The week B had…
Made: While in Paris I bought a little cardboard Eiffel Tower as a momento, and this week managed to construct it – a lot more fiddly than I’d anticipated, I nearly had to bring in a support team!
Spent: Seemingly lots of money on bits and bobs – you know when everything runs out at once?
If you click on one link this weekend: Slightly oddly I’m going to direct you towards a post from 2010… Laura of make do and mend has just celebrated her 5th blog anniversary, and as part of her retrospective linked to this lovely travel journal she made – has given me some ideas for my own!
The week E had…
Made: Ham Hock terrine with watercress and quails eggs inspired by this brilliant recipe
Spent: I managed to source local meat for my mothers day menu, it’s taken a bit longer than if I had just been to the local supermarket (I had to visit two butchers!) but in the end I got exactly what I wanted and was educated by my butcher on how best to prepare and cook my meat. A lovely personal experience that has ensured I will be returning soon
