I was going to blog today about a possible new dip or spread for bread, but have to admit to feeling a bit jaded/tired after a busy weekend away! Hubs and I did a lot of driving over the weekend to get to a lovely wedding reception in Bradford, UK.
I thought you might like to see a piccie of the most amazing chandelier in a very grand ballroom – a superb setting for a wedding!
Sadly, the food was pretty predictable. I ended up eating a few lettuce leaves for lunch (why are people so obssessed with eating dairy?) and rice/chips with tomato and cucumber in the evening! However the fruit salad for dessert was delicious and fresh!
I did a bit of food shopping today and stocked up on some organic cupboard staples – cannellini beans, green lentils, cashew nuts, almonds, black rice, bread flour, and a beautiful organic butternut squash which was calling to me! So a few dishes coming up at the end of the week. We have a bank holiday this next weekend in the UK, so we’re all looking forward to three days off!
I’ve never cooked with black rice before, so if you have any useful tips or recipe suggestions please do leave them in the comments below!
