I didn’t quite get round to writing a Sunday Summary last weekend, so here’s a little catch up of what I’ve been up to lately. As usual, most of it involves food. I’ve been pretty good at menu planning and trying out some new recipes lately (aided by my new ’50s housewife apron from Etsy), like the Pinterest-tastic courgetti, and a homemade curry night with butter chicken, carrot & peanut raita, honey chilli potatoes and naan bread. Delish! Of course, I have had a couple of meals out too. Yesterday evening, Laura and I were down in Stockbridge (more on that in a minute) so decided to try out The Scran and Scallie whilst we were there. The food definitely lived up to expectations, I’ll be going back ASAP! We tucked into fish & chips and steak pie, followed by the tastiest vanilla & rhubarb cheesecake I’ve ever eaten. Earlier in the week I headed along to Las Iguanas for a long overdue catch up with some of my blogging pals and we took advantage of the midweek cocktail deals. Also in food news, last weekend saw a trip to Yo Sushi to combat mid-shopping spree hunger, and brunch at my favourite hangout The Blackbird. This was actually the first time I’d had brunch there, and I can confirm that the French toast with bacon & maple syrup is most excellent.
So, I mentioned we’d been in Stockbridge and the reason was to visit the brand new cat café, Maison de Moggy. Cat café! Basically, you pay your entry fee and then spend an hour or two hanging out with a bunch of cats. I’m not really the biggest cat fan in the world, but it was a pretty fun thing to do just for the novelty of it – and I have also now decided I want a bengal cat after falling in love with cheeky little Marcel and Phillipe. You can find Maison de Moggy at 26 Hamilton Place for the next few months, then it will be moving on to another location in Edinburgh.
Aside from a couple of cinema trips (to see Birdman and The Theory of Everything) and some shopping (hello new Accessorize bag and some makeup I really don’t need), things have been fairly quiet. I’m using this terrible weather as a great excuse to stay in and read lots of books, watch lots of Netflix and eat lots of snacks.
