In the world of gardening it’s all about planting ahead for the next season – now forward planning is not our strong point, but fortunately there are people out there who get a kick out of such things. Organised people. With calendars and stuff.
All this (occasional) sunshine has me hankering after the most summery of drinks. I recently discovered the utterly refreshing and dangerously drinkable Elderflower Collins and it’s my new weekend tipple – try it next time the sun makes a cameo appearance…
Nip of gin (I particularly fancy Hendricks)
1 1/2 tbsp elderflower cordial (or 2 tbsp, if you absolutely love the stuff)
Squeeze of lemon, plus a slice of lemon to garnish
Sprig of mint
Place your ice, gin and cordial in a cocktail shaker and give it a good old shake.
Continuing in our Lazyland week of sloth, today we’re looking at the guilty, trashy pleasure of made-for-TV biopic movies.
With on-demand movies and Netflix these days, we have to make a conscious decision of what to watch. Which means you only have yourself to blame when you lose two hours of your weekend to Why Did I Get Married Too starring Janet Jackson.
What is the laziest dinner, apart from a takeaway of course? Well I would be tempted to say a bowl of cereal, but a close second in my mind are cheese toasties. I LOVE cheese on toast. It requires minimum effort, hardly any washing up, and it’s pretty tasty too − washed down with a cup of tea, in front of the telly of course.
We know, we know. It’s all feeling a little fuzzy around the edges still. There was the booze. Then the carb loading you did to absorb the booze. If your liver is still feeling the strain, why not revisit this deliciously detoxing smoothie from our resident clean eater and yogi extraordinaire, Christine Joos?
