Monday Afternoon

1. Mid afternoon stroll 2. Mid afternoon stroll to the post office
3. Afternoon brunch 4. Luke measuring out ingredients
5. Making banana bread 6. Burrito mix 7. Banana bread & tea

Luke & I had the day together, so we started it off with a big lazy sleep in. And it was a rainy Monday morning, so really what else are you going to do. When the rain suddenly decided to stop and the sun came out we got up and planned our day. We decided to make banana bread, do some banking, pick up our much anticipated passports, go grab some coffees & make some delightful banana bread to have with cups of tea. It started to rain late in the afternoon, so we swung by my parents house for a quick drink while we used their dryer. When we got home, our house smelt like delicious banana bread and honey. While that rested straight from the oven, we made vegetarian burritos and watched 'Revenge'. 

It was a pretty lovely way to spend a Monday afternoon, and to finish the evening off with some home made banana, chocolate & walnut bread with some tea & 'Daria'.

    1. Same, same! And sadly they don't happen as often as I'd like. One of the perks of being married to a chef.

    1. You will never catch me in the kitchen baking unless Luke is there helping me! It's always so much funner in pairs.

    1. How evil does the mum seem! My parents have a burnt copy of the first season, so I think i'll borrow to watch. I'm so hopeless trying to watch things week to week on tv.

  13. Okay, well.. I was going to pretend that I am not starving, and avoid eating at 11 at night. Nah, your blog has me convinced otherwise:)

    I hope you had a wonderful Valentines..

  14. I love food photos! You and your beau seem to have fun cooking together - that's awesome! I love his tattoos and the ones I've seen of yours.
    Oh, and banana bread is my favorite. I used to babysit for a fresh loaf. That was my payment. Lol
