In the last couple of months I've been quietly reminding myself get into the swing of blogging things. This undoubtedly has proven to be a bigger task that I thought it would be. The space between posts is somewhat sad and it serves as a reminder of what weekends were like - early starts to churn out dish after dish, which were then whisked out onto the porch to be photographed to its glory. I've been trying to emulate that feeling on more than one occasion but failed miserably. I've lost my touch.
Not one to be defeated, I woke up this weekend, gung-ho - adamant that I am going to get over this plateau and make a proper comeback. Not some weepy, half-assed attempt I've made in the past. So with the determination of a warrior, I cooked lunch for the family - chicken curry, chicken in soy sauce and cabbage with mustard seeds and egg.
Despite that sounding like a lot of food, I had one more recipe up my sleeve. You see, earlier in the morning, I woke up from a lovely weekend slumber, with a deep longing for a warm banana and white chocolate muffin. Not quite sure where the craving has come from seeing that I am on a strict diet and exercise regiment but who am I to resist a muffin urge. So off to the kitchen I go, and well, well, what do I find? Overly ripe bananas, to the point of mush, which required immediate use. 15 minutes later and 10 large muffin liners were filled and ready for the oven.
