January really is one of those months that my appetite doesn't know what it wants. One half of me wants something warm and comforting to hold off the the cold weather and the other half has had it up to here with rich stodgy winter food. So trying to find the balance between the two is often difficult. My solution has been to stick with the winter foods for now, but generally teaming them up with a light side salad, bulghur wheat packed with fresh flavours and spiky lemon dressings, which is so far working pretty well as a compromise. This is all fine for now but I am so ready for some new foodie inspiration and thankfully spring is just around the corner, so things are most definitely looking up! In fact we are busy getting the garden ready to plant some vegetables for year 3 of my kitchen garden project. This year will by my year- I'm telling ya! No spinach going to seed, no dead as a dodo carrots, no this year it's going to be all change... I hope!
