Last night, with the weather still balmy, we ate outside.  I made a simple dinner from a recipe posted by The Pioneer Woman which was her Mexican Layer Dip. 

Yes…this was our dinner, not a snack.  It was easy to prepare, delicious to eat, and not a lot of washing up involved.  The recipe is here – the only tweaks I made were making my own salsa rather than The Pioneer Woman’s pico de gallo recipe.  I used tomatoes, red onion, lime juice, coriander and some seasoning. 

It looked pretty and tasted delicious, so if you’re tempted do try it out!  The photos also feature my newly acquired vintage tablecloth that I found at the carboot on the weekend.



Last night N and I tried out a fellow bloggers recipe for dinner.  I am an avid follower of The Pioneer Woman, especially her cookery section, and loved the simplicity of her Simple Sesame Noodles and knew I would try it out. 

Although – as normal – I didn’t follow the recipe to the letter, I did use almost all of the ingredients she suggested for the sesame dressing, just not measured carefully.  She uses a lovely combination of soy sauce, sugar, minced garlic, rice vinegar, sesame oil, and a hit of chilli. 


You simply whisk all the dressing ingredients together – we didn’t have chilli oil so I substituted some dried chilli flakes and a dash of Tabasco.  Cook the noodles – we used Japanese soba noodles.  Mix in the dressing.  And add some sliced spring onions.


We also included our own addition of some teriyaki mushrooms – a mixture chopped oyster and chestnut mushrooms, fried with a little teriyaki and soy sauce added towards the end, then turn up the heat so the mushrooms go golden and slightly caramelised at the edges.


Simply scrummy.  For the full recipe and directions go here.  And for other delicious dishes from Ree head over to The Pioneer Woman.

Oh, and I haven’t forgotten the follow-up parts to our Italy holiday, more on that coming soon!
