A usual Monday morning... cloudy and grey outside, which is really not helping me to wake up in the morning. However, today was better than the whole of last week which says a lot. I brought the banana cookies to work which was appreciated by my colleagues, although they did hint that they would have preferred the Valentine cookies. Maybe I'll humour them and bring some tomorrow.
Also, I noticed my first follower today! :) I'm new at this whole blogging thing, and sometimes I wonder (just like Julie in 'Julie & Julia') if anyone actually reads this. It's nice to know someone does, especially if I know them ;) Though the main reason is that this is just much better than posting one-liners on FB all the time. Yes, I am pleased :)
BUT the best thing today was the dinner I cooked. I found this great recipe online for potato and chorizo gratin. I used a little more potatoes and a little less creme fraiche than the recipe called for but it still came out very yummy :) Sadly I didnt take pictures as my version looked nothing like the cookbook version after being served, but then that's always the case when serving food that came out of an oven dish.
But check out the recipe here: http://www.goodtoknow.co.uk/recipes/399091/michel-roux-jr---039-s-potato-and-chorizo-gratin, it's amazing!
