bonfire night and pumpkin pancakes

thanks for the lovely response to my previous post. i'm so glad you liked the pumpkin carving!

so, first up are some recent tasty eats:

pumpkin pancakes - my first ever attempt - were fantastic! i can't believe i've lived so long without these. they are so light and tasty, and go perfect with lingonberry tea.

oven roasted carrots, parsnips, butternut squash and purple carrots with homemade ketchup

i wouldn't usually eat croissants but one with a big glass of green smoothie can't hurt can it. especially when the whole packet was reduced to 55p.

dr oetkers pizza pollo - the only pizza i will allow myself because it's so colorful, has a thin base and tastes really really good.

baked beans and jacket potato. the ultimate bonfire night food.

so our bonfire night was wonderful. it was cold and dry, and who can ask for more than that on such a fantastic occasion? for those of you who have no idea what bonfire night is, click here for a video all about the tradition. and if you want to know all about flapjack, check out my favorite sophie dahl book (i promise you won't regret buying it!) or channel4 for a traditional golden syrup variety.

here's a few photo's my lovely brother took of the occasion:

soup, jacket potatoes, mulled wine, flapjack, chestnuts are all tasty bonfire night food! and we had each and every one on Sunday. mmmm, roasted chestnuts.

  1. Bon fires are so much fun! Although they're a bit too large to get close enough for good s'mores making. :P

  2. Love your pics of the fireworks! Those roasted veggies look extremely tasty. Glad your still rocking the green monsters - love that you have one with a pastry for breakie!

  3. I love your photos! Such whimsy :)

  4. Nice big bon fire! What a blast :)

    Pumpkin pancakes are the best, glad you got to try them out!

  5. Bon fires are so fun! I don't remember the last time I've been to one.

  6. Looks like you had a lot of fun. I recently acquired a tea strainer like the one you have in the picture. Best thing I've ever bought.
