238- dinner at our friends Martin and Liz’s tonight and I was very excited. Los is a fantastic cook and we were treated to a roast tomato soup with homemade bread, braised pheasant and both tiramisu and fresh fruit meringues for desert. Obviously this was gracefully accompanied with a festival of wine and followed with cheese.

With everything that’s gone in lately I’ve realised how much I enjoyed just spending time with people I like. We ate, we drank and we chatted. Perfection.

111- slimming world chicken Kievs. Yum!

108- And to celebrate all the hard work I’m having my first Krispy Kreme since Christmas… And it tastes good!

105- what would my life be without Rhubarb muller light? (Taken with instagram)

Last night we were guests of Janet and Jon at their first supper club in Cardiff. The produce came from Riverford with bread from a great artisan bakery and the culinary skills of Bev Reed.

The food was served on the tables in massive bowls with everyone helping themselves to steaming piles of beautiful veg and a lamb dish. We get so used to being served meals in restaurants it was quite odd at first passing the mash to the stranger next to you and asking another to hand over the carrots. But this definitely encourages conversation and the atmosphere of the evening was very that of a big family meal.

For dessert we had rhubarb tarts which were absolutely amazing. The recipe is a closely guarded secret but I will be looking out for her stall at farmers markets.

It was a lovely evening and I was able to catch up with some friends that I don’t see enough!

59-Without doubt Rhubarb is the best muller light flavour

51- YUM

20-After a very stressful week, I  decided the only way to celebrate friday was a trip to Cardiff’s “New York Deli”!

I havent visited for years and I have no idea why. The sandwiches and hoagies are masterpieces filled with mountains of meaty goodness!

Harriet the owner is always friendly and welcoming  flanked by a bevvy of eternally young and dishy men behind the counter.

I  plumped  for the monstrous new york hoagie which was exactly what I needed for a grizzly friday!

14- Chapter holds so many memories for me. As a teenager with an interest in films it offered a rotating selection of cool independents and foreign films.

A recent massive redevelopment has turned the old hippy kitchen and courtyard where I spent so many good nights with friends into a contemporary bar and cafe.

The food is a bit more slick and canteen style than before but the bar continues to offer an impressive selection of cask ales and continental beers.

Even though its been made up a little, Chapter retains its friendly atmosphere being as great a place to be on your own with a newspaper and coffee as a meeting place for friends and family
