31 of 365


Currently reading: Inkheart by Cornelia Funke. I saw the film a couple of weeks back - which is the wrong way round for me! I much prefer to read the book first! (And then to get annoyed at all the ways they changed it in the film....) But anyway, I really enjoyed the film so decided to read the book. And then discovered that it's the first in a trilogy, yay!! By the time this posts I may well have read all three....

Another part of our Sunday roasts is Yorkshire puddings. The Boy being practically vegetarian and The Girl just being very fussy, neither of them eat whatever meat it is The Doctor and I have on a Sunday, so in a bid to get some protein into them I make a batch of Yorkshire puddings each week. And there are always enough for me and The Doctor to have a couple too ;-)

Mel I have never eaten Yorkshire Pudding - how do you get protein into them ... I always thought they were more of a bready/doughy type of thing?

I'm in need of some new fantasy trilogies so will have a look for this one

I haven't seen that one yet and am always in search of something to fill the void left since the end of the Harry Potter series *sob* so will have to check it out :)
Yum, Yorkshires!

Emily and I saw Inkheart and thoroughly enjoyed it. Hope having seen the film hasn't spoilt the books for you ;)
Love Yorkshire Puddings (and so do all our children), I had been going to make a roast today but Jon is taking me out for our anniversary instead. I won't complain, no cooking :)

I'm a huge fan of yorkshires and these look lovely!
I've never heard of this book though, will need to do a bit of research. I agree with you about seeing a film after enjoying a book, why do they have to change things? Don't they say 'If it aint broke - don't fix it!'?

You cannot beat a good ol' Yorkshire Pudding. Amy is totally missing out...

Ruth said...

Yorkshire pud? I was never that keen when I was a child because "it's got eggs in", but I eat it now! Has to be thin and crispy.

Love yorkshire puds....a roast dinner and lasagne are probably the only 2 meals that every member of our family eats!

You can put me in the yorkshire pudding ignorant camp - not a clue what's in them! I guess that's a yank for you! They do look lovely, though.

Lizzie said...

Mmmm, Yorkshire Pudding... but only if they're properly made - I hate 'em burned or soggy!

Good photos.. Haven't read Inkheart. Another for my list, thanks Mel!

Jane said...

Mmmmm Yorkshires!! We had a yummy roast beef and yorkshires dinner last night too. I love my roast on a Sunday! It must be the British in me :)

We were going to watch Inkheart again last night but didn't finish dinner in time....I love the movie. DS has the book - I bet it's a good one.....I love the whole idea of a book within a book......
