Hello my friends!
Hoping you have all had a fantastic week. I have been busy as a beaver selling many teapots! My work is holding its annual teapot festival. We have literally thousands of teapots for sale! It’s nuts. As you can imagine I am thoroughly enjoying myself being surrounded by all things tea. I even rewarded myself with a red riding hood tea for one set. It is the cutest ever! Photographic evidence will be given in an upcoming post.
It has been a tasty week on the food front. I must say I have been quite resourceful this week having avoided eating out/taking my lunch to work every day. Earlier in the week my boyfriend and I had fun making our own pizzas. Mine was heavily influenced by Miss Katey at Bonnesante. We both used pita bread as the base and Ben whipped up the pizza sauce from a mixture of crushed tomatoes, tomato paste and fresh oregano and basil. My toppings were baby spinach, onion, green capsicum, mushrooms, black olives, zucchini, baby eggplant, pineapple and some dollups of hommus on top. After Benny inhaled his pizza he commented on it being the best pizza he has ever eaten. And trust me, that is saying something coming from him (he even works at Pizza Hut).
The second photo is a delicious pasta dish I whipped up the other night. It was one of those cases where I stumbled upon a great looking recipe and happened to have all of the ingredients in my fridge/cupboard! Amazing. The recipe can be found here. I really enjoyed using tofu in my pasta sauce. The soy sauce was also a nice addition!
Hope you’ve all been eating well. :)
