Reflections

These photos were taken out at my mum’s last week. My childhood home. I don’t spend a lot of time out there, mostly it’s not a conscious choice, but I think deep down I just have too many painful memories of being young. I spent some time walking through the village and seeing how it had changed a little over the years, but mostly stayed exactly the same. The same shops and local businesses were still set up, even the ones that closed down long ago still had their painted signs fading above the rusting doors. It feels like another lifetime ago, like I’m not even that person anymore.

A lot is changing around me in these recent months and I just feel like I’m stuck in the mud. Being 26 is a strange period in your life; Friends are getting married and making babies and that’s not something that is even on my horizon, but I still feel a little left behind. I’ve lived in the same city my whole life and I desperately want to take off and see the world, before I get really stuck here for good.

This beautiful wire wrapped ring is handmade by my favourite jewellery artist and a dear friend, Kica Bijoux. Her work is simply breathtaking and browsing through her shop on Etsy is like walking through a wood out in the countryside, watching the birds and feeling the nature all around you. I am in awe at how she creates such a lovely atmosphere.

Recipe: Gourmet Grilled Cheese

Today I’m sharing Boyfriend’s amazing grilled cheese recipe!!

Here in the UK we don’t really have grilled cheese. I guess cheese on toast or a cheese toastie would be our closest alternative, but trust me, they are no where near in the same league! We had grilled cheese sandwiches when we visited New York a few years ago and they are one of the only things we loved that we’ve managed to recreate at home!

Ingredients
Crusty sliced bread or Farmhouse style loaf
Butter
Cheese (we used Double Gloucester)
Bacon (smoked)
Avocado

 Equipment
Griddle pan
Grill pan (optional)
Cheese grater (optional)
Spatula
Knife

Steps

– Cook your bacon. You can either grill it or cook it in the griddle pan. We like ours crispy for this recipe.

– Grate your cheese. You can slice it instead, but grated cheese melts quicker.

– Butter the outside of your bread.

– Pile your ingredients onto one piece of bread; bacon, cheese and then avocado.

– Place into the griddle pan on a medium heat and top with another slice of bread.

– After a few minutes, being sure not to burn the bread, carefully flip over your sandwich.

– When both sides are grilled to your taste and the cheese is melted, serve immediately with a nice mug of Yorkshire Tea.

 

A perfect, easy yet impressive looking snack to cook when entertaining a group of people for breakfast or lunch!
