Bit of a late Weekend Re-cap

As a 'reward' for being brave with my first driving lesson (big baby I know!!) we made Rocky Road on Friday night.

 I have to admit I've only made it twice before...it is so so nice! I refuse to think about the amount of calories that go into it....I mean this isn't something you'd eat if you were trying to be healthy. This is something you must share!

There isn't an exact recipe I have followed. I literally broke up some digestive biscuits and placed it on a baking tray. Throw in some Marshmallows, Maltesers and pour over melted chocolate (a bit of butter and golden syrup was added to the chocolate) and put in the fridge to set.

 Cut with a pizza slicer and put in a pretty tin. We used this one from Ian's house..it is hilarious!

Very true!

We went to Ikea the next day and I found those beloved cups. They are much prettier in real life and look great on display.

I can't wait to have my own kitchen to put them in!

We went for a walk (to walk off all those calories!!) when the weather was okay.

It's amazing to think how different the park would look in the summer.

On Sunday we spent the day keeping cosy indoors. The rain fell so hard and it was freezing, it felt like winter all over again ! I really hate feeling the cold..it gives me dull aches in my legs that linger for hours....

...but it was nothing a Sunday Roast couldn't fix : )

  4. The rocky road looks delicious! I have never had a go at making it myself, I will have to give it a try. I love the Fatkins diet tin :P
    The cups of just so pretty, I like the soft colours of them.
    Looks like a lovely place to go for a walk. I stayed inside on the Sunday as well and just took it easy..it was a bit miserable out with all the rain.
    Have a great day :)

  5. found your sweet blog and wanted to say hi! love the cups from Ikea I can feel a trip coming on!! hope you have a wonderfully happy weekend sweetie

    Bee happy x
    Have a delicious day!

  6. ooh, I love those Ikea cups. I need them. If I can buy them online I'm going to get them!

    By the way, not a big baby over the driving lessons. they are very stressful. I don't drive, but I did take a lot of lessons and failed the test twice. It's really not for me, and the world is a safer place because of it,but I remember the lessons and how I'd get out afterwards feeling shaky and sweating buckets. So I wish you good luck with them.

    Ah, the Baker Brothers. Well, I've yet to make anything really, but I shall. It's my rule in life, as long as I make at least one recipe from each cookbook I buy, then I can carry on buying them! I am really tempted to make the hollandaise sauce, they make it sound so simple. And I am absolutely going to try out the cucumber pickles, and make the sliders. Not sure I'll make the breads though, the sour dough bread with the starter scares me a little!

    Lovely photos, the pics from your walk are beautiful.

    have a glorious weekend xx

    1. Thanks for your comment Sadie. The cups are a lovely chalky pink and brown...I love them!

      The driving is going okay. I had my second lesson today and went on main roads...scary!! I'm slowly getting the hang of it though so fingers crossed i'll be fine.

      I'm constantly seeing the next cook book I want! I have way too many baking books now and need some meal ones eventually.

      Have a great weekend!


  7. oh, and I have started poaching my eggs as per the BB instructions. They come out perfectly. Normally my poached eggs are 'ok', but now they are perfect!


  8. I have the milkshake cups in pink! Absolutely love them!
