Link Love

A while ago I discovered a really lovely, brilliant blog. The Cottage Smallholder. I read it nearly every day. This morning, it set me up for the day, despite the rubbish weather, that is anything but summer like. Do read The Cottage Smallholder - it will make you smile, sometimes even laugh out loud!

I made a fantastic West Indies inspired curry last night which I changed and tweaked some of the leftovers so Little and Small could eat it today, they dovoured it too. I'll blog about that later in the week and tomorrow of course we will be celebrating Independence Day - I got a huge rack of ribs from the butcher today so for tomorrow Happy Independence Day to all our American family and to any American people who read this.

We'll be eating the ribs with homemade coleslaw, corn on the cob, potatoes, picked fresh from the garden and followed by a lovely red, white and blue dessert which we still haven't decided on...

In the meantime check out this post by The Cottage Smallholder.

Thanks Amanda for mentioning me in dispatches. I'm very flattered.

Ribs. These are a favourite with me. I nearly bought some tonight and regretted it when we were chomping Chicken fajitas. Looking forward to browsing your Independence Day recipes.

Hi Kelly-Jane, Glad you enjoyed it.

Hi CS, I had to mention it. That post made me smile throughout the day and I knew other people would enjoy it.

Happy Independence Day, Amanda! (Do you think Americans say that, or are we demonstrating in three words that we are not American?)

Today is the day I am shamelessly pinching your wonderful jam tart with stars to give to a whole lot of Americans, crew and their parents, who will be playing rounders here tonight. I have a very strong feeling that they will win, because it's so like baseball.

Amanda at Little Foodies said...

You're probably spot on!
Hope the tart goes down well and that you have a happy team when they return to play rounders and feast...
