My week - Back to work

17 January 2015

The very best lunch break with the lovely Sophie, who brought me the sweetest mini bouquet from her flower farm

It's been the week of excellent packed lunches. There were yummy pea and pesto quinoa patties (especially good with a side of sweet cherry tomatoes yum!) and soupy noodle pots

And no packed lunch is complete without snacks.

I've long been a fan of Modern Love essays and like many people this week became fascinated by the 36 questions from 'To Fall in Love With Anyone, Do This.' I love the idea of getting people to stray from the stories they tell about themselves and the questions are so probing and personal that I'd be interested in hearing pretty much anyone answer them. 

I made a surprising and delicious dessert last night, poached pears with cardamon and saffron for some great friends who are leaving town at the end of the month. Fun fact: there are black and green cardamon pods. You want the black ones for sweet recipes.

Two exciting Instagram discoveries - my dream handbag (it has eyes!) and a Rifle Paper co. diary is coming in 2016!

And a documentary recommendation from a friend at work (most of our emails end with a link to a doco we've enjoyed recently) - Joy Division
