Recipes // Prawn and cashew noodle stir fry

Sweet Monday recipes, prawn noodle stir fry

Stir fry is my go to meal when I don't know what to cook. If you're eating alone, or if you have lots of veg that needs using up, it's a great quick and easy dish.

Prawns are one of my favourite things to eat, and luckily Stew has mastered how to cook them perfectly. I tend to over cook them as they only take a couple of minutes, if that.

Events // Biscuiteers

Sweet Monday, Biscuiteers, London, Notting Hill

Last week I got to visit the Biscuiteers cafe in Notting Hill with boohoo. We all enjoyed an afternoon of icing fashion based biscuits, and drinking yummy milkshakes! 

As the afternoon progressed so did our skills, and by the end of the session I managed to decorate my lipstick pretty well, if I do say so myself. It's surprising just how difficult icing biscuits is! 

The wonderful ladies that work at Biscuiteers are incredibly talented. The whole shop is practically made out of biscuit, and I love the way the outside of the shop looks like the illustration on their packaging.

Recipe // Tomato and basil meatballs, with creamy polenta

Sweet Monday, homemade tomato and basil meatballs, creamy polenta recipe

Last year whilst living in Melbourne, we dined at The Meatball and Wine Bar, and I had my first experience of creamy polenta! It's safe to say, after one bite I was sold!! One of my favourite things to eat in life is creamy mash potato, and polenta has the same consistency, but tastes even better. That's a big statement from me! 

Sadly we had not tasted it again since that wonderful day a year ago. So when my parents were in town last weekend visiting, we decided to try our hand at making our own. And I know I say this with every recipe I publish, but... IT'S SO EASY!
