It’s Monday and what a weekend that was!


It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. This meme started with J Kaye’s Blog   and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date


Hey and happy Monday to you. Did you guys join the readathon? This was the first time I tried to update in too many places at once and essentially neglected this very blog! In the end I just stuck to Instagram and Litsy. I even won a prize on Litsy for this spine poetry post I did!

I’m gonna be lazy here and just add some screenshots of my readathon day. I didn’t really manage to read that much – two comics and one book! I did however eat a really good burger, bought some Nespresso pods, picked up some spices and vegetables from a South Asian supermarket, marinate some chicken thighs and drumsticks with a tandoori-yoghurt marinade and prepare for the Sunday lunch we had invited some friends to.

Homemade tandoori chicken and basmati rice for dinner with a cucumber and cilantro raita




Well I just made this tandoori-style chicken (using a boxed tandoori spice mix I found at an Indian supermarket), as well as a basmati rice and cucumber raita, for some friends who came over. We had regular chicken wings, grilled veg and naan for the kids.

Oven-roasted brussels sprouts, maybe with sweet potatoes and pork chop

But am also tempted by this roast chicken and cabbage sheet pan dinner. I’ve not thought of putting cabbage in the oven before, so am really curious!
