Feeling a little daring?

Avocado and lime chilled cheesecake

The Mr. had a birthday this week and I indulged in some full on  cooking time- Mexican in all it's flare takes a little bit of time. Mango salsa, baked black bean burritos, some guacamole and this!  I tried to find a cold desert that would go with Mexican and this one turned out better than I expected.  Actually it was delicious, a good finish to a spicy meal on a very hot evening. Click here for the recipe if you want to give it a try.
Happy Friday to one and all

Hope to see some of you here!

Potato salad with capers and lemon

A recent favourite 

dressing: 2 garlic cloves pressed,
 the zest of one whole lemon
fresh rosemary ( 2-3 springs) leaves finely chopped 
2 Tbs capers
olive oil
juice of one lemon
salt and pepper to taste
*small tip - toss the potatoes with the dressing as soon as they are done cooking and leave to cool in the fridge dressed. 

Ahh sweet summer sunsets
sandy toes
salty skin
 iced coffee mornings
rushing to do anything or go anywhere quickly is impossible
 the heat is heavy 

May your Monday be slow and gentle
