A little movie for you!

If you fancy a good laugh, head over to The Twilight Spoof  - Mary and her two cousins Finn and Ru remade their favorite movie and it is a scream! 

We'd love to see them get lots of hits so do please pass the link on to anyone you know who loves Twilight!!

Enjoy it!! 


Summer Lovin...

We caught a glimpse of summer a few weekends ago... and it was wonderful, spirits picked up, traffic jams were full of smiling faces, brown arms dangling from windows - no matter where you were there was sun to enjoy!
We took ourselves to the beach and, on returning, wanted something quick, easy and summery to satisfy those hunger pangs.
Asparagus & Lemon Pasta

You'll need
1 lemon, squeezed and zested
500gms cooked pasta, Farfalle or Penne are best, I used Fusilli out of desperation!!
4 tbsp of virgin olive oil
1 garlic clove, crushed
100gms pancetta, optional
10 Asparagus tips

Heat the oil and add the garlic.    Add the pancetta and cook through. Add the chopped asparagus and stir until bright green.  Remove from heat, add lemon zest and juice and stir the pasta through.
