Lots of cooking, some baking and a “failed” date night…


The second full week in November was quite chilled after a lovely weekend away – just what I needed!

On the Monday I did laundry (love it!), had Shake Shack for dinner and watched TV before going to bed early. A really good Monday routine – apart from the burger.


Tuesday I started reading Northern Lights by Philip Pullman as I wanted to read it before we watch the series. I also watched some TV, catching up om The Morning Show and FBI. For dinner I had fish tacos!



Wednesday I made a really lovely halloumi wrap for lunch and in the evening I had noodles with cucumber. (Will post both these recipes soon!) I also watched a film that I missed at the cinema; Colette with Keira Knightley and Dominic West based on a true story.


The next day I did lots of work errands running around the city and taking some nice pictures as I went. Love being out and about on a dry day! For lunch I had leftover noodles topped with my new love crispy chilli flakes in oil. So so good! And for dinner I made tortilla pizzas.



Friday night I made chicken satay and a lovely pudding with raspberries and browned butter (!), will post these soon too!



Saturday I made cookies and chilled during the day and in the evening we went out for dinner but sadly didn’t have the best experience. Bad service and atmosphere. Luckily the company was amazing; we honestly have fun wherever we are so it didn’t ruin our date night, the food was good (but not amazing) and the wine really good.



On Sunday we had a nice lie-in followed by our usual breakfast AND brioche French toast (will post this too, but so behind at the moment)…



…and in the evening I cooked us a little homage dinner to Martin of Tours which we celebrate in my part of Sweden the week before. We had cream of mushroom soup to start and duck instead of goose as the main course.
