Easy lunch

After posting about my lovely leftovers the other night (and rest assured, foie gras and 2002 Bordeaux wine are not usual fare in my house!), I made myself a lovely little lunch at the weekend. I've been terribly busy lately, getting ready for Mr PF imminent arrival, and haven't spent much time in the kitchen.

And sometimes, all you need are good basic ingredients:

Dark rye loaf from the best bakery in town, and other ingredients courtesy of Waitrose. One ingredient is missing though, a chunk of garlic. Fairly important too, as it was scraped against the toasted bread to give it some flavour. You just can't beat that.

So there, here's to good simple food. Have a nice start of week everyone!

When leftovers...

Are better than proper meals...

Mr PF, you were deeply missed xx

Back home in bloom

I'm back home after nearly 3 weeks down in sunny Western Autralia. That's why things have been so silent over here. I had an amazing time, it's such a fantastic country, but I'll save telling you about it for some other time. I'm still readjusting to UK life on my own. I had to leave Mr PF behind, but at least it won't be long until he's home again.

It's been so nice coming back to this country with the sun shining and all the trees in bloom. The temperatures aren't quite up to scratch, especially compared to Perth standards which I very easily got used to! But nonetheless, it's a beautiful place to live, and I'm enjoying every second of it.

I couldn't help but try to bring a few little outdoor blooms indoors, and it cheers me up no end to see all this colour. I haven't had a chance to catch up with anybody's blogs yet, but I'm pretty sure I'll get a feast of spring beauty.

Ladies, I'm back :-)
