bye bye coffee...tomorrow i start my drugs on round 2 of our fertility treatment. i had a last rendezvous with my cafetiere this morning. a breakfast for one in the sunshine. for the last month or so since the end of our 1st ivf cycle i've let a little caffeine back into my life : ) but now i've decided to go back to being as healthy as possible. not sure if it makes any difference...thing is i'll do anything i can to try for the best. so hello vanilla rooibos.
june 12th is our wedding anniversary. 4 years ago we were excitedly setting up the marquee with many home-made bits and pieces...including these napkins which my mum lovingly stitched.
afternoon treat served with yoghurt
nectarines with lemon and ginger
(oven set at about 200 degrees)
6 quartered nectarines
squeeze over the juice of a lemon
grate a thumb sized piece of fresh ginger and
sprinkle a tablespoon of dark muscavado sugar
over the fruit
mix with the spoon to coat the nectarines
pop in the oven for about half an hour
or a bit longer if not too ripe
(i think this would make a nice summer crumble filling too)
have you seen these? talk about judging a book by it's cover : )
i have this one lined up for my next bedside read...
