Happy March 1st - Happy Saint David's Day. St David is the patron saint of Wales.
Lots to celebrate in March; of course we start with St David's Day, next up for us is the start of daylight saving time on the 14th, which is also National PI (TT) Day & then on the 17th is St Patrick's Day, patron saint of Ireland; the first day of spring to celebrate on March 20th. I have 8 family & friend birthdays to celebrate this month. Surely there must be a cake making event in all this hurrah !?
Currently Successful: Saturday's dinner was two thumbs. After the 2nd bite, Mr Man said, oh this is definitely a make again dinner. Other comments heard around the dinner table were; "this is restaurant quality", "OMG this is SOOOO good", "this is finger licking good" & "I feel quite satisfied by this". I made Ruth's Creamy Tomato & Chicken. You can find Ruth's recipe here: Creamy-roasted-tomato-and-chicken-pasta/ The only change I made was to cook the spinach with the onions & garlic at the beginning as we are not fans of "just wilted spinach". This was such a tasty dinner - thanks Ruth for sharing the recipe. I just hope with tonight's baked mac & cheese I get the same loving!
Currently Reading : HRH Fashions, So Many Thoughts On Royal Style. It's more about the photos than anything written.
Currently Struggling: The ongoing vertigo is certainly continuing to play havoc with my day to day life. I've had a few days where I spent most of the day laying down as it was too much to even sit up. My doctor says to keep at it with the exercises, some people just have the inner ear crystals a little more stuck than others.
Currently Excited: I received a "free" gift from my online grocery chain (Zehrs) as a thank you for joining their membership "club". A package of gourmet dry pasta, a jar of gourmet Pesto sauce, a package of very large dinner (paper) napkins & a wood spoon. All useful gifts.In with this week's click & collect order there was a little Thank You package. In it a mini granola bar, two hard candies & a package of instant hot chocolate.
And now I'll leave you with this only too true, for me, quote ... "sometimes I shock myself with the smart things I say or do, other times I try to get out of the car with my seat belt still on."
