Thanks for visiting as we join Tricky for Five on Friday on his FAST blog link-up.
This week I offer you five of my latest culinary finds which make me feel full of beans.
One - Liquorice Tea
Having always been a coffee person, since my trip to Australia I have switched to tea, in particular liquorice tea which is available from most supermarkets here in the UK and have practically cut out coffee altogether apart from a free one from Waitrose from time to time. I have felt so much better for the change. The world of fruity teas seems to have exploded recently with things like nettle and peppermint, cinnamon and lime and ginger on offer but you need to watch out that it's all natural and no flavourings have been added.
Two - Skyr Yogurt
This Icelandic yogurt comes in plain, strawberry and honey flavours and is a delicious thick fat free and sugar reduced addition to my breakfast cereal each morning or on top of some freshly picked strawberries.
Three - Auntie Val's Marmalade
There are so many types of Auntie Val's marmalade which I am going to work through from Orange and stem ginger, Orange and blueberry, lemon and elderflower and liquorange and plenty more besides. You can get it from farm shops, 5* hotels, golf clubs and even online here. What I liked about the company is their attitude to disabled employees those with special needs and learning difficulties, it's all about giving them opportunities with training and work experience. Here's their website.
You can't beat freshly picked raspberries especially when you've picked them yourself as there's all that standing-in-the-farm-taking-in-the-atmosphere in every bite.
Five - Cheese Scones
I haven't mentioned cheese scones for a while so here they are just in case you think I have forgotten all about them!
Have a great weekend.
