5 Things I'm Loving Right Now

My last 5 Things I'm Loving Right Now post was back at the beginning of November so as I nurse my turning 33 hangover I thought I would share another one with you. These past couple of weeks have been filled with lots of things I love, family, friends, cinema and band dates plus food of course! so here are 5 of those things.....


Homemade gluten free mince pies made by my friend EmmaLi, she made these with a frangipane topping like a bake well tart and they were bloody delicious! I love all things almond so I was more then happy to devour a few of these, I even had one for breakfast last Sunday! 

 

I don't often get flowers given to me so when my friend Judith turned up last Saturday evening for our girls night with this bunch of pink roses it made my day. They are so pretty and have bought some much needed to colour to the past grey days : )


Meridian Nut Butters! I am a self confessed nut butter addict especially almond so when I was offered some from the kind peeps at Meridian I said a big yes! I like almond butter straight up of the spoon, on toast, rice cakes or as a porridge topping its just soooooo good. Peanut butter I like especially with banana or on a rice cake topped with cheese that is an amazing combo and the cashew  butter is my favourite for putting into smoothies like the Chai, Cashew and Banana smoothie I made the other day, it makes a it so creamy. A big thank you to Meridian for my nut butters and a massive thumbs up to the taste of all the above nut butters they are feeding my addiction nicely!


Kale has got to get a mention here, I don't eat it nearly enough especially as its one of my favourite winter greens, the cavalo nero variety I got in last weeks veg box is my absolute fav. I have been sautéing it with olive oil, garlic and mushrooms and it tastes beautiful, I will be hoping for more of that to be included in my veg box.


Lastly I just had to include my nephew Joey, last weekend was an absolute joy spending time with him, my mum and sister. He is the most adorable little nugget and I wish they didn't live so far. Those lashes?!

Question:

Whats are you loving right now?
