Our Week: 5 to 11 Jan

the week E Had 12.01.13

The week E had…

Made: Chocolate panettone puddings – think bread and butter pudding but made even more delicious, I made this with leftover panettone from Christmas. Paired with chocolate and a good splash of rum this makes for a seriously decadent pud, perfect for a cold winter evening

Did: Manage to survive the first full week at work since Christmas!

Spent: I bought some daffodills to remind myself that spring is just round the corner…

The week B had…

Made: A healthy vegetable and bean casserole – cheap, tasty (and means I feel less guilty about continuing to eat leftover Christmas chocolate!

Did: I popped along to see Les Mis at Phoenix cinema on Friday afternoon – and, although I still love the stage show more, it was still excellent – the old man sat in front of me tearfully exclaimed, ‘Wonderful, just wonderful!’ as the end credits began to roll!

Spent: Just £2 on an AMAZING loaf of olive sourdough bread made by the lovely Jessica, of Leicester Born and Bread

If you click on one link this weekend: For some reason I’m completely obsessed with watching this video over and over: Puppy vs Orange (and now I really want a beagle!)

      Have you ever made panettone before? I attempted it before Christmas and failed miserably!
