Ah, the weekend is upon us once again, it’s been a busy old week putting the Christmas decorations up, attending the school church service, watching Kirstie’s #handmadechristmas and trying out fabric painting! This weekend, I intend to sit back, relax with a nice read…and a good red and enjoy some of these little weekend lovelies.
#1 EAT : Fortnum & Mason Chocolate Mince Pies
Go on, it’s never too early to start and these are irresistible – dark, bitter chocolate with orange and lemon peel. Wow! Armagnac chaser?
#2 BAKE : A Three Cheese Soufflé
Not nearly as tricky nor stuck in the 90s as it sounds, a cheese soufflé is a great way to use up left over cheese from during the week and frankly with a few young salad leaves and a glass of Viognier, it’s a quick and easy Friday night dinner. Here’s a great recipe for cheese soufflé from BBC Good Food that promises an easy bake with the minimal of ingredients. Don’t just stick to cheddar, you can use any cheese here, parmesan, blue cheese or goats cheese. Bon appetit x

#3 BUY : A Pair of Kids Cosy Christmas Pyjamas

Sound revolting? It sort of is but you will be amazed with the results when you start doing a daily rinse with coconut oil. Also known as pulling teeth because of the swishing action back and forth, here’s the best way to polish teeth with coconut oil with CocoWhite. Start now and you could be looking right back at some lovely pearly whites in those Christmas holiday photos!
Oh, and just as a little add on – aren’t these personalised monogram notebooks just so belle as a stylish stocking filler idea?
Have a great weekend!
