July 2014 Favourites

Oh July, how quickly you’ve gone. It has been a busy but very enjoyable month: a visit from our good friend P., sunny days and reading in the park, Yorkshire, a great meal out with friends we met last year in Alaska, fun times volunteering, a trip to the theatre, and lots more. As I am off to Canada tomorrow morning (!!!!), this post is coming a wee bit early.

On the death of American seafood. A good read, and the book looks good too.

Blueberry recipes galore. More here.

“Every trendy restaurant menu” — at least for London, this is dead on.

Gossip on Halifax’s restaurant scene. + part 2

◌ And while we’re on the subject, the craft beer guide to NS! 🙂

Better living through motivational passwords: I LOVE this! (via Cup of Jo)

Marinades from Bill Granger.

◌ Build your own gin + tonic bar.

“Can I really not manage a brief subway ride without textual support? Is that normal?” Took the words out of my mouth, Zadie.

◌ I love this table and this kitchen. And pretty much all of these too.

Books coming over the next 6 months. I’m particularly looking forward to Mantel, French, The Kills (already out here in the UK), and Atwood.

Regal-looking sheep in North Yorkshire :)
Regal-looking sheep on the North York Moors 🙂

And with that, I’m on holiday, and the blog will be on hiatus for a couple of weeks! 😀 😀 😀
