secret ingredient! I’m allowing this not to count towards my alcohol ban… 😉
Then I stalked the cats with the camera. Buffy was not a willing model.
Cleo was more obliging! Or just too lazy to try and run away?
Hope you enjoyed the photos! Does anyone have any camera recommendations? After playing with something better than my point-and-shoot I think I’ll be investing in something less basic. Any advice would be much appreciated!
Also, HARRY POTTER! ONLY 3 SLEEPS!
