lemon spelt biscuits and french fish

a really good week so far. i've been up at the allotment digging and planting loads, so i've got a little tan! every time i come back from the allotment i feel so rejuvenated, my skin is glowing and i just want to eat vegetables forever. it's so good for the soul.

plus hours can be spent up there without you even noticing, like you'll look at you watch and be like, 'i've been up here for two hours, seriously? it only felt like half an hour'. it's weird how time flies when you're having fun!

some delicious eats from this week:

♥ buttery leeks - from a neighbouring allotment owner who had too many leeks, with provencal herbed sardines (oh my goodness, how delish) on vogels with pepper salsa

a lonely celeriac

celeriac and carrot soup with herbed oil on toast (leftover from the sardines)

fruit tea infusing in the boiled water, summer berries is strong and you can actually taste the berries, unlike most fruit teas which smell way better than they taste

lemon spelt biscuits with almonds - another work in progress. i will let you know as soon as i come up with the perfect spelt biscuit recipe, i promise!

mustard and lemon mackerel with winter salad and potato spinach pakoras - i challenged mum to cook something from nigel slater's real fast food cookbook, which she loves, so it wasn't too hard for her to pick something yummy or cook it.

buckwheat pancakes with peanut butter, agave nectar and bananas. what a beautiful way to start the day!

organic hummus, organic winter salad, organic celery, organic tomatoes, organic italian olive oil. yes, i did feel amazing after eating it! it was followed with organic medjool dates :)

currently listening to: i'm not your toy by la roux
