It's here you know...Spring.... look at the photo of the mini daffs....
We've even had a few salad breakthroughs... its that time of year when there's going to be a lot more colour in our lives and on our plates! We have fully embraced this with a rainbow of new tasty salads. Below is our tangy, limey Salsa... a Pear, mint, beetroot and toasted Walnut salad... A herby Couscous with some stunning Romanesco, dill, baby courgette and parsley... and to top it off our special Noodles, dressed with Tamari, sweet chilli, sesame and crispy veggies..... ohh go on then... fill my plate up!
We've even had chance to get to grips with perfecting another Gluten Free cake.... a delicious Apple and Almond cake that is just divine!
And for all those Cheese Scone lovers out there, we have added those to the menu permanently!! They were getting snapped up so quickly we thought we'd better keep making them! Did I mention that we serve them warm with butter and Damson Chutney??!!
Another reason I know that spring is here is I got to hold my first Lamb! Dropped in on our friends at Bank Ground Farm on Coniston Water, and one of their ewes had given birth a few days before.... CUTE or what!??
Had an awesome lunch at Broughton Village Bakery...we recommend a trip to see them if you're down that way.
The rainy season seems to have ended and people are drying out. There has been amazing community spirit to support people that have been affected by the floods. If you would like to know how to help out, visit Cumbria Community Foundation for more info. Cumbria is very open, yeah there's a few things left to fix but people are still here running their businesses!
Take a look at this video that was recently made to promote Ambleside and what it has to offer... made by the Team of Love Ambleside - check out their facebook page for updates on whats happening in the area.
Best go practice some more art work on those lattes... i'm aiming for a unicorn riding off into the sunset next!
