GOOD THINGS

About week ago I was waking up to cook – a lot.

Wild Nettle and Blue Cheese Toasts, Spice Roasted Chickpeas, Spring Cous Cous Cups, Herby Potato Salad, Spring Diced Radish Salad, Roasted Salmon, Wild Nettle Pesto, Sweet Cashew Cream Jars and a big juicy cake slathered with chamomile infused whip cream sprinkled with bee pollen.

I know the likely hood of that happening is slim, and I know it’s not helpful to get myself worked up about the what if- could be -maybe of tomorrow but it did make me think.
