September Favourites on Gin & Griddle

GG Logo Banner

1st October… already! How did this happen, the Summer (what summer!) disappeared and now September too. Changing the format of this monthly post a little – used to be more about the best of what was on Gin & Griddle and making it more about my favourite things from September instead… 

First up a recipe I posted that has got a lot of love, Italian Sausage Pasta – using the best ingredients you can buy, it’s still a very affordable and delicious meal. So good especially for this chillier Autumn evenings.

Another definite favourite from September, Gin menu… we had friends coming over for drinks before we went out for dinner. Decided to jazz it up a little, printed a menu with the gin selection we were offering, different garnishes, and a few nibbles to enjoy the gins with…

My lovely friend Kate from Kate’s Kabin put up this amazing post – a recipe for Guinness Chocolate Cake – if I was as good as baker as Kate is I would definitely be baking this but think it might be beyond my current skills! Click on the picture to bring you to the recipe!

Sunday lunch at One Pico – definitely a treat but an amazing one, I love town on a Sunday, lunch and a stroll, maybe a wander through the shops and a drink or two. Those scallops though 🙂

Another favourite from September, trying my hand at baking bread, this is soda bread so not very complex I know but still I was proud!
