Wonderful Wednesday 36

Can I hear you say "perfect Saturday morning"?!

Launching straight into the wonderful this week - I am SO very ready for the long weekend that's so close I can practically touch it!

****

♥ Easter chocolate...I know I know, Easter hasn't actually happened yet but I haven't given up chocolate this year and I've been making up for it in advance! No actual 'big' Easter eggs, mind, just the small bags of deliciousness - galaxy eggs, mini creme eggs and of course, mini eggs. Yum. There's something extra tasty about chocolate when it's in egg form.

♥ Sunny weekends... Wasn't this weekend absolutely gorgeous?! Not including the horrific migraine I got on Sunday, it was a beautiful weekend. There was ice cream, sitting outside with my book and lots of fresh sun-dried laundry. There's nothing like the first properly sunny weekend of the year to really lift the spirits.

♥ Avocados... In line with the improved weather, we've been moving away from the winter stews and towards the summer salads, with liberal helpings of avocado which I absolutely love and usually forget about until the season has passed. I'm on the hunt for more tasty salads to enjoy over the forthcoming months so do let me know if you have any favourites to share - Helen, I've already bookmarked your mouth-watering celeriac, beetroot, apple and walnut salad.

♥ Sunday morning baking... I was actually organised enough to do some baking on Sunday morning, to accompany the papers which my husband had thoughtfully popped out to pick up earlier. They may have slightly fallen apart in places and oozed molten sugar all over the tray, but these little cinnamon buns were still moreishly tasty. Gluten free too! (Thank goodness for the invention of gluten free ready-made pastry...)


♥ Short weeks... Need I say anymore? Two short weeks and a four day weekend - I can't wait!

♥ Ru Paul's Drag Race... Does anyone else watch this? I saw a few people mention it on twitter and thought I'd give it a whirl (how on earth can there be 9 series already?!) and I ADORE it, it has quickly become such a guilty pleasure. I've also started series 8 too just to get a Ru-fix while waiting for the newest series 9 episode to be released.

♥ Do let me know what's made your week a little rosier by leaving me a comment below (I do love comments!) or dropping me a tweet (I'm @happygoluckycat) or better yet, why not join the fabulous bunch of #WonderfulWednesday bloggers?

It's in sight!

  1. Those buns look FAB where's the recipe?! I'm not usually a baking girl but YES to that salad it's so good - here are all of mine: https://roastchickenandacountrywalk.com/category/salad-2/ although sometimes a simple Greek Salad just hits the spot! Do you recommend The Other Mrs Walker? Always on the hunt for more books!

    1. I followed this recipe - http://glutenfreecuppatea.co.uk/2017/01/04/recipe-gluten-free-cinnamon-rolls-dairy-free-vegan-using-jus-rol-gluten-free-puff-pastry/ Completely straightforward :) Thank you for the link to your salad recipes, your food always looks so good!

      I absolutely recommend The Other Mrs Walker - it's not a light-hearted read but so gripping. Let me know what you think if you do pick it up. C x

  2. Those cinnamon buns look yummy, I need one of those with my coffee! I'm planning to make the traditional rice Krispie egg nests later. You can never have too much easter chocolate.

    1. Thank you Kate. Baking always relaxes me, whenever I do it I tell myself that I should do it more regularly but then somehow forget! Hope you're having a wonderful Easter xx

  5. Those cinnamon buns look to die for and there is NOTHING better than the smell of cinnamon wafting out of the oven in the morning! You have inspired me to make some of my own now.

    Hope you had a fabulous four day weekend! xx
