Food and drink - dedicate a layout to your favourite consumables! Whether it's chocolate, coffee or wine, tell us all about it :)
So, like Amanda and I, will you struggle to decide which food is your favourite, or do you already know instantly?? We can't wait to see your challenges linked with the Inlinkz for September in the sidebar.I love food. A lot. It was hard to choose something to focus my layout on. In the end I decided that my favourite meals were roast dinners, not just because of the food itself, but because it's a time when we're together as a family. Our Sunday roast dinners often include extended family too, so it is a memory of good food and past times with family.
To me there's nothing like a nice cup of tea and 2 pieces of caramel as an afternoon pick me up! I had fun being pretty on this layout to match my mug! I used a doily that I secretly put in my bag when I was in a pub recently!!
This goes hand in hand with my 'thing' for mugs. I was so pleased with this bargain earlier this year.
Over the past couple of years I've become so much more aware and tried to learn a lot more about what happens to our food, how it's farmed, processed etc before it reaches our stores. This year, for the first time, I thought I'd have a go at growing some of my own organic fruit and vegetables in my garden, so when I read the details for this challenge, just knew I'd have to create a page about my first 'growing your own' efforts. Not all of my growing efforts were successful but these tomatoes were delicious and our favourites from our first crop :-)
I love ALL food so when Amanda asked us to scrap about our favourite consumable I had to think a little about what my favourite food is. It actually didn't take too long in the end though. My favourite is a cream tea, so much so that we're having a cream tea as our wedding meal rather than a formal sit down meal :)
A twist on the challenge! I've decided to pick on one of my biggest food-related indulgences - those foodie magazines they have at every supermarket here in the UK!
Journaling says: "I love eating good foods - but also good-looking foods. SO I steer clear of the food magazines. But once in a while, I indulge and bake, cook, eat to my heart's content."
I picked a photo from a recent magazine (Woman & Home) and did a sort of photo 'collage' of one of the yummy photos of all the breads and oven bakes. Yum. Who can resist that?? :)
Looking forward to reading your food & drink indulgences!
