Food for thought

Thank you to everyone who has entered my giveaway - you still have until the end of next Friday to do so if you haven't already!

I treated myself yesterday to two new recipe books -

I already have the first Lisa Faulkner one, and really liked it so when I saw the second for a bargain £5 I snapped it up!

I'd sort-of heard of this book/blog but hadn't found the time to check it out.  When I saw this in the supermarket yesterday, I decided to grab it as it was half price.  I've had a flick through and it looks like it has some good recipes in it.  I don't know if I could manage to only spend £10 a week feeding my family but I certainly admire what Jack has done.

I've still got the ends to sew in on my shawl and my cardigan to finish - I'm halfway through the first sleeve (I hate don't like making sleeves, very tedious) but I'm determined to crack on and finish it!  Downside is that the weather has been so mild I've not worn any of the chunky knitwear I've made - not even my 'never to be repeated' poncho!  Still, mustn't grumble!

  1. I really like baking but I only have me to eat the results of my labour. This is a quandary ;0)
    I don't mind making sleeves, just sewing them in.

  2. I will check out a girl called Jack, not heard of that one before...Thanks Hon :) x

  3. I didn't know Lisa Faulkner had another book out! I have her first one and I love it, it's definitely one of my most used cookbooks.
