Mmmmm. Yum. This week’s inspiration comes to you via my currently being renovated kitchen. I’ve chosen some new tiles, Mr Suger finished the cut through to the dining/living room… It’s all happening and I’m dreaming of dinner parties. Of having people over, of cooking and eating for and with friends. Food. This week it is all about food.
The thing I love most about food is that with a little preparation, some research and a good knife or two you can make something special. I’m not an artist, if you’ve seen me draw you’ll testify, but when I cook I get to be creative. Artistic even and inventive. Lashings of colour and texture, spices and flavours. It’s inspiring, don’t you think?
Find all these delicious pins and inspiration on my Fooding and Drinking Board on Pinterest. You’re welcome team. This board has taken me a long time to curate into this colourful, delicious world that it is. I’m a bit nervous sharing it actually. Isn’t that strange? Do me a favour, love it, would you.
What’s inspiring YOU this week? Wanna come to dinner?
Hi! I’m Melissa Walker Horn. Around here, they call me Suger. I’m the Chief Blogger and doer of all the things here at Suger Coat It. Blogging since 1901; I love a casual ootd, taking photos, and writing about things that irk or inspire me. I love wine and cheese, long days at the beach and spending time with my family. I make stuff for the internet over at Chalkboard Digital. You know, living the sweet life.
I never say no to dinner, especially when someone else is cooking! Can’t wait to see the new kitchen and all the deliciousness that is going to be made in it. Off to stalk your board now…
Awesome! This is going to be the best dinner party. Haha. And newish kitchen, there’s some of the old stuff staying for now, stupid money doesn’t grow on trees.
That entire pinterest board has me drooling all over my laptop. Also: YES I want to come over for dinner!!! 🙂
I know right!? Haha. That’s me at night. Yuuum.
Oh yes, I would love to come to dinner lol! I love food blogs and they inspire me a lot, even though my husband is the better cook I’m always surprised that there are some recipes out there that are very yummy and easy to prepare. I always love trying them. Love, Kirsten xx
Sure! Come on over. Haha. We have no power to our kitchen right now, but we’ll throw something together. New recipes are the best, old favourites are awesome, but when something new just comes together, it’s like magic.
Food is so totally inspiring! I am continually inspired by the thought of making yummy, nutritious, colourful meals that are praised and loved by the people that I feed. You have some great ideas on your Pinterest board. That vegetable bolognese has certainly inspired me! I have a pulled pork recipe that I made my own, and its a winner in our house. It takes me 5 hours to cook it up and it lasts 3 days! Pulled pork breakfast burrito’s, pulled pork omelettes, pulled pork wraps, pulled pork and apple slaw, pulled pork and cheese flautas… There is nothing like an amazing flavourful slow cooked meat recipe. Recently, I am into making wee minced meat nuggets. Chicken, turkey or lamb are the favourites here in our house. You just mix a kilo of one type of minced meat with half a finely diced onion and a whole courgette grated, add spices if you like and 1 egg if using lamb or beef mince. Roll them up into little balls, and cook on baking paper in an oven tray on about 180 degrees until brown. I keep them in the fridge and they’re awesome to grab on the go, or to munch on as a snack. Dip them in my homemade sweet chilli sauce or homemade satay sauce, and my hubby LOVES them! They’re also great chopped up in omelettes in the mornings or with salad or slaw in a wrap for lunch. So versatile, so easy and SO yummy!
YUM! I’ll need that pulled pork recipe I assume. It sounds delicious!
